Try Control panel>Sounds and audio devices>Audio>advanced make sure you have the correct device selected (this depends on your speaker set up) and you can do some tests here

Silly question, I know, but are you sure you have your speakers plugged into the correct audio port?

Also check the volume level by going into control panel/sound, speech audio devices/adjust system volume, and check the various levels and see if some are turned right down, if they are adjust them till over half way.
