There can be all sorts of different reasons for this. However, in case it helps, in one case I came across recently, the sound had been lost due to an accidental change in Bios settings. Restoring all Bios settings to their defaults cured the problem

Is the sound enabled in the BIOS?

Check in Control Panel/ Add, Remove Programs/ Windows Setup tab/ Multimedia.
Are all the Sound and Volume boxes ticked????

sound is enabled in BIOS and tried everything suggested but still no sound.

Are the speakers connected and, if they are powered speakers, is the power to them switched on.
Sounds basic but not impossible.

A few assumptions
1. Sound is not muted in Sounds and audio devices in control panel
2. PC speaker is not not muted as above

Given these assumptions go into Control Panel, Sounds and audio devices, select the sounds tab, select a sound and play it - does it play through speakers. If not and all connections are correct go into audio tab and confirm that it is not greyed out given that it is not, shove an audio CD into a cd drive - does WMP play it with all the flashing lights etc. If so but still no sound then either your drivers are wrong or you have a fault on the mobo. To prove this stick a PCI sound card in and see if your sound works. If so point made - most likely cause duff drivers.
