try going here... How to identify your Intel® chipset...after you know EXACTLY which chipset you have click on support...drivers and downloads... and get your chipset drivers...install them...
borrow a headset (THAT YOU KNOW WORKS)...that has the light green plugin ...plug it into the back of the case in the light green socket.....put on the headset...
do you hear any sounds when you boot up or shutdown..

Yes install from Windows Explorer

Please also follow Happyrock's suggestion. He is very knowledgeable :) and I trust his suggestions completely.

Nothing has changed.

I don't have a headset but I know my speakers are working. Why? Because sometime this morning I started getting a sound out of MY speakers when I get an incoming mail. It is not the sound I select for email and I can't control it. Volume or anything else but it does make a sound.

I am not going to work right until I get the speaker icon (not the orange one) in my taskbar and control panel recognizes that I have audio.

when you plug in a headset the onboard chip detects it and switches so the headset will work instead of your speakers...I have done this many times to find the headset works just fine...then we know its the audio chip on the mobo thats causing the problem...
anyway good luck with your problem...
