Sound gone no obvious reason

Windows 7x32;Asus P5E; Intel Q6600 CPU; 4GbRam; Radeon 6870 Accelerator; experienced (my fifth self-built system).

Just installed a new graphics card. All went well with that; but, oddly, there is now no sound. Speakers are plugged in correctly (on; volume is up & not muted). Device Manager reports all is well. (Just to be sure I reinstalled all [four] audio drivers. Windows troubleshooter finds nothing. The only thing I can think of is that I somehow damaged the cable/plug during the upset, but this is unlikely. So, before I go out and waste money on new speakers I thought to ask if anyone can think of anything I might have overlooked.

Check in playback devices that the speakers are set to default.

I doubt if it is the speakers, can you test the on something else.

Fist try a set of headphones in the speaker socket

try changing the default sound system to something else test then change it back to your sound card then retest.

Turns out there is a fault in the speaker lead, in the usual place where these things occur, right where the lead meets the jack on the speaker feed. Thanks, everyone, for your input.
