m using AC97 sound in my mobo

When you said you turned "the sound volume to the max" are you referring to the "Control Panel"?

If not, then double-click on the "speaker" icon in the System Tray (I am assuming you are running some sort of Windoze O/S), and try turning each of the controls to the "max". Also, have a look around on your PC for a separate mechanical control.

Now inspect your headset. Is it plugged all the way in (and in the proper jack)? Are there volume controls on the headset?

Try the headset in a "walkman". Do they work there?

Try another headset, or a pair of "computer speakers".

This should help you.

Are you using amplified speakers, or attempting to use headphones.

If you are using headphones, most on-board sound systems, and nearly all "new" sound cards do not have the power to drive unamplified speakers, or even headphones anymore. You need an amplifier.

If you are using amplified speakers, check that you have the driver installed correctly.
Right click on the My Computer Icon and select properties.
Then click on the device manager tab,
scroll down to the mutlifunction device and/or sound and game controllers.
Make sure that the sound driver is installed, and that there are no "?" or "!" marks by the audio devices.
If you do not have the drivers, go to the web site of the MB or chipset mfg, and download the correct version for your OS.

That said, there are numerous other "events" that can get in the way of the sound functioning. I discovered that ACPI was making invalid requests on one of my systems, causing the sound card to lock up.

Unmute the volume control in the system try by double clicking and unticking the boxes?

Remove the AC97 Audio Controller in the System Properties Window ( Sound and Game Controller) then refresh he window... worked once for me.
