Internal speaker not working
There's an actual internal speaker, and there's the audio out jack, either at the back or front, or sometimes at both locations.
It seems to me you're getting no sound from the audio out jack, where you normally connect powered, amplified speakers. Have you checked the volume setting on these speakers? Turn the volume up as high as it goes.
Check in the system tray area (bottom right corner of your desktop, in Windows) for an icon that looks like a speaker cone.
If found, and if you hover your mouse over the icon, in Vista, it should display your audio card name and model. If you click over the icon, the volume bar shows up. Slide the volume up as high at it goes and try playing some music from your PC. Does that satisfy you?
If not, right click over the icon and you may be shown a menu of different options to do with your audio system. There should be one for a "mixer", where you would turn different things on or off, or where you can boost your volume or microphone sound level.
If there's no icon in the system tray, try going to the Device Manager, from the Control Panel window, and see whether your audio component is enabled and working Ok. A yellow icon, or red, over any component is an indication that there's a problem with the device. If that's the case, try right clicking on the device and uninstall it from the ensuing menu.
Next, reboot your machine and Windows should reinstall it with the proper drivers and your Pc should be back to normal.
