    Do other speakers or headphones work? Have you verified that you’re plugging into the correct plug? Click on the little speaker icon in the bottom right corner of your screen and check to make sure it isn’t muted or showing any errors.

    Also, Double check in device manager to verify that there are no driver issues with your should card. You should see a category called “Sound Video and Game Controllers” Be sure that there are audio codecs/drivers in this category.
