Audio in editor/ingame has never worked on any version of UE4
From the very beginning when i first got UE4, at version 4.0.2 up until now at 4.7.1, sound in the editor/ingame has never worked. My speakers are 5.1 surround sound, editor sounds are enabled, UE4 does not show up in my volume mixer and the WindowsEngine.ini in UE4\Engine\Config\Windows\ is there. I have gone through all troubleshooting steps for similar problems but have not been able to get audio to work.
Here are my specs from dxdiag
If there is any additional troubleshooting steps you would like for me to take, or any additional information you need, please tell me.

Before you try re-installing Windows completely, we should explore a couple more options. I usually do not suggest a full Windows re-install until it is the last resort.
I noticed you have a 'Realtek High Definition Audio' device set as your default playback device. Open your 'Realtek HD Audio Manager' and try changing the 'Speaker Configuration' to 'Stereo' and your Default Format to 24 bits 48,000 Hz, Studio Qualtiy. Also try checking the 'Virtual Surround' option if available.

The red boxes surround the options I mentioned.
Hopefully your driver application looks similar, but use this image as a reference to where these options can be found and changed on your own computer.
Let me know if any of this helped resolve your issue, or if you need some more help.
