I was watching some anime, when suddenly the sound stopped being heard. I thought it was because I hadn't turned my computer off in all day long. So, I decided to shut it down for some time, and when I turned it on again, I found out it was still the same problem. I also thought it was just the webpage, but apparently, it doesnt work on youtube either.

I ran dxdiag, and the diagnosis confirmed my speakers were fine, and that there were no problems at all with them. But still, no sound can be heard coming from computer.

What's the matter?

Check your volume control options, playback devices and volume mixer. Other then that, It could be a bunch of things. Your gonna have to keep trying/checking different hardware and software options until you figure It out.

Assuming you are running windows

Press the Windows button + R
type devmgmt.msc
check to make sure audio drivers are working

Windows start button/ bubble
Control panel
Hardware and sound
Manage audio devices

Rightclick ---> Show disabled devices, show disconnected devices
Switch default communications/device to your speakers.

Did everything you said, and results were everything is smorking fine. I went to YT and tried to check out if they were back, but still, no sound is coming out from them.

It's possible that it's a hardware fault (break in the wire, or maybe the actual speakers blew). More likely it's a software or connectivity fault.

Unplug, clean the connector, then replug it. Try updating to the latest audio drivers/software, or even just doing a clean reinstall of the drivers. Also, as above, double check all the volume options and which audio device is listed as default (e.g. My PC has HDMI, rear, front and SP/DIF audio device to choose between). Also, check if in NoobToob the volume has been turned down or muted.

I don't what the f*** is wrong, but my speakers suddenly started playing again. I was fooling around, and then I heard sound. What could this mean? I did not move a thing.
