In Windows, go to the Start Menu (Lower Left), then Control Panel or Settings and then Control Panel, depending on which windows version.
From the control panel, if it's a list of headings with a few subheadings under each for that screen? Select "Hardware and Sound". If control panel
brings up Icons, it's simply "Sound" you want.
If from headings, "Manage Sound Devices" next...if from Icons, then the right window opens from the Sound Icon.
First tab area of what comes up is "Playback". There will be multiple devices listed there. Some don't even matter....but at least ONE should have a
green check mark over the Icon's lower right corner. That denotes the default device and what your sound automatically goes to.
If none are checked green..there is your problem and you'll need to explore the other tabs (Like "Sounds") where you can test the sound choice to make
sure you DO hear something. Change default in the Playback screen to test again under "Sounds" until you hear what you're testing.
Falling may also have knocked something loose...but this is the easy way to start, anyway.
