Hey...I don't really know what happened, but a few months ago some kind of spyware infected my computer and someone got a hold of my IP. Everything is okay except my speakers, and I already tried to update the system...can someone help me???!

Some things to check:

Double-click on the speaker icon (if it's there!) and you'll get a slightly more elaborate version of the volume controls. Check to make sure the correct sliders are where they should be. Make sure the mute box isn't checked.

Use the Windows key and the Pause/Break key to bring up your system properties, click on the Device Manager and make sure your drivers for your sound card are working OK. Look for a big yellow question mark or exclamation point which means something's not quite right.

If it's a laptop, make sure the external sound wheel or whatever is used to regulate the volume is turned up. Thinkpads have a function key at the top, which is used in conjunction with the function (fn) key at the bottom, and will turn the sound up.
