Two things.

1. Run the Microsoft "fixit" and see if it finds anything Microsoft Fix it Center Online

2. A far fetched possibility but run a malware scan, with malwarebytes, and see if it shows anything.

Nothing is wrong for the Fix it as i used that already just scanning virus scanner now anyway

but whats getting me is i have the right driver. But in the picture below all of the MIC/Line in etc green bars are constantly FULL green 24/7 dont move up or down liek someone is screaming down it and dont change with or without a mic present i have no webcam either just speaker in green port how it should be.

(tried disabling them and muting them and volume down)

But on playback devices nothing will move the green bars on that and the correct one is selected the only thing that indicates it works is if i right click my playback device and do test it shows the green bars moving and making a decent sound. But actually no sound form my speakers is coming out.

My speakers work fine just tried them.

here is the pic about the mic's :

I'm starting to think there is some type of hardware issue. Nothing with software/drivers seems to make a difference.

Thats what i thought but surely cannot be a problem with onboard motherboard its not even that that old and it was just on sleep mode so its not like anything has destroyed it weird one dont you seem to agree?

Btw I made an A-Z post of drivers for motherboards and included CPU-z And intel's software update utility. Just wondering as you seem someone randomly jack the thread for drivers help its may be worth sticking to forum as obviously my power is limited

Just trying to help !

The age of a motherboard/power supply etc doesn't mean it won't fail. I've worked in computers for longer than I care to mention (I started with mainframes in 1962) and have seen many failures on new, nearly new, 1 year old, etc.

It does go into a power saving mode but not completely powered down. When it comes up the power supply potentially could zap something. Not saying that happened but the potential for that is there.

The other potential thing is a Windows caused problem and in that case its going to take a complete "clean" reinstall. This is a hassle but may be needed, unless you have a full hard drive backup of before this happened that you can restore the PC with (this is a prime example of why to make full hard drive backups).

Hi Yeah the audio device is Asus P5GD1-VM Motherboard Audio Realtek ALC 861 High Definition Audio 8-channel CODEC

this audio system supports vista drivers
You may need to install a sound card that will support win7 drivers.

Vista drivers work well in Windows 7, as Win 7 audio functions are identical to Vista. XP drivers, however, are not compatibile because of the different handling of some audio functions.
