Hey there!:)

Maybe uninstall sound driver and try a default Microsoft effort and then try installing again?..... speakrs plugged in front panel or back IO pannel?

I have the speakers plugged into the back panel to onboard sound jack(green), i plugged in the HD audio plug into the motherboard instead of AV1 plug like i used on previous motherboard, is it possible that is the issue? and how do i do a default Microsoft effort after i uninstall drivers? im unformilier

If you uninstall the driver, when you restart... Microsoft should automatically install a default driver. The HD plugged in should be no issue but you could try removing it just to make sure...

Have you enabled the Onboard Sound in BIOS?

This is a stupid question but one that I have to ask. Are you speakers powered up?

My next door neighbour did this and he had me on the phone for nearly an hour trying to walk him through problem solving. In the end my daughter who was playing next door with his daughter asked why the wall switch was off? So simple did not even thing of it.
