I've tried almost everything, and I can't seem to get sound out besides static. I've made sure my volume is up on everything, to make sure I wouldn't be making a fool out of myself entirely just by being told "Uh sir...you need to turn UP the volume."

My speakers are Creative Sound Blaster SBS250, and I think my sound card is Realtek AC'97 Audio Controller, and my drivers are completely up to date

Have you tried another set of speakers, or possibly a headphone in order to see if the problem does lie with the speakers?

Realtex sounds like it could be the issue since it sounds familiar. I had the same issue but it was with my dads computer which he had XP Pro and it shut off at the most random times and then turn back on during a reboot.

Try a reboot.

Sorry for the late late reply, went camping not long after the post, the issue does in fact lie within the sound card, I plugged my speakers into my MP3 player and what did I find? SOUND!!

Well a couple of possibilities that I can think of... is it possible that the speakers are digital and the sound card is analog or vise versa? you may also have to configure your sound card to use the type of speakers you have. Since it is realtek I'd assume that the card is built in? if so check the motherboard, look at the can-like devices... are any bulging or leaking? If so you need a new motherboard.... If not maybe you either need to reinstall the drivers ( windows has been known to lose drivers for sound in the past ) or get a new sound card...
