Digital Audio S/PDIF problem

So guys,I havent been turning on my pc(using win 7) for like a month,when i did it was saying Digital Audio S/PDIF and no sound was going nor through speakers nor through headphones.Before that everything was working fine.So,since i had some viruses on it i reinstalled win,formated both particions,but still that Digital Audio S/PDIF stayed there,in the device menager it says High Definition Audio Device,and it has 2 of them,i tried through device menager to update it but it says that the best driver is already intalled.I searched threads here,tried some downloads but nothing is changed.Since im a musician a little,gamer a little and pc user i really need to fix this,can someone help me?

Here are the specs

Headphones and Loudspeakers only accept analog audio. You need a Digital to Analog converter, i.e. a sound card, to decode the digital audio and convert it to analog signal which is then amplified by the amplifier and then transferred to headphones and loudspeakers which translate those signals to sound waves.

Try setting the "speakers" as the default audio device by right clicking the sound icon on the system tray -> playback devices -> click on speakers -> set default audio device.

Disable the S/PDIF and then see if you can make the Speakers the default playback device.

This is an older motherboard and I couldn't find any Win 7 drivers for it, although it may have Vista drivers which will work. As you only have "High Definition Audio Device" that suggests that the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver and not the actual hardware sound driver.

Is the 3.5mm plug connected to the "green color" slot on the rear panel of your desktop?

If it's connected to it, you should be able to set the speakers as the default device.

The amount of memory may or may not be an issue. I see you only have 1.5GB of RAM but have Windows 7 64 bit OS. The main reason for 64 bit OS is that it can address more than 4GB of RAM. In fact the 64 bit OS requires more system memory than a 32 bit, not leaving you much RAM. Microsoft system requirements are MINIMUM of 2GB for 64 bit OS.

Alright.

Go to device manager -> Sound, video and game controllers -> right click on the High Definition Audio Device (if 2 shows up, just do the same for both) -> properties -> details -> on drop down, select Hardware ID's and copy and paste those here. I'll see if it's actually realtek or a different manufacturer.

You can also try those on a search engine to see which manufacturer and even find the right drivers for that device.

If it's realtek, try installing the drivers from the realtek website here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/...own=false#High Definition Audio Codecs

It showed 2 of them so i did for both.

Fireberd,I am not sure what do you want to say,but im using x64 since when i am using windows 7 which is couple of years now,everything was always working,even when i had 1GB of RAM,i put 1 more in another slot from 512 just so i can play competitive one game since i had some iching problems.
