If I read your post correctly, you did at some point install drivers.
Before you run all over the place looking for more drivers here is
Something to check:
Open Sound and Audio Devices.
Volume tab, click on Advanced in Device Volume.
Play control should open.
Click on Options/Properties. Place a checkmark by everything, click OK.
Back to Options/Advanced Controls.
If under any of the categories, you see Advanced click on that, if a box opens that has
OTHER CONTROLS/1 Digital Output Only* check if it's unchecked. (if you see Advanced in the panel Volume Control, you won't need to check any other advanced settings.)
If it's unchecked, check it.
Open up a player, add a music file, do you now have sound? If you have to, plug the speakers into every port on the card and see if it works.
*it may have another number. If it does, check or uncheck it.
(this is for XP)
