What operating system do you have?
Try going to control panel/sounds,speech & audio devices/(click) then sound and audio devices/(click). You will be in the properties box.Check each setting under each tab for "mute tick", speaker volumes and sound default devices. All default device: have drop down boxes. Drop down & make sure your sound device used in your machine is selected.
Also don't forget to go to device manager (logo + pause) hardware tab/device manager & make sure you don't have any exclamation marks or red x's next to your sound devices. These are basics to rule out before stepping towards hardware problems.

The sound has forsaken you because you use it unsubtly.  Take all-caps off and say whether you had sound before, whether installing the audio drivers worked, whether your speakers work when connected to a stereo output, whether your mixer on the computer is configured to do Optical-Out only; go listen to some piano auditions at various levels of ability, down at music academies and universities; play some Van Gelis through some homemade distortion filters; run some mashup software on MIDI files and crank that through midi boxes until you can get something listenable.  Break it down.

Just to make sure desktops almost never have built in speakers.
1. Check that your speakers work. Try them with an MP3 player or other device to make sure they work.
2. Check that the speaker is plugged in the right socket. Play something on computer and switch around the plug.
3. In windows press START->Control Panel->System->Device manager.
Right click on Sound device and write down the make (Company and a model number).
4a. Google their website and go to support->downloads/drivers and download the appropriate driver.
4b. If its an INTEL sound device you might have to look up the motherboard as it might be bundled with the motherboard driver.
