More aboutsound suddenly
go to start--control panel--sound and see if playback device is ticked
also check your sound device is listed in device manager by right clicking my computer--properties--device manager--sound and video and game controllers
do you put it to sleep/hibernate, or shutdown in between using it and the audio stopping?
If you still see the device and it doesnt work even after a restart, see if headphones work. That will isolate the speaker hardware at least.
