The two most common problems with sound are:

1. The wires are not plugged in or are plugged in the wrong holes (don't laugh as this happens more than you think)

2. You do not have the drivers installed for your sound card.

I plugged it right ,the sound is also not coming from internal speakers. I downloaded the sound driver from provider but the problem is still there

Have you installed the motherboard drivers?

Also, try right clicking computer then select properties and look at device manager. If you select the sound heading and expand it you should see if you have the drivers installed properly.

Go into your services and check to make sure Windows Audio Endpoint Builder is set to Automatic, and do the same for Windows Audio.

Also check Plug n Play.

And Right click on speaker icon in task bar, select Playback devices, select speakers and select Properties, make sure it says they are enabled.

Edit : Is it simply set on Mute ?

With a situation like this I use a live Linux distro either on USB or CD to boot up and see if sound works. If it does you'll know it's a software problem you are chasing and if it doesn't ........ you'll be in the same place as when you started.

Are the speakers self powered. Are they plugged in? if so is the speaker switched on, led light on? These may sound like daft questions but it has happened.
