Default Windows 8 External Speaker Issue

Recently I tried connecting my laptop to an external speaker system, and all seemed well. A few days later it had been unplugged for whatever reason but when I plugged it back in it no longer worked. I have already tried the speakers with another laptop and know they are not the problem. The laptop which doesn't work with the speakers also doesn't work with any other device that would be connected though the jack connection. I imagine there could be a setting somewhere on the laptop preventing any connection to be recognized, I'm just unable to find where that setting may be.

Have you checked it they are set to default in "playback devices"?

Right-click on the speaker icon in the system tray and select Playback devices to see which device is set as the default.
