If you have another set of speakers or headphones, you might try plugging them in to make sure it's not the speakers.

Next step would be to uninstall & reinstall the driver for your sound hardware. I assume you're using some version of Windows; go to Control Panel / System / Device Manager, find the sound driver, and delete it. Then restart Windows, and it should find & reinstall the driver.

I had a problem when I installed Skype on my computer. Each time I used Skype it would work properly but then the output to the speakers would be off when I wanted to use them. I had to go into the control panel, sound settings, and change it back to the speakers each time. Check your control panel sound settings.

You have not accidentally hit the Mute button on the keyboard? I have done this and thought MY speakers were not working went through many tests until it dawned on me to try the mute key~! Yup I had pushed the mute button stopping anything from coming out of the speakers. lol

Hey.

Is your audio built into your motherboard or do you have a plug in audio card?

Did you reinstall your sound driver as suggested by backwoodsman7? Many times the generic drivers built into windows don't work. If your sound is on the mobo, you sometimes get a disc with drivers from the computer mfg. or you can find the id and board mfg on the mobo and go to the site of who mfg. the board and download the driver.

If windows xp, toolbar on the bottom will have a little speaker icon. Right click on that will let you access some settings. Double left click will let you access other settings.
