If you’re having trouble hearing sound from your computer, use the Windows Audio Troubleshooter to help you detect and fix any problems. It examines your volume controls, sound card or driver, and speakers or headphones for common issues. To initiate the troubleshooter, take these steps:

If your computer still won’t produce audible sounds, there are a few basic measures you may take to try to fix the problem. This does not include sound issues caused by third-party audio software or hardware, such as surround sound speaker systems. If you have speakers, make sure they’re switched on and plugged into a working power source. Connecting headphones is the simplest method. If the headphone function but the internal speakers don’t, the computer may believe the headphones are plugged in when they aren’t. Most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers when you plug in headphones. Connect and unplug the headphones several times. This will displace any dust that has accumulated in the headphone port.
