    It would help if I knew what computer we are talking about, as this is the only way to find out if there, at all, is a sound card in it. :-)
    And if, then find the driver for you

Click Start > Settings (classic menu) or directly to > Control Panel > System,

Click the Hardware tab at the top. Click Device Manager and find the category "Sound, video and game controllers".

Click the plus sign and see if there is an Audio controller listed or anything with a yellow highlighted exclamation point in front or a red X.

Click any item mentioned in the previous paragraph and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Click Okay or yes to removing the device. Remove all items one by one that meet the criteria in the previous paragraph.

Click okay to close out of Device manager then reboot the computer.

If Device manager has no audio devices listed at all, and you are sure you actually have an audio connection on the back of your computer (sound card or integrated sound), then it is likely the sound card or circuitry has failed.

Let me know if this works or if you have additional information/questions for me.
