Audio problem

All of a sudden both my earbuds and wireless headphones stopped working. Only my external speakers were working. So I tried plugging the earbuds into other inputs on the computer and unplugged my speakers, then plugged them back in. Now they don't work either, so I have no audio at all. I need some audio device to work every day because I am in school and I need to access voice files to transcribe into Word documents. Help.

I would imagine the

headphones are Bluetooth which is more likely then you typical wireless. Bluetooth devices have to be paired and once paired soemtimes a code is entered for the device to talk. But if you sound card is not working there is no sound to sent to the head phones. Look in the device manager to see if your sound card is functioning properly. Also check in sounds and even to a test.
