You don't say what you have tried but these are the first things to check.

Have you run the audio troubleshooter?
Start - type in audio troubleshooter - find find and fix audio playback problems- next.

Do you have any headphones plugged in?

Try looking in Device Manager to see if drivers need to be updated.. Start - type in Device Manager - under sound video and game controllers select your sound card, open it, select driver tab, update driver.

If this doesn't work in Device Manager uninstall your audio driver, restart and windows should automatically attempt to reinstall the driver.

If your audio device is a USB or HDMI Connection have you set that device as default?

Start - type Sound - select sound from results - On Playback select a device and choose default.

I'll just add to that.

Are your Speakers plugged in to the Mains and PC. Also, have you turned them on.

Most of this type of problem have a simple solution

  1. Go to device manager/ sounds and mic tabs then right click and uninstall drivers even if they dont have a yellow triangle on them. Windows will reinstall them on restart. 2. In sounds/playback tab right click and disable the realtek digital output. just above the icon when using SPEAKERS you should see a green tick in the speaker icon , right click if missing. When you plug in your headphones the icon will go out and if you scroll down you will see a new one for headphones . when you swap between speakers and phones it takes a few seconds to find new device. 3. check properties tab on both headphones .... green jack highlighted and microphone pink jack.
    finally at bottom right corner where the speaker icon is change the tab to realtec high def audio , i have my volume at 50% because at 100% when I used headphones on level 2 so 50% makes headphone adjustment more user friendly.
