I would go to device manager and see if your sound card is having issues.  it may be disabled or it may need the driver reinstalled.

the distributor of the sound card would have the drive in an exe file to make things easy.  If you have a dell or HP etc computer go to their downloads and drivers and find your computer and they will be marked and have an easy install.

Common issue with this sort of thing is that the speakers or headset is simply plugged into the wrong socket. In you're typical setup, the socket for your regular headphones or speakers is colour coded with a light green outline.

The other thing is if you go into the Sounds applet in the Control Panel and look at the playback devices, check which device sound it being output from.

My sound procedure checklist :
-in device manager, check if the card is installed without errors
-if needed, install / uninstall the  UAA HD Audio Bus driver
-start>run>services.msc  and check if the Windows Audio service started and set to automatic?
        then, from Device Manager>view   click "show hidden devices" , now  right click your sound devices, and select Uninstall.
        Reboot, and cancel the wizard to reinstall
        Install your latest drivers, and reboot to complete the install......
-in the audio and sound applet>audio tab check if the sound card is selected
-in the volume section, check if the sound is turned up enough, and NOT muted
-in the audio and sound applet>sounds tab select the start windows sound, and check if you can play it
-check if the speakers are connected to the proper sound output (green)
-test the speakers on another PC
