Hi there, what is the make of your soundcard? Can you post a screen shot of Device Manage and with Sound, Video and Game controllers expanded please if possible! Sounds like you need to get manufacture drivers! :)

I don't know if this is your problem but: I have had this problem with a computer before and it drove me nuts, until I figured it out. The jack for headphones/speakers on the computer is ONLY active, if you plug in your headphones/speakers BEFORE the computer is POWERED on. Try shutting down your computer completely. Plugging in your headphones/speakers then powering the computer on.

I hate that some manufactures build computers like this. UGH!
