Windows 7: no luck getting sound out of my box

no luck getting sound out of my box

I own a HP P6110Y and no luck getting sound out of my box.

I've literally tried everything I could think of....
- uninstalled and reinstalled the audio drivers
- disabled and enabled the on-board sound card
- tested the speakers
- verified the status in the device manager
- increased the volume in windows and on the speakers
- replaced the speakers
- connected to speakers into the headphone jack
- install a new sound card (this blew my mind as to how it didn't solve the problem)
- reinstalled windows 7 (in both 32 and 64 bit modes)
- removed the add video card
- checked all the audio wires connections on the motherboard
- ran dxdaig and everything is reported as ok

The system is now back to it's original configuration, using both the on-board sound and video. No new hardware was added except for a printer. It a fresh install so practically no software has been installed either.

Here is a link to the specs of my desktop.
Anyone have any ideas ????

Sound card Type: Integrated
Sound card Name: Realtek ALC888S
Driver Version : 6.0.1.5910

Did you try the drivers available directly from Realtek?

So,

You have plugged a set of stereo speakers into the light green audio out on the back of the computer?

You're using the very latest Realtek driver R2.51, available here:

Realtek

Right click on the Microsoft speaker icon in the task bar, select playback devices.

You've set "Speakers" as the default output device. (green check mark)

Single left click on speakers and select the properties button lower right.
Go to the Enhancements Tab, select Immediate Mode, Disable -ALL- effects, scroll down if you need to. Or use the Disable check box. (Might take a reboot)

Now go to the Levels tab, make sure all relevant levels are up.

Under Advanced, set to 16-bit 44.1.

A solution I posted several months ago was to simply go through the audio settings and toggle each one.

Mute, then unmute all audio devices.

If "Speakers" is the default playback device, select digital output as default, then switch back to Speakers as Default.

Apparently, after a Win 7 install, devices can look like they're selected but in fact are in some kind of driver limbo, reselecting or toggling a device, whether it be input (mic, line, Stereo Mix) or output (Speakers, Digital, Headphones) activates input/output.

Immediate Mode is enabled. I've also tired checking and unchecking every sound effect available.

Now go to the Levels tab, make sure all relevant levels are up. DONE

Under Advanced, set to 16-bit 44.1. Tried several options here, no results.
