Just to let you know, you posted a question for your laptop in the "Barcode Scanners" section. Be more careful next time.
If the sound stopped working recently, then it's possible virus/malware is the problem. Run scans to test for this with good (and free!) software like Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes. I use these programs on my own computers and clients' computers that I fix. If it turns out not to be viruses/malware then you might need to re-install the audio driver for your laptop. You didn't specify the model of your laptop, so I can't tell you exactly which site to find it out. However, I can lead you in the general direction. Go to your laptop manufacturer's website. Enter their support/drivers/downloads section. Enter the model of your laptop. Enter the version of Windows on your laptop. You will now be able to see the drivers for the laptop, including the audio drivers. Download and install them, and reboot. You should have sound now.
If it still doesn't work after this, then possibly the internal speakers have failed. You can test this further by hooking up a known good set of external speakers or headphones to the laptop and seeing if sound comes out of those.
