I had this same problem. This was the answer for me... Go to the bottom right of your screen. Click the icon that looks like a loudspeaker. A little box pops up that says "volume". Make sure "mute" is not clicked. Adjust the volume with your mouse. If you do not see the loudspeaker icon, you may need to click one that looks like an arrow; it will show you more icons.
