Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Any computer manufactured within the last 5 or so years should come with a sound card by default, but check the back of your computer, verify that you have a sound card (audio output device) installed, check for a light green audio jack. If none, you likely have no sound card installed.
Assuming you do have a sound card installed, right click on My Computer and choose Manage, select Device Manager and see if there are any items with either an X or a yellow exclamation mark. If you do have either, you may only need to install the software (free) for the audio output device. To know which software you will need, it will be best to visit the website of the manufacturer you purchased it from, enter your model information in their support page and proceed from there.
If you don't know who made your computer, then it will be a lengthier, but not impossible, process to figure out what software you need to install.

What type of computer is this?
If you are building this unit yourself, and your motherboard does not come with audio. Then you must purchase a Sound card. I think Soundblaster is a good choice...Try clicking on sys information and see if you system has Audio. if so then check and make sure you have plugged your speakers in too the right output port, look at the back of the computer its usually the green jack.
