speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side
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 with no dust as dust causes static electricity
clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line or use a can of compressed air specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
dust causes static to build up in a computer
if its a desktop swap the speakers around if one still does not work its either a faulty speaker or the speaker connection
hope this helps
