Okay, let's try this approach. Go to the Control Panel, which should appear on the taskbar. Open Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure that the box for "show volume on taskbar" is checked and that "mute" is NOT checked. (If your computer has a key to mute the sound, you should check to be sure that key has not been pressed as well.)  As you look at that screen, what level is the volume set on? Can you adjust the volume on the speakers?

Of course, there's always the step most of us try last: we try to read the guide book that comes with the computer. Often that step just frustrates me! Good luck!
