Windows 7: New rig won't POST!

The biggest cause of No sound output with Windows 7 & Vista, that I have found, is the simple error of setting the default output device incorrectly.

Most, if not all, modern motherboards, will have both analogue and Digital output capability. This will be picked up as present by the driver even if no actual connections have been made.

Windows also sometimes gets things wrong when selecting the default output to use

It may be worthwhile checking your defaults, John. Right Click on the speaker select Playback devices, and check which has the Green tick, It does sound obvious but I know it can be easy to miss I wasted over an hour on a Vista system not long ago

Yes!
Well done Nigel and Jimbo. I thought I'd try the front headphone jack as you suggest Jimbo and got an enormously loud hum from my loudspeakers.
I quickly switched off the hi fi and then removed the jack and replaced it in the socket at the back,
This produced a popup box asking what audio device I had just plugged in and "line in" was ticked.
I changed this to headphones (no speaker tick box) and now I've got great sound!
This is amazing. With the help of you guys I've managed to built my first pc from (almost) scratch. Considering I'd never used or done anything with a pc until 2004, when I was given one for my photography, I feel dead pleased with myself and the friends I've got on this forum

Well done John

The bad news is of course, that now you are likely to be hooked

This evening may be a good time to uncork that bottle marked "For a special occasion", your first build is a special time

I've been following this thread...didn't feel like I could be much help though. Glad to see you got it going John. Nothing like the first time you get your first build up and running. Congrats!
