    I have had a similar board for years and still love it, even if it is mothballed at the moment. I recommend this thread on these special hybrid AGP-PCIe boards on Anandtech. It is a long thread now, but you should first check to see if you have the best BIOS (look for a modded BIOS from in the thread; these are better and newer than those from ASRock on this particular series). After updating, make sure you are using the best BIOS settings. You then need to recheck Windows to see if all of the proper and latest drivers are installed, which are not those found on the ASRock site, but on each component manufacturer site. If you want to detect for the latest drivers, most tools you will find on the net are full of viruses or are not free; I recommend at least getting a read-out from this tool, driver-identifier, which checks your system and opens a browser page with a list. You can use the drivers on the site directly, or use the list to see which things need updating and go directly to the source to update each. Once this is all done, if the speakers are not working properly, you either have a bad Windows install and should do a fresh one, or simply the speakers are not connected properly. I'd be surprised if the Realtek sound chip has gone bad, but if so, there is always the option of a PCI sound card.

    The thread on Anandtech is long and full of data. Well worth reading.

    Prepare a simple headphone (e.g. those packed with mobile phones), connect it to green, black and orange (not pink!) sockets one by one, and each time press the play button as you shown in post #6 area 2. If during playback you hear something from left/right, that channel is working well and the problem is from your speaker system or its cables/connectors; Else, open windows volume control, check that no device (rear, center, side,...) is muted or at zero level. (That was very nice in windows xp but is somehow complicated in vista family). You can also use Realtek's own mixer.
