In both XP and Vista you have to go into the control panel and select Sound and then select output device that you want to use to provide sound.
Check to be sure mute all is not checked. Right-click the sound icon in the systray, open mixer and verify that it is not.
It is best to use the rear panel jacks for your audio connections on most systems. There are numerous posts in this section of the forum on this very same subject.

You can either use the Windows Vista Business audio driver from your PC's support and driver page, or go to the device manager click on the multimedia audio controller device, click on the driver tab.
Click on update driver. Do the automatic search and be connected to the internet. Windows Update should download and install a driver for you.
