    Is there anyone around who is good with sound problems on PC's? I have tried to get my speakers to work for the past 3 hours, I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, I've set the driver to the Microsoft default. I've tried switching jacks on the back to no avail. Computer diagnostics say everything is fine, but obviously not. Nothing works.

    I can hear out of my gaming headset just fine. There's a place called "Wit's End" that I keep arriving at. They're going to have me arrested for loitering if I keep coming back...

    Just sayin, regardless of OS...if you hear through your headphones then your sound drivers are working.
    It is something else.
    Open your volume mixer and see if the speaker settings are on mute or disabled.
    Otherwise, it is likely the jack coming off the motherboard is fried.

    External speakers? If they are true story, I spent two hours trying to figure out why our daughter's suddenly stopped working....ended up she had hit the power button on the cord with her foot.

    If you're getting sound out of your headphones then that generally indicates that everything is installed properly - could you have accidentally muted your sound/volume?

    Nope, checked everything, reinstalled the IDT codec twice. Then I simply deleted the driver and tried Realtek instead. When I restarted, Windows replaced it with the IDT codec.

    Have you tried plugging the speakers into a different computer to narrow down whether it's a speaker issue or connection issue? It's strange that you can get sound out of the headphones which would tend to indicate that the problem isn't the jack.

    They're not accidentally plugged into the microphone jack?
