    Check the blidingly obvious first -
    Check your speakers are connected to the Lime coloured socket and are on. Turn up the volume and check for a hum output when you hold the socket with your fingers.
    Go to Control Panel, Sound & Audio Devices and check the following:
    Check there is an active device listed next to the picture of the speaker.
    Check the volume is near max.
    Check that the whole thing has not been muted by accident.

    Yes...I've already checked all of that...it doesn't recognize any of the audio device drivers...therefore...no sound is coming out of speakers or headphones >.<

    No drivers = no working sound card. Could be that it has died. Either find the right drivers or get yourself a PCI sound card and try that.

    You need to find the maker of the board (if on board sound) or the card if a daughterboard. The trawl the net for the drivers for your OS.
