The only possiblities I think are that you are having trouble with your sound card, your speakers, or the drivers.
I hate to say this, but working in IT you learn to do it always....start with the simple stuff. Make sure all of your connections are good - plugs are connected to back of speakers, plugs connected to back of PC, etc.
Somewhere, depending on what speakers you have, you'll usually find a small LED light telling you that the speakers have power and are turned on. Make sure this LED is illuminated.
Move some of the wires around, it is possible you have a short in one of the cables. Turn on a music CD or something and jiggle the cables around a bit and see what happens. Maybe you bumped a shorted wire and that killed your audio.
Make sure the volume settings within Windows are still turned on and up.
If none of that works for you, you'll need to start with a process of elimination. You are having trouble with your speakers, your sound card, or software.
Put your speakers on someone elses PC and see if they give you sound. If so, you can eliminate the speakers. Then try your sound card on another PC. Maybe you have a buddy who will let you put your sound card in his/her pc to test your sound problem. If you get sound on your buddy's computer, then it isn't the sound card either. The last thing would be a problem with some software. Think about what software you were running at the time and start from there.
Give us some more information....programs you were running, speaker system you have, sound card, operating system, etc.
Hope this helps so far. Keep us posted.
