The speaker might be blown. To check this, plug in some headphones and play music or watch a video from any source, if that doesn’t work, try several sources to make sure it is not a specific program; like playing music in realplayer or Windows Media Player doesn work, try Pandora or Spotify, Playing a video on YouTube doenst have any sound, try playing a video on another site that uses a non Youtube source. If you have audio under headphones, check if you are still under warranty to get it fixed.

If the speaker is turned on already, the sound driver is not installed. Or sound driver is installed that is not right version.
