Sound is lost on my laptop

Hi everyone,

I was listening to some music some days ago and then my computer suddenly crashed. I restarted it and then I couldn't hear any sound from my laptop. I can hear sound only on my headphones, but it is distorted and very bad.(and only from the left side)

There is a button on my laptop and if i press "mute", then there is icon on the right side near the clock and it still shows that the sound is not muted.

Device manager shows, that everything is okay

I tried Control Panel>Sounds&Audio Devices>Sounds and played some sounds... and my laptop releases something like "brrr","bum" or even nothing.

I feel totally lost cause there is dance championship after one week and I can't practise without music!

So, are there any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I have just recently typed "dxdiag" in "Run", and when i tested the sound, I got this message:
your sound card does not support hardware buffering. What does it mean?

Its nothing to worry about it just means your system does not support the frequency for testing with "dxdiag"

have you tried reinstalling the audio drivers yet.

I have deleted codecs, and reinstalled them
Then deleted drivers but I am not sure if have reinstalled them properly.
Anyway, I have just connected other speakers to my laptop.

Fortunately, I can hear good quality sound but ONLY from one side...
Maybe my laptop speakers are broken?
