If your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers. Click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers make sure you have selected the (appropriate speakers) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the correct speaker settings. Click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it.
Well, either your windows volume (normal volume control in the bottom right corner of your screen) or whatever program you're running to produce the sound (iTunes, Media Player, etc.) is probably turned down low. Check that first, otherwise, your speakers are probably dying, and need to be replaced (quite the fix).
I hope this helps!
Does the laptop play CDs?
If so then when you start a DVD and before you play the movie, go into the audio setting and configure the speakers for laptop stereo speakers.
If you cannot hear music from the CD then check :-
1. The audio settings, volume not set to minimum and mute is not ticked (enabled)
2. Device manager - sound device is enabled and working, if not re-install the sound driver.
Does the laptop have a built-in microphone? Make sure the microphone output is turned off (muted) in the playback volume settings. It could be at just the right setting to be causing a decaying feedback. Also, many sound softwares today have other features for echo, reverb, etc. My Creative one has a vast selection of simulated reverb like Concert Hall, Bathroom, Basement, Cathedral, even one call Haunted Cavern. Look for these in the advanced options section of your sound controls. These normally aren't a part of the standard windows volume control. There should be a shortcut similar to Sound Mixer to access them, if you have it.
I can only suggest checking via your Control Panel > System > Hardware. Making sure the drivers are still installed. Also worth noting - Have you installed anything else recently - that may have stopped it... Also, try the help wizard via you help and support pages on your O/S
