Sound Problem

I have a recent problem where I have no sound in windows. The volume controls are all maxed in the Volume Control settings. Here are some more details:

I configured Intel Audio Studio to detect when I connect a new device to the output port in the back. When I then plug something in, it does detect it.

It also has the option to test the speakers, and when it does it reads the output as being there, but for some reason I never hear it.

Bottom line:

The plug in the back works. I have tried both headphones and stereo (cable) and neither produce sound.

There are no speakers or audio output on the computer, so I must have something plugged into the back for sound (small speakers, stereo, headphones, etc).

# SigmaTel is not a sound card manufacturer, we design and produce integrated circuits directly for manufacturers.
# Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to provide drivers to end-user's.
# All end-user technical support, including drivers, should be directed to the product manufacturer.
# If you are unsure of who manufactures the product you are seeking drivers for, please read the packaging and literature that accompanied your product.
# For Windows XP users, an out of the box driver is included with the operating system that supports the SigmaTel codecs.

If you do not know the manufacturer of your computer you can also look at the motherboard makers website for drivers for your sound.

In order to find the right drivers the computer make and model, or the motherboard make and model is needed.

I apologize for the post. After going through the problem for about six hours, I made the post. Shortly afterwards I noticed that for some reason the balance of my left and right speakers were turned to 0 in the speaker volume section.

Again, I am very sorry. Thank you for the assistance.
