Sound output issue

Heya guys, I'm new to this forum so please excuse if I miss something, just inform me and i will cooperate as best I comprehend the question..

Anyway, i have an issue with my sound output, the audio device is detected in device manager, I've updated and scanned for hardware changes and alternated between my OS' (win 7 home premium 64-bit) driver and my motherboard's (model number: DG43RK) driver (which is realtek HD audio driver) and I keep having no sound output from speakers / headphones in front or back audio jacks hower on the mixer the sound levels are rising

I am currently using the motherboard's onboard sound input. any assistance would be much appreciated.

Clarification Request

Check in the audio setup what "port" output has been selected or play with it. Plus, verify you are on the right port. This can be a problem for all the audio selections apparent in newer systems. If you can see audio levels working, then it has to be some setup or improper config to include any enable/disable setting. You also offered no system specs or even a PC model#, these do help, so offer these in the future on any other queries.

Something i should have seen sooner

Thanks for the input willy, i will remember to do so in the future.

i did however find the problem with my sound output, it seemed to have been the processor overheating, and when i saw this i felt like an idiot that it wasnt the first thing i checked, at least now i fully understand the amount of issues overheating can cause
