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

If the playback device is built into the motherboard, the device may not be enabled in the BIOS. Check your BIOS settings. If your sound device is disabled, enable it and repeat this procedure.
If you do not have built-in sound on your motherboard you will need a sound card installed in an expansion slot on the motherboard. This card may not be present. If there is no sound card, install one and then repeat this procedure.
If you do have a playback device installed and enabled and either you have an error indication, drivers are not installed, or device manager reccommends a driver update, you will have to download drivers from either the motherboard or sound card manufacturer's web site. Also, if the drivers are installed and you no have no error messages, but you do not hear sound when you click the black triangle, you may have a hardware problem on your motherboard or sound card.. At this point, you may want to get some help from a qualified PC technician.
