Dear Bambinela,

Please get to the Device Manager and see whether the audio drivers have been installed or they need to be updated. The problem should normally be sourcing from the sound driver.

Thanks.

I have already reinstalled my sound driver. And when I want to update it I see message "The best driver software for your device is already installed", so no need to update. But there is no sound yet...
P.S. With ear pieces I can hear clear sound. :)

Hello Bambinela,

If you can hear the sound with ear pieces, everything is fine with your audio card and drivers.

Please check your speaker connection, if it is okay, your speakers are damaged and must be replaced or repaired. You can always see if you borrow another pair of speakers to test.

Regards

Opps pardon me! I just read that you have internal speakers. This is not the same at all. My experience with internal speakers is that they are prone to fault, as a matter of a fact they are know to cause other technical failure with the rest of the hardware. I suggest that you use external speakers for internal one are expensive to repair and may cause damage in the long run.

Best regards

Ok, thanks. :)
I tried to restore my computer to the state it was in before something went wrong with speaker, but a message "The selected backup could not be found. System restore is looking for a restore point that is on your backup. Choose a different restore point." has appeared. I can restore just to 1st August, but the problem appeared a few days earlier. Why is that so? :(

Because there was no restore point created on the date you choose. They are usually indicated in bold. If you click on a date, on the right pane, it should tell you what happened that day that created a restore point. If not, it is not a valid date and you must go further back. But believe me restoring will not revive your speakers for speakers are strickly a hardware problem which restoring Windows cannot solve.
