Hi there.
On the computer look at the bottom right hand side of the screen, click on the speaker icon and see if there are any sound devices installed on the computer. If there is make sure it not on mute and that its at 100%, then play a tune.
plug the main speaker jack into the green port at the back of the computer, if its not the green one try the others too.
If there is no driver installed post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
Sound like you do. I assume that you have check to sound Icon in control panel. The driver show up being loaded if not then you need to reload your sound driver. make sure your loading the right driver.
