Is the sound chip enabled in the bios?

Control Panel>Hardware and sound>manage audio devices in the window that pops up make sure that the audio device that you want is selected as the default for speakers.

I would love to, but its getting late here (12.05AM). So before I give it a hand, you can try with uninstalling the audio drivers completely and clear the registry entries too. CCleaner or Driver Sweeper will help you to do the job.

After the uninstall process is over re-start the PC and then install the drivers again. See what happens.

Or you could re-install windows or fresh install it, if the sound chip is not broken(as you are thinking), then this procedure should help.

Else, if its really broken, then you have to buy a PCI sound card. Good luck.

Before buying a PCI sound card you can check the BIOS if the sound/audio option is disabled or not ! If somehow its disabled then enable it. See what happens.

And double check the wiring from PC to speaker, and check that you selected the right ports for speaker on the back of your PC.

Pink one for Microphone
Blue one for Line In
Green one for Line Out

Make sure your speakers are good and working, you can try with another set of speakers or headset.
