Windows 7: NO sound Windows 7 32-bit using Realtek HD audio

OK, I have a couple of questions just to clarify things.
What are you using to listen to the sound and where is it plugged in? headset, front panel also tried back panel
Is the BIOS setting for HD Audio/AC97 set to match the case plug that's connected to that header? i don't know what's the right settings but I tried switching settings, but fails to hear any sound.
In Control Panel > Sound, what is set as the default playback device? If you are using speakers or a headset you do not want it set to HDMI. its realtek hd audio.

I purchased a USB sound card (adapter) which converts my phone jack to USB, windows installed a generic USB sound card adapter still the same issue the sound meter is going up and down but I still hear no sound.

Tested the headset with my iPhone, its not busted cause I hear music.

for now its generic USB Audio Device, since I'm using the USB adapter. Still no sound, output only the green indicator going up and down while I play audio file or go to youtube.

If I plugged directly to the ports, this system message comes up "The peripheral does not appear to be plugged in. Check the connection. Proceed to next step to finish." note* that my current BIOS setting is HD Audio.

If I restart the PC and change BIOS settings to AC'97, the computer will be able detect the audio device but no sound output, only the green indicator having sound activity but none that I can hear.


*** I installed the spyware removal and run system scan, it removed some adware and spyware but it didn't resolve the problem. And I didn't thought it would anyway xD

Can I suggest an Asus Xonar D series sound card and just use normal jacks? the DG card is really inexpensive and has very good mixing and effects functions.

Like I said before, the BIOS setting has to match the plug on the front panel jacks cable. It sounds like it should be set to AC97 as it detects when in that setting. Double check to make sure your sound isn't set to "muted". The speaker icon in the task monitor down next to the clock should indicate this by a red circle with a red bar though it.

My guess, and it is only a guess, is that Magic Jack screwed something up even though you uninstalled it. If it was me I'd reinstall. The only other option that comes to mind is system restore.

As much as I want to reinstall, I don't have the option. I hate to patch 3 of my online games (2-3 years patch). Dreadful
