    can be caused by a number of things. More than likely you blew out your speakers or your pre-amp in your sound card. or something as simple as accidently turning the volume down.

    fuse

    if you are running a subwoofer then your fuze might have blown out.
    most subs have a built in fuse underneath a little plastic cap on the back,
    try popping that off and seeing if it is blown.
    the other thing is that your amp in the sub could have overheated.

    What sort of speakers are you using?

    Hello! In order to provide a good help, it's good to provide what kind of speakers are you using and what Sound card.
    The first thing I'll suggest you to do is to plug in a different set of speakers (at least some Headphones) to get rid of the basic. If new speakers work, you probably blown your speakers or maybe just the Fuse as somebody already suggest, but if the new spk doesn't work then your problem is inside your PC, could be Audio Card or a software related problem.
    Try that and keep us posted. GL :wave:

    Do you have a pair of 1/8 male connector stereo headphones (mp3 player type) Where your sound card is should be the same female connection where the speakers are connected. Plugin and see if you hear sound? If you do speakers are gone. If you don't then could be a driver issue with Windows. You'll need to download the latest driver from onboard or PCI card manufacturer.

    If you own a volt meter check to see if the dc power converter is working.

    Check to see if the sound card driver is working properly,
