Kevin Yang, check in your device manager and verify the status of your audio device. Reinstall your driver and see what you get then. Also, attach some external speakers and see if you still have sound.
Here’re 5 fixes that have helped other users resolve the ASUS laptop sound not working in Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 issues. Just work your way down the list until the problem is resolved.
Troubleshoot hardware issues
Before we make any changes, we might have to troubleshoot hardware issues. To do so:
Make sure the volume is audible
Sometimes you can’t hear sound from your speakers simply because the volume is muted or set too low.
Set default audio devices
Ideally, when a new audio device is inserted, Windows will automatically set it as the default audio playback device. But that’s not always the case and sometimes we’ll have to set default devices manually.
Disable audio enhancements
Audio enhancements, as the name suggests, are features that allow for the highest sound fidelity from your hardware. But depending on your configuration, they can also interfere with your system and trigger sound problems. So we should disable audio enhancements to see if it fixes the no sound on the laptop problem.
Update your audio driver
This problem may occur if you are using the wrong audio 'driver or it’s out of date. So you should update your audio 'driver to see if it fixes your problem. If you don’t have the time, patience, or skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically from the Asus driver support page.
I had this problem and went thru all the answers online... then I went into control panel, sounds... and found the sound was turned off for Chrome... turned it back on and solved the problem... I think an update turned it off because it had been working properly before I updated on Windows 8 .
