define "not working".. no sound, chopy, weird hiss? You have to be descriptive in what is wrong, just saying htey don't work doesn't help us... also what kind of sound card and how your speakers connect to the computer.

If it's just a matter of having now sound whatsoever check your volume. Both by the master volume in the upper-righthand corner panel (by default) or by installing alsamixergui from synaptic and verifying all your different sound channels independently. Anytime I have a lack of sound it's the first thing I check (and over half the time is the problem).
