1) Start an application that produces sound
2) Look for the blue "speaker" in the status area at the bottom right of 
your screen.
3) Left-Click once on it
4) Click on "Mixer"
5) Turn on the "light" at the top of each bar and raise the volume on 
each bar one at a time until you get sound.
6) Turn off those bars that had no positive effect
7) If none of them cause any sound click on the "switches" tab and make 
sure that external amplifier is turned on.

If all of that fails, re-post and we can dig deeper.
