Nice. Audio drivers seem to be ok.
Now, restart, go to BIOS/Advanced and set onboard audio to OFF or Disabled (depending on BIOS options).
Log into Windows and see if anything changes. With little chance, this may help.
BTW, when you play music with Windows Media Player, does it report any errors, crash, or everything is OK except that there's no sound from speakers?
My next steps would be:
1. Right-click on Windows system disk (most probably it would be C:\) and click on Disk Cleanup... follow the procedure. Remove all files you don't need, especially temp.
2. Install Intel drivers. Reboot.
3. While restarting, enter BIOS and set onboard Audio to ON/Enabled.
3. Install DirectX 9c. Reboot.

I can't seem to find onboard audio anywhere in bios, only onboard video. Maybe that's the problem?

Did you look everywhere in BIOS? There's usually a tab like "Advanced" where onboard stuff (video, USB, etc) is configured.

There's no advanced tab. I only found sound in 'Integrated devices (legacy select options)' and sound is on. I found onboard video buffer but on onboard audio in 'Integrated devices (legacy select options)' .

Ok, Sound option is exactly what is needed.
Try with it OFF and see if anything changes in playback. If not, set it back to ON and install Intel drivers, reboot, then install DirectX.
