Sorry If I posted this again. It's because that they won't let me preview my other post.

So, I had this problem when I booted up my PC last week. It didn't have any sounds but my drivers and speakers are working

 

Here are the screenshots

Are you referring to Windows system sounds, such as the ones you hear when Windows starts, when you shut down, etc?

Or is it ALL sound on your computer (no audio when watching videos or listening to music)?

I assume you have checked the basics:
Speakers turned on (you say they are working so they have to be turned on)
Speaker volume turned up. Nothing muted.
Making sure speakers are firmly plugged in to the port.

Did you plug the speakers into something else to make sure they work?
Do you have access to a different set of speakers you can try on your desktop?

Your screenshot of Device Manager indicates you are using on-board sound.
It's possible that your sound device has died. The best way to test this is do as suggested with the speakers.

If it did quit, you can purchase a sound card. You should be able to find one that fits your budget.

And they are very easy to self-install.

If I was not going to use the onboard sound...I would disable it in the BIOS...not because it's positively necessary, but I see no reason to have a device listed in Device Manager which I am not using.  Disabling it in the BIOS will also prevent it asking for drivers or installing drivers for it...or being reflected as a disabled device in Device Manager.

 

Installing a soundcard requires placing it in the appropriate motherboard slot...and then installing the drivers which are on the CD which comes with the physical card.
