Did you install the sound driver? Is the onboard audio enabled in the BIOS?

Just in case, are the drivers appearing correctly installed in the device manager ?

I would try desinstalling, re-installing the latest drivers from gigabyte's website.

Did you check the jumpers for "Front Audio" if you not using Front Audio" the jumpers must be on the correct pin out and like wise removed for using the front audio. Check your manual for the correct config.
Here is a kicker, once there was a jumper that had no metal in it so it wasen't jumping and things werent working! Well more than once actually, I've poersonally see it 2 times so far!

I once had a prob using a cheap case with front audio. The return line from the front port back to the MB was crap and I wasn't getting sound in one channel. Make sure it's nothing like that. Use jumpers to disable the front audio connections. Also, make sure it's turned on in the BIOS.

Double check your jumpers are you wiring to the motherboard. Even before this I'd check your drivers and go for the most up to date drivers for your sound device.

If not it could also be your actual chip in the front case sound. Mine in my acrylic was messed. My Left and right channel were switched with this case when I used front sound. Really annoying so I ended up re-wiring without the front sound

Are you playing the sound from a CD? If so, don't forget the audio cable from the drive to the mobo.
