What is the configuration of your speakers? Is the subwoofer on a separate plug or part of a front/rear set (2.1)?
Remove the plugs and re-insert. Make sure they are going in all the way.
Yes, I know they work. The backstory is that I had an audio card (Creative Xi-Fi, or something along those lines) and the speakers worked fine. I got a new graphics card, but it's a double-wide (GeForce 560 Ti), so now there's no room for the sound card because otherwise it'll be right on top of the video card. Hence the move back to onboard sound.
The configuration (I'm no expert on speakers, so please bear with me) is that the 4 speakers (R, L, RR, RL) all plug into the subwoofer. From there, the subwoofer plugs into the computer with a red, green, and black cable.
