Your spec indicate you are using Enterprise/32. Have you contacted your I.T. department on this problem you are having?

Hi,

Do you have them plugged in to front jacks or back jacks?
Also check your graphics/sound drivers.

Right click the speaker in the bottom left of the screen (Windows)
Go to Playback Devices, set the sound device you want the sound to come from.

Let me know the Results

Hi,

Try running the Hardware Diagnostics on your computer. If you get any error code, make a note of the error code.

Did you try doing System Restore? If no and if this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest try restoring your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.
For System Restore steps, you can refer to the URL mentioned: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/system-restore

Where/wheir did you get your copy of Enterprise? The reason I ask.
