Method 2: Faulty internal speakers.

Sometimes Internal speakers of the laptop can also be damaged. This could be one of the reasons for no audio. To confirm whether the speaker is working properly, connect the earphone to your laptop, play some audio clips and check if you can hear any audio. In case you hear the audio from the earphones that means it is the problem with the speakers or audio settings.
