Have you tried both front and back ports

Have you tried a headphone. 

Please open task manager > start up > WaveMaxx audio should be enabled. 

If not, enable it and reboot

Now when you plug in your speakers you should be getting a popup



Found out from Dell I had set up the wrong port. I moved the wires from the old dell desktop to the new, but it appears the new one uses different ports. I thought I had used tje same ports on the new as the old.

@JimR45 Check Control Panel / Sound and in the Sound window, click on the Playback tab and make sure your sound card is set to default.

You may also check whether Waves Maxx is loaded at startup (starting afterwards won't help). My front audio jack didn't work unless it was.
