Start with the basics. Is the sound muted? Are you using speakers? If so are the turned on? Securely plugged into the correct spot on your sound card? If they need to be plugged in to a power outlet is the cord all the way in the outlet? Like I said these are the basics but you may or may not be surprised by the number of times something basic was the cause.

If it isn't the basics did you check to make sure the sound drivers are installed?

To check Start menu. Right click on My Computer. Choose Manage.

Click Device Manager on the left side of the page.

Click the drop down arrow next to Sound, Video and Game Controllers. Do you see a yellow triangle with a ! in it?
