Question about PC Desktops
Right click on the MY Computer listing on the start column. Now click on properties, then click on the hardware tab. Now click on the Device Manager button. In this list under Sound there my be a yellow sign w an exclamation point in it. click on this sign and read to see if the device is working. If not, then try to reinstall the driver as the message says. Reboot the machine. if the problem goes away so be it. If not, then the problem is more serious and will probably tech work. Check back with the Tech and see if all he did was reinstall the driver. If yes, then it seems that a recent program installed or something else has messed with or is still messing with the driver or it's the wrong driver period. Also the sound card section of the MB could be defective. If all else fails, all I can recommend is you try to reinstall windows or have the tech fix it again and get a serious answer to what the problem was and how he fixed it. He should have told you in the first place.

Tips for a great answer:
Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps
