get this:
im playing TF2 and all of a sudden my sound dissapears, totally.
i log out and restart the game, same.
i try and play an mp3, nothing.
i reboot, still no sound.

there was no popping or clicking from the speakers when it went.
just all of a sudden, silence.
these speakers are fairly old...

heres the thing, im not really a hardware guy.
granted i hand selected all the parts for this rig, but i had someone else build it.
i dont really know how to work on hardware, specifically, i dont even know which holes on the sound card are the ones i plug speakers into w/o trial and error. thats every time mind you, i never remember which they are.
w/o sound, and w/o any quality replacement for the speakers to even test with, im at a loss as to what to do?

is it a problem with the speakers (most likely), some software (doubtful as ive made no recent changes), wiring... who knows right?

my question i guess is this:
what should i test to see what needs fixing, and how?

many thanks in advance and appologies if this was posted incorrectly.

How did he fix it? New speakers? In the future you can use a set of headphones to test the computer. The speakers usually plug into the green port. Although on some HD audio or 7.1 cards the colors can change.
