realtek ac97 no sound,but shows its working

Knowing my luck,I have overlooked a setting,but either way my sound is not working,i recently installed win 7 build 7100,and my onboard sound card is not working,my sound properties and volume control shows it is working but there is no sound coming out,ive checked the volume and all the stuff that is usually overlooked and ive checked my drivers and they are up to date,i have a really good sound blaster sound card,when i put it in sound works great,but there is a problem with it because it causes my pc to restart every 30 minutes or so,thats why im tryin to use the built in card,here is what i can tell you about my system:

Try changing the jacks? A lot of computers have a jack in front of it and also behind it. Did you try both?

this computer only has the jacks in back,the pink,blue and green,i have tried them all,in the sound settings there is a page where you can select to change the "line in" to rear output and change the "mic in" to center output,i put a check in these boxes once and moved the jacks around,i did get sound from the line in,though it wasnt that good cause it was rear only,but now if i do that i get nothing.

Open the sound mixer and make sure that you have speakers selected as your main playback device... for some reason, the default setting is headphones...Good Luck..
