No sound coming from speakers/headphones

Hi everyone, I bought a new computer recently and the sound doesn't seem to be working. I've tried updating the drivers, restarting the PC, downloading Windows Updates and none of them seem to work.

If anyone has a fix for this I'd be very grateful.

Go into control panel>sound and make sure your audio output device is chosen correctly. I`m assuming you have only 1 audio output in the back of your case ? Do you have a volume icon on the taskbar ? Is everything ok in sound in device manager ?

Everything seems to be fine in the Sound in Device Manager. And yes, I do have a volume icon in the taskbar.

Wait, should a headphone icon be showing up or something?

Yes, just like my pic, if you have a headphone jack in the front of the pc.
