I understand you said you checked all the properties but we'll double check.

First, check in Device Manager and make sure there are no problems with any devices.

Secondly, double click on your Volume icon on your taskbar to then open up Volume Control. Make sure you're "Volume Control" and "Wave" are maxed and not muted.

Thirdly, go into Control Panel, then Sounds and Audio Devices, then under the Audio tab, make sure what's listed is your sound card. If not, select it and press ok. Same with Sound Recording.

Try playing a sound clip using the regular Windows Media Player Classic (incase settings were changed in Windows Media Player) use headphones when testing a sound clip with a working pair of headphones.

Post back with results. Thanks.

"I usde headphone to listen music.Today When I played music,there is no sound"

No sound from both the headphones when plugged in and the speakers, or just the speakers?

If you mean there's no sound from the speakers, did you unplug the headphones? On most laptops when you plug in the headphones that disables the sound from the speakers.

If you did unplug the headphones, sometimes the physical thingy inside the headphone jack that disables the sound to the speakers sticks and you don't get sound from the speakers when you unplug the headphone plug from the jack - try inserting the headphone plug, wiggling the plug, and then unplugging it.
