Help! Sound card no longer giving any sound!

    I have a VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller (WMD) that suddenly stopped
    working today on my Windows XP machine. I have not recently installed any
    new windows updates or made any other software changes. The card stopped
    working after I hooked up my new speakers to my motherboard. When I check
    the device manager it says "This device is working properly." I tried
    uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers but when I went to reinstall them I
    received the error message "There was a problem installing this hardware:
    Vinyl AC97 Codec Combo Drive. This device cannot start (code 10)." After
    receiving that error I tried using System Restore to go back to an earlier
    date but that did not correct the issue either. I installed a soundblaster
    sound card thinking that the card was the issue. The card installed
    properly but I still had no sound. Any suggestions?
