1. Boot into safe mode. Run your anti-virus and anti-spy. You do have those installed, right?
Reboot in regular mode.
2. Rt click Computer > Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables
Pls check and ensure following values:
%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\Sy stem32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShel l\v1.0\
3. Also type cmd in start menu > Run it as admin. In the cmd prompt type "sfc /scannow" and hit enter. You may have to reboot again.
After you have done all this, pls revert. Lets see the status then.

Open Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager > Under Sound, video & Game Controllers, find your speakers. See if its enabled, else right click and select Enable.
If not it could be some other problem ...
