I installed realtek drivers, but still no sound

i installed windows 7 and after that everything works fine except that there is no sound. the device manager says that the HD audio is working fine. the driver is the updated version.

I don't know what to do. both the internal speakers and the headphones are not working. but the symbol for audio says it is working just fine.
