If none of this works it is most likely a hardware issue. Open up the laptop and make sure the plug is securely plugged in and the wires are not damaged. In rare cases the speakers themselves could be broken and will need to be replaced.

Additionally the thermal grease between the CPU and the heatsink could be too old and need to be replaced. Try first cleaning the fan area with compressed air and if that doesn't work try replacing the thermal grease.
