Doubtful that did anything... and you've tried more than one set of speakers.
Here's some related graphics.
What I show under "Playback Devices"
This is my "Communications" tab setting
Back to the first graphic with Speakers selected, the Configure Button, try the test, any sound?
Under the Properties button.
The Advanced tab.
The levels tab, notice I've scrolled down and have the "Front" level at 100%.
Disabled Enhancements, select Immediate mode first.
Under the Recording tab.
Considering you couldn't install the Realtek driver the problem may be hardware related, perhaps that motherboard has an older BIOS.
