Hi, Ok so is your sound a built in part of your motherboard or do you have a separate sound card.

Have you been able to check the device in your device manager?

To do this go to "Start" then to "Control Panel" or "Settings" then to "System". A window will pop up with several "Tabs" across the top. Choose "Hardware" and at the top of that page click on "Device Manager" scroll down till you see where it lists your "Sound" devices. If you have a yellow alert symbol or a red exclamation symbol then there is either a clash or an error with the driver for the sound device.
If you have the installation disc you can re-install the driver which should fix your problem.

If there are no errors in the "Device Manager" then there would be some other problem, possibly the device has failed, if it is on board (built in to the motherboard) then the easiest sloution is to buy a separate sound card and install that. If it is already a card then replacing it is still the option.

Another thing, and this may sound silly but is often the case, have you checked that nobody has accidentally "Muted" your sound? Down in the bottom righthand corner of your screen you should have a small speaker icon. If you click it, it will open your volume control which at the bottom has a mute box that should be unticked. If it is ticked then all your sound will be muted.

Another silly things also is to check your speakers make sure all cables and power is ok and that the volume is up and not down.
Please don't be offended I have to ask the dumb questions to eliminate what might be a very simple problem and you would be amazed what some people do by accident.

Please let me know how you go and if I can be of further assistance at all. If you do not have a driver then that is usually not a problem we can find them we just need to know what type of device you have ok.

No sound coming from my computer but videos play

Check the volume setting and also check that to mute box has been unticked.
Also to test the audio connect a stereo headphone to the headphone outlet on the laptop to see if you can hear sounds.
If you don't hear any sounds - return it, it will be still under warranty.

No sound from my logitech z4 subwoofer

Is there sound coming from the 2 speakers?

Subwoofers are designed to only play bass, you shouldnt hear much acoustic sound coming from it at all.

The best way to test that is to play a song with a good amount of low bass, see if you hear it coming from the woofer, or can you feel the woofer vibrate?

If there is a hole in the side of the woofer box, when you are playing the song is there any air coming out of that hole to the bass line beat?

I dont know how you have your wiring set up, but if it still isnt working please check to make sure that you have the wiring plugged in properly.

If there is anything else I can do to help please let me know. I hope this fixes your problem.
