realtek ac97, onboard sound

hi guys, new here and is my first post,
so i have a dell comp, with a realtek ac97 onboard sound card, now running windows 7, but have no sound coming from pc.
have uninstalled sound drivers and reinstalled new ones, have done this 3 times now, but still no sound,
finally i have sound going to my head phones but still no sound coming from the on board speakers.
I do not have any desk top speakers as very short of room, and wife would flip in bed room lol.
any suggestions.

If you are using your headphones, the pc speakers will not work... if you unplug your headphones, do you get sound??

no sound when taking out headphones, even tho music player shows sound bar moving.

device manager says driver is working normal.

should i go to packard bell web site and see if any updated drivers there, as been to realtek and drivers do not give me sound with out head phones?
