It doesn't normally say in or out unless its in the mainboard manual !  
Depending upon the switches it seems it could be either.  But yes I 
would unmute it regardless.

If its any help I did find that unmuting the sound in one place caused 
it to change to mute somewhere else.  After that it gets very 
confusing because of the, in my case three, number of sound devices 
that it seems to find and they all appear to have some interaction 
even though you can select different settings for each one.

I played about for ages trying to get sound to work.  When it did I 
left it alone.  It was much more simple on my old machine, only one 
device on there.
