An installed sound card should work.

How do you get sound, monitor speakers or external speakers?

Tried these?

its a pci card and its not giving sound either,

its via head set and speakers and they brand new speakers, worked ok on my pc

It's not muted in the sound settings in your Operating System?

If both the onboard and a PCI card aren't giving sound through two output devices I'd strongly suspect it's just a setting somewhere.
