Default Hardware Problem No sound

Hi Im new to these forums and after searching the web for answers I cannot come accross one that will solve my current delima, my problem being I have no sound.

Ive got reason to believe that it is a hardware problem as my speakers work fine with other devices such as MP3 players and so on, I have onboard sound and im uptodate with my drivers. It may be a fault with my motherboard but im not sure and Im just trying to narrow down what it is thats causing this issue.

Ive checked the device manager and It tells me that there is no problem with my sound devices, Ive checked cables inside PC to make sure they are all connected, aswell as cables on the outside of my PC.

In my sound > playback devices window it says that my speakers are not plugged in when they are, Ive tried everything i can think off but with no hope. When i click on the sound icon on the taskbar the green bar even moves up and do to show that there is sound avaliable but there is no sound coming out.

I just dont understand what exactly is going on, the problem came up yesterday after swapping round some ram, but I dont see how this could have affected my sound, maybe I disloged a cabble slightly or something, but I have gone in and made sure that everything is securely plugged into where it should be.

I hope someone out there can help me. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks

Need to no more about my system just ask.

If it's onboard, there are no wires.

Did this work before? What have you installed since? What board do you have?

Im not 100% sure what my board is but i think Its an Asus ill have to find out for you, and well Yea my sound was working fine until i changed my ram around and the only thing I have installed is drivers from the Realtek site which didnt help at all.

Im thinking that maybe when swapping the ram around i might have screwed up my sound or something but I have no Idea what the problem is.

Opps ill keep a note of that for future posts cheers.
