On the bar at the top of iMovie I clicked 'Share' then scrolled down to the optionn saying 'Export Movie...' It then asked me what size I wanted my movie to be and where I wanted to put it. I chose the large size, which supposedly can be played on all devices except an iPod. iMovie then exported my movie to 'Movies' in Finder. Once it was completely downloaded I closed iMovie and went to Finder. I opened up the movie and it worked perfectly (I could both see and hear the movie). Using a USB I copied my movie from Finder to the USB and ejected it once it had finished copying. That's when I put the USB into my PC to see whether it would play. The visual worked fine, but I couldn't hear any sound. I tried changing the file type but that didn't fix it.

Thanks for your excellent, very precise description!
Your workflow creates a .mov file - which, out-of-the-box a Windows based machine can NOT play (no audio, no video). It needs the free Quicktime-for-Windows plug-in.
soooo, that you DO see a picture tells me, there has to be something installed on that PC
My first assumption would be, this installment is somehow kaputt.
I would suggest, as a first step:
• if optional, try your usb-stick on some other PC - does it work? audio? video?
• re-install the free Quicktime-for-Windows on your PC, http://support.apple.com/kb/DL837
another option is, following advice, I give in this user tipp

… but then is the culprit indeed on your Mac, iMovie, the Project.....!
(due to our diff. timezones, I speed things up by making a bundle of suggestions):
• What sort of audio is in your Project? sound from camera?
• or do you apply music from your iTunes lib?
• or any other source?
Create a few 'test projects', just a minute:
• just original audio from your camera
• with music from iTunes
• with a diiferent, NOT purchased music, such as from iMovies own list of 'jingles'
test all 3 resulting videos on your PC .....
