Speakers Silent or Output Distorted Sound
Your sound may either sound corrupted or not play at all.
Computer Sending Sound to Wrong Output
Before attempting to repair or replace your speakers, it is best to first check whether your software is set up correctly. Your computer may be attempting to connect to some external audio device and is therefore not correctly sending sound to your main speakers. Turn on your computer and click on the audio icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Make sure that the specified speakers listed are the ones that you are attempting to use. If they are not, use the dropdown menu and switch to your desired output device. Then test your sound again.
If your sound output is still not working correctly, you may need to shut down your computer. Once your computer has been shut down, try turning it back on and see if the problem has been solved. If this solves the issue, it may have been a simple software error. If the sound is able to run on one application and not another, then the software that it is not running on may need to be updated or reinstalled.
Out of Date Drivers
Sometimes an update to the operating system will cause the audio drivers to malfunction. The best solution to this is to update your audio drivers. You could also try uninstalling and reinstalling these drivers if the drivers are already up to date.
If your sound is still not working properly, you may need to replace your speakers.
