Hm, so, when you click on the sound control in the bottom right (or if there is none, when you click on the device in the sound device on control panel) it gives no options to what you can do? It is totally grayed out? Did you install any sort of card lately? From the top of my head, it may be a faulty sound board... I do not usually encourage buying anything, but they sell sound cards cheap and you could get 5.1 surround even... But before you go out buying, we are going to trouble shoot a little bit more, now your positive the speakers are plugged into the back of the computer, that the speakers have power etc etc, and have you gone to device manager, looked up your onboard sound card and taken a look at it, if you can do it and tell me what it says, a long with answering the questions I asked, I'll be more than happy to help more.
