Question about Motherboards
Basic troubleshooting steps: If you have powered speakers, are they turned on? Are they plugged into the correct hole on the back of the computer (usually the green one).
In the accessories folder (in the start programs), then choosing entertainment and choosing volume control, is the little box that says "mute" checked? Is the volume set too low?
When you go into the control panel and choose sounds, are you able to play a sound, or is the little arrow that allows you to play the sound grayed out? If so, your sound drivers are missing or corrupt. Then your problem becomes "how do I get sound drivers for my computer?" If you ask this, be prepared to give us more information about your computer, the sound card, etc.

Tips for a great answer:
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
