Also I tried to install a USB external audio card and no sound was hear from that installed device ether.
bschrox; Welcome to Windows Seven Forums! We are glad you stopped in.
Please let me ask some basic questions first. What do you find when you click on the "speaker" icon, lower right task bar?
Open the "Volume Mixer" and "Sounds" and first see that sound has not been muted.
In sound properties, make sure the sound driver
has been enabled and check the properties.
Under the "Levels" tab, you can also check sound levels and muted sounds.
Finally, skipping "Enhacements" over to "Advanced", you can test several sound bit levels.
Post back and let us know what you find?
