Sound does not work - PC Desktops

Answers :

If your desktop has external speakers, check the cables and verify that\015\012everything is plugged in correctly. If everything is plugged in, make\015\012sure that the speakers aren't muted. You can check this by\015\012double-clicking the Windows Volume icon in the task tray in the lower\015\012right-hand side of the screen.
\015\012If the sound still is not working, go to the Control Panel and\015\012double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices icon. In the Advanced tab,\015\012verify that there is a device selected for sound (e.g. Realtek AC97\015\012Audio). If no device is selected, attempt to select one.
\015\012If no device is available, it's likely that your speaker drivers are either incorrect or have somehow been uninstalled.
\015\012To check this, click Start, right-click My Computer and select Manage.
\015\012In the computer management console, select Device Manager. Expand\015\012"Sound, video and game controllers". Look for something similar to\015\012Realtek AC97 Audio or Soundblaster Audigy - just something to indicate\015\012the the machine has a controller for sound.
\015\012If nothing is listed to indicate the machine has a driver for sound,\015\012you might be able to restore sound by downloading the latest driver\015\012from the manufacturer's support site.
\015\012If there is a controller for sound and the driver is up-to-date, try\015\012uninstalling the device by right-clicking and selecting "Uninstall".\015\012Then restart your machine to let Windows rediscover the device and\015\012install the proper driver.
\015\012Hope this helps! Good luck!
Like any good car, you only get there with a good driver. Computers are the same way. The driver is how the sound component works on the computer. Go to the manufacturer of the computer or sound card and get the latest driver. Even if you have the latest, reinstalling will help. They can be corrupt with software updates to the OS. In addition do simple checks. Make sure the cable is plugged in completely in all ports. Check to make sure the mute function is not active in the sound control panel. Also the speakers are 99.9% powered so make sure they are on. The power transformer may be bad or not plugged in all the way.

And this is a little weird, but I just tried unplugging the cord from my computer, just a little, and the left speaker started to work but not the right and when I plugged it back in
