Sorry if I'm teaching my granny to suck eggs but

1) make sure they're plugged in, on and turned up
2) Make sure they're not muted (normally accessed through speaker icon near clock

You could try reinstalling your sound card driver

open control panel select sounds and multimedia and check all the volumes

Some PCs need powered speakers, check your manual as to what type you need.

Are they new or have the worked before?

Do you have any way of verifying that the speakers work, like another pc or device that they can be tested on? That should isolate whether the problem is PC or Speaker related.

Sound issues I have had in the past have come from:

-speaker jacks in the wrong soundcard (where the PC has a motherboard with onboard sound and a seperate sounddcard) - its very easily done

-the output device being set to the wrong option in the above case

-the overall PC volume being set to 0 or mute
