First, please confirm your operating system. Is it Windows XP? Home or Professional? SP1 or SP2?
Next, do you hear any kind of sound at all? Confirm that your speakers are plugged into the correct jack in the back of the computer and the the volume is not all the way down.
Now, go to Control Panel, Sounds and Audio, Volume tab. Confirm that the Device Volume slider is not on "Low" and that "Mute" is not checked.
Then, go to the Sounds tab. The bottom half of that screen is "Program Events". Click on one, then open the Sounds drop-down box and choose a sound to play. Next click the play button to the right of the Sounds drop-down box. Did you hear anything?
If still no sound, let's check in Device Manager - you may need to reinstall the sound card. Right click My Computer, Manage, Device Manager. Expand the Sound, Video, Game Controller category. Do any of the items have a yellow ? or ! over them? Do you see the item that is your sound card? It may say something like "Brandname integrated sound controller".
If it has a yellow symbol over it, right click it and choose Update Drivers. You may need to have your driver disk handy.
If it appears okay, right click it and choose Uninstall. Reboot your computer and allow Windows to reinstall it.
Did that help?

So did you do all those suggestions? Please be as specific as possible with your answers. This will greatly help us diagnose and resolve your issue.
In Device Manager, what is the name of your sound card/controller?
Did it or anything in the Sound category have a yellow symbol?

the drivers for this device are not installed code (5) manufacturer unknown

Is your computer custom-built or a name-brand?
If name-brand, what brand/model is your computer?
If custom-built, what is the brand/model of your motherboard?
Do you have any of the disks that might have come with your computer?
If you don't know, you could try downloading and installing Everest Home from here. This should be able to tell what sound controller you have so we can go find the drivers.

However, check the sound controller in Device Manager now that you've installed the drivers. Is there still a yellow symbol over it? If so, changing speakers won't help. We've got to figure out how to get the device installed properly.
