Check to make sure that onboard sound is enabled in the BIOS (del key after you boot up).. If it is still enabled, try uninstalling any previous drivers (when I say any, I mean any and all) for the sound card, and then use the original CD that came with the motherboard to install the audio drivers.

If the sound still isn't working at this point, it's more than likely an IRQ conflict or else the chip is actually dead. If this is the case, check to see if you can record with the microphone - if you can record with the mic, it may just be the output jack that's messed up.

Hopefully it's just the drivers though. Good luck!
