My speakers don't work

My computer totally crashed a few months ago, and wiped everything off my computer. It was about a month ago when I discovered that my speakers weren't working. I tried to play DVD's and Cd's and MP3's, and this was when the problem was uncovered.I have plugged everything back in, messed about with the disks that came with the computer, hoping to find a solution. I even tried to troubleshoot the problem, but it came to no avail. The green light is on. On some programs, it says that everything is working fine, but on others, it says that no device is connected. I've had my computer for about four years, and the speakers have worked fine then, but they suddenly don't work. I've checked volume control and everything. What should i do?
