You will need to be much more specific about several things:

1. What brand of laptop do you have?

2. What is the sound chipset? Go to System>Preferences>Sound What does the block that says "Device" say?

3. Have you made sure that the speakers are not "muted" in alsamixer?

4. Open a terminal and type:

sudo lspci

Look for entries that relate to sound to post back what it says.
