If sound is not coming from your PC speakers/headphones, you may be in one of two situations. Either your hardware isn’t setup properly or an outdated/incompatible/damaged driver is disrupting communication between the PC and the sound card. And it’s possible too that your set defaults the volume on different input devices down to zero.
You need to check if the cables are connected properly and make sure they are plugged into a working power source and turned on. If it doesn’t work, there are chances that you have an incompatible and/or damaged sound driver on your PC and Windows could not recognize your sound card or sound processor, leaving you with no sound.
When you upgrade your Windows from one version to another, it occurs that current audio driver was compatible for the previous version of windows. Also PC drivers may get damaged due to virus and/or other PC problems. Out-of-date drivers can cause plenty of problems with your PC, So using Advanced Driver Updater you can keep the drivers fresh.
