Have you rebooted lately or messed with it? Speakers or laptop? Check speaker wires if desktop.

It might be broken.

I’d start by powering down my computer & then restarting. IF that doesn’t work…Right click on your speakers icon & choose “Troubleshoot sound problems”. It will walk you through what you need to do,

Ok. How about something much less time consuming, much simpler?
