No Audio at all and no playback audio

HI I have had Cubase for a while but I can’t seem to get any playback audio or any normal audio. I have done a lot of what YouTube and people I know who have got Cubase recommended but can’t still not working, any ideas?

tell us something about your system? o/s, interface???

I use a Windows 10 laptop and I am using Cubase elements 8

and also a Steinberg interface if I need to but if possible I would like to do it without an interface

For onboard audio try this:

Install ASIO4all driver and then select asio4all as the driver in Cubase device setup/VST Audio System.
Now open VST connections and make sure that in the outputs tab there is a stereo out on the left and it is assigned on the right to the correct outs.
