What operating system do you have? Try uninstalling the sound card driver then reinstalling it.

Since your sound is Realtek I presume it is onboard sound and not a sound card. Open your BIOS and make sure you have selected onboard sound. You may also have to open the Realtek control panel and select your desired sound output configuration.
