OS? Check that sound is not muted. Check all cables and if powered speakers that power is on. PC connected to TV or something else?

sound at speaker was switched off vigorously could this have shorted the sound card system ?

"switched off vigorously" - Depends by what actually happened. Were the cables pulled forcibly out of the pc or off the speaker. Best guess is the switching off vigorously has damaged the speakers. Can you try another set?

by vigorously, I mean the speaker switch which is a push in on, pop out off, was flipped so to speak, too hard.....this has happened to me once before ?

hard to describe sorry, dont get any sound through my PC without, speakers switched on, ie PC s own sound.

Possibly damaged speakers.

I assume:

That the Speakers are plugged into the Mains and that the Mains are switched on, but, when you depress the Speaker's Power Switch, they do not turn on. Is that correct?

That the Speaker's Power Switch is a Button.

Worth a try: Depress the Button and try to rotate it, or waggle it from side to side.

Unfortunately for you, the profit margin on speakers is so low that repair is likely to be uneconomic unless you do it yourself.

Now maybe the time to upgrade!
