    Alright I have a Toshiba Satellite L505 laptop with Windows 7 on it. I'm not the worst with computers but i'm far from the best. Anyways I have no sound coming from my built in speakers. The icon in the system tray works and the bars jump when I play a movie or a mp3 file. Everything checks-out to be running good and nothing seems wrong other than the lack of sound from my speakers. I plugged in a little speaker from the headphone jack and got sound. I've restarted many times I've done a system restore, I've gone through the device manager and did the simple stuff. If you have any idea what happened or what went wrong Please let me know. Thank you for your time and your insights on my problem.

    Assuming the driver is correct, have you checked that the sound is not muted in the volume control?

    I have come across a case the the driver loads ok but it turns out to be too old. Updating the driver helped.

    check speaker volume, some have volume control at top, esp dell speakers, check if wire is plugged in the right port for line out
    check the power on speaker is on
    check the speaker on another system, or ipod to see if they work
