Why won't my audio play when I want it to?

Question

I have been trying to fix this for hours. I am at my wits end, you have to help me. 

Amongst other random problems, I haven't been able to hear my project when I click play, and I can't hear the drums when I tap on them. The demo project used to not sound, then it gave me a few errors, now I can hear it upon changing my driver mode to 32 bit. I also reinstalled Cakewalk and updated my computer, deleted the 5 hidden audio devices, etc. I need some help now, please, I've tried everything I found online!

System info:

Computer: Alienware Aurora R6

Windows: Windows 10 Home latest update

Audio interface: It's integrated, I put my headphones in the headphone port at the top of the computer. (don't know too much about this)

Driver Mode: Currently MME,  because it made my physical devices appear. I tried the other modes too, and not much changed.

Processor is Intel Core something, 8 gb ram, 64 bit

I'm not sure if this matters, but I have an AMD Radeon graphics card with the driver a few versions behind (on purpose, for gaming). I also have many random audio drivers, because I use VR on this PC. And this computer is known for having completely random and unconnected problems.

 

Edit: I've tried pretty much everything, at this point I have wasted so much time and inspiration on a program that my computer just won't tolerate. It's really a shame that Cakewalk refuses to work, because the Bandlab online mixer works but I want to do more than what it offers. Anyways thanks for the help guys I'm probably gonna have to use another DAW but it's fine.

Your going to need to give more system information for people to help. What audio interface are you using? What driver mode? What Version of Windows etc. Many times if you are just using the on board audio of your computer then using WASAPI exclusive or shared driver mode is the best bet.
