    Have you done a PRAM reset, CMD+Option+p+r...



    In fact, do 3 in a row, takes a bit of time.


    Long shot, but...


    Open Audio Midi Setup in Applications>Utilities, see the input & output options & KHz setting there, some things will change it for their own use, then not set it back.

    There are a few possibilities.


     Make sure there is nothing plugged into the Headphones port. (If there is, unplug it)

     Make sure it is not muted. (Press the F10, F11, and F12 keys to adjust volume.)

     Check for Software updates

         Click the  in the upper left

         Click Software update. (Installing all available updates is recommended)

     Check the System Preferences> Sound> in the 'Output' tab.

    Do you see 'Internal Speakers' as shown below?

    Try these.
