There are a lot of individual requests for help in cases of complete failure of sound to work especially on laptops, usually with very little information given on hardware, what's already been attempted to resolve the problem, and so on.

This being the case the could the OP confirm having read and followed these rules and this post on sound on laptops, please?

(That said, welcome :) and since you have sound on your headphones but not through the speakers at a guess it might be a muted volume control slider? It's hard to say for sure; are those usb headphones or do they connect on a traditional jack?)
