Windows 7: The volume bar shows sound but no sound through speakers.

Have you checked the mixer window? make sure there are no types (line out, speakers, headphones, CD, WAV) that are muted. Make sure the fader is UP on each type.

in the BIOS the HD Audio controler was set to [auto] the other option was [disabled]

Under front panel support it was set to [AC97] and the other option was [hd audio]

If it's the Mixer with a low level I'm going to go out and kick a cinder block... but it could be.

Ok... if it wasn't the mixer... (whick I always forget about)

Set the audio to disabled, reboot, after the machine is settled reboot and get into the BIOS, set audio to Auto and set front panel support to HD Audio.

see what happens.

I checked the mixer right off the start.

I tried changing around the bios settings and there was no change.

Also tried disabling the audio then installing the new driver, still nothing.

Whimper...

Seriously, that's all I can think of, strange that your other machines work without problems.

Can you try plugging the speakers in the front panel "Blue" jack.

I have tried every jack in the thing.

Is it possible that just the sound portion of the motherboard died?

It is possible, was it working with XP?

Since I have the same audio chip, I'll post some graphics later this even, I have a gig in an hour.

It was working in XP, but we did change the location of the computer after the upgrade...

Thanks again for the help, no rush.

Doubtful that did anything... and you've tried more than one set of speakers.

Here's some related graphics.

Considering you couldn't install the Realtek driver the problem may be hardware related, perhaps that motherboard has an older BIOS.
