Subject line or body of message? You seem indecisive and excitable. =)

Have you verified the driver is still installed and updated the driver just
to be safe? Made sure that mute isn't on in the advanced options? Tried
other speakers? Tried those speakers on another device? Verified it is
actually plugged into the correct outlet?

You must know what sound card you have. Look on your receipt/invoice for
the computer - ask the people you bought the system from, open it up and
look, etc.

There are applications out there that can identify what hardware you have,
but I think they all depend on a properly installed system - as I think they
pull the information from the registry. Perhaps they do not - so I will
recommend you try one..

Once you know what you have, what next? Go get the latest driver for your
hardware/OS from the manufacturer's web page. For example, let's say you
have an NVidia chipset video card or ATI video card, perhaps a Creative
Labs sound card or C-Media chipset sound card...
