OH DEAR ME! Ive had the same problem with my p6x58d-e and did everything you've mentioned (drivers etc, reinstalling windows 7 ultimate) but I get no sound and I have the greyed 'not plugged in' issue as youve have. I tried everything apart from 'randomly messing with my Bios Audio settings.... I finally gave up and got a refund for this mobo which I otherwise loved, if the sound was no problematic....
I am actually going to buy it again these days.
However, can you please let us know if you can remember what exactly did you randomly change? Did you disable the onboard sound and then enabled it again or something? I cant think of many other things that one can mess with if bios audio is concerned....
