OS? Onboard sound or sound card?

Right click on Speaker icon in task bar (or go to Control Panel Sounds), Select Playback Devices, make sure that there is a green tick (default device) against Speakers (may also say Realtek or similar audio driver) if no green tick then highlight speakers and click on Make Default. Click OK and exit.
