Uninstall everything to do with your laptop onboard sound, then reinstall the drivers and software you have for it (just like new). If that doesnt work then update the drivers for it. Mess around with the settings again and if no improvement it must be a physical speaker problem.

Did you check the mute button on the casing? I had a pavillion and it had a mute button that I pushed by accident and caused some confusion for about 10 minutes.
