Hello welcome to GeeksToGo, We will be happy to help you.

We will need some more information

If this is a name brand system:

Hard Drive Size, How much free space

If this is custom then We will need the following:

The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model

Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started

All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.

Go to
Start>Right click on my computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager
under the heading Sound, Audio is there any yellow exclamation marks
Also go to
Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Volume Control
make sure your volume isn't turned up all the way
Third go to

make sure you have the right speakers in the drop down box
