But headphone jacks work so the onboard sound works. If I boot into either of my other 2 systems the sound works normally over the speakers.
I cannot for the life of me detect what is different from yesterday to today.
I have triple-checked connectrions, sound/speaker settings and all is as it should be.
This is my main Win 7 OS. Ideas?

Solved, it took 5 reboots for the Device Manager to decide the sound drivers weren't installed properly....reinstalled and now working perfectly.
I was dreading the thought of having to buy and then reconnect a speaker system at the back of my desk where I swear by now there must be new life forms evolving.
But then, silly me, if the sound was working in 2 out of 3 OS's, it had to be something simple...sure enough. But I wonder why Windows took so long to decide about that driver? Plus I wonder what effected it in that manner, something I guess I'll never know.
