Was the sound working beforehand?
First off try to find a continual source for sound like a music file or movie etc...something that can play while you tweak settings.
As the sound is playing(Make sure the program that is playing the sound file has the volume up, check your Advanced Volume settings by double-clicking your sound icon in the bottom right corner of your screen by your clock. Make sure the sound is set and none of the channels are muted. Next check the volume knob on your speaker and make sure that is turned up. Lastly make sure the speakers are securely connected to the PC in back (follow the cord). The cords are usually color coded, make sure it's plugged into the correct hole.

Things You'll Need:
Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings
Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.
Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, un-check them. If this doesn't work, read on.
Perform a System Restore If Necessary
If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."
Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."
Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.
Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.
Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.
Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery Cd's that came with your Windows XP system.
Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.
