All settings in the task bar checked muitiple times.

Tried playing audio with Foobar instead of VLC as usual but no change
Uninstallted and updated Realtech HD audio and Xonar Essence STX Sound Cards drivers - no go,
Also tried playing in Audacity but no go.
Also used the audio trouble shooter in the control panel but it doesent find anything wrong.
