I was able to fix the issue on my computer. Please read to the end of this message to see if this post will help your situation, too.
First of all, I think there are two scenarios on this thread.
1) Customers losing the sound in the speakers, and then the headphone jack. (Sounds like a hardware issue.)
2) Customers losing the sound in both the speakers and headphone jack at the same time. (Might be a software issue)
I am in scenario#2 and lost sound in both the speakers and the headphone jack at the same time, which I believe is a software issue. I have a Lenovo model YOGA 920-13iKB. I think that a Windows audio troubleshooter I ran when trying to switch from a "headphone+mic" cable to a simple "mic" cable in the audio jack may have overwritten the Lenovo's Realtek High Definition Audio (SST) driver with an Intel High Definition Audio driver. My sound was gone for over a week. I also had error messages referring to the "Windows Audio" and the "Windows Audio End Point Builder".
I tried to uninstall and even delete both the RealTek and Intel audio drivers entirely, and install the most updated Realtek driver for the YOGA 920-13iKB from the Lenovo support site (18.104.22.16845 SST 22.214.171.12473 released on 28 Jun 2018). However, the Intel driver info was still listed in the System Summary (msinfo32).
I contacted Lenovo support and they emailed me a shipping slip to ship the laptop back for repair. However, I was not looking forward to being without my laptop for several weeks, so I continued looking for solutions. I contacted Microsoft support. After trying a bunch of things I had already tried, the tech suggested restoring to a point before the problem started occuring, over 1 week ago. The restore was not smooth, but it did fix the problem.
1) On Windows 10: Start\Run\rstrui.exe and select a date before the sound disappeared.
2) Run the Restore. (Mine took an hour.)
3) After the Restore was complete, I received error 0xc000021a and the system would not boot into Windows. (I found out later that it was probably because the LenovoUtilityUWP certificate was invalid.)
I fixed that second problem via the following steps. (Although the directions are different, this video tutorial from minute 1:38 or this webpage tutorial give good images of the following prompts you will see.)
4) After reboot select Troubleshoot\Advanced Options\Start Up Settings\<Restart>
5) Choose "Option 7: Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
6) After booting into Windows, I received an error message about the LenovoUtilityUWP.
(Note: Even when I ran "sigverif.exe", the LenovoUtilityUWP was not detected as being unsigned.)
7) You can disable the LenovoUtilityUWP in "Startup" or uninstall LenovoUtilityUWP in "Add & Remove Programs".
8) You may have to reboot one more time, but the sound should now work. :-)

I am having the SAME issue as well and I do not want to replace my motherboard. I am willing to buy ne speakers but It is weird they went out at the same time. I have tried every driver fix/steps posted thus far and nothing.

I've just encountered the audio problem as well. Suddenly, the speakers stopped working, but audio does work from the headphone jack. I've reinstalled the drivers etc., to no avail. So the concensus here is that I should send the machine for repairs?

Всем добрый день.
столкнулся с такой же проблемой. Гарантия закончилась неделю назад. Теперь я не знаю что делать. Внешне резистор целый. Новая материнская плата чтоит 250$ но нет гарантии то что все будет нормально.
MOD: From Google Translate:
Good day everyone. faced the same problem. Warranty ended a week ago. Now I do not know what to do. Externally, the whole resistor. A new motherboard costs $ 250, but there is no guarantee that everything will be fine.

I had the same issue as the OP.
My speakers stopped working about a month ago. Headphones worked fine, the volume setting kept switching properly (from headphone settings to speaker settings) when I plugged them in and out, but no sound was coming out of the speakers. I tried reinstalling drivers and updating the BIOS but all to no avail.
I brought the machine to the local authorized service center and they were stumped (they had never encountered an issue like this), so they ordered a new sound card (or maybe an entirely new motherboard?). About a month later, they received the part and I went to have the faulty part replaced.
Afterwards, the speakers worked fine for all about 16 hours. I can also pinpoint the moment the speakers stopped working (I remember playing a video with sound to a group of friends just before it happened) to when my device went to sleep mode, but I did not close the lid on mine – the trigger was being left idle for a few minutes.
I have since gone through all the driver/BIOS updates again and even reset my device to factory settings; this did not help.
Needless to say I am quite frustrated. It cannot possibly be a hardware issue, since people experience loss of speaker sound after a specific trigger (the computer going to sleep). Why doesn't Lenovo come up with a solution which reliably fixes the issue with a simple driver update, instead of having us users waste time doing the sleuthing and coming up with nothing, since the ball is obviously in their court?

Got my S940 2 days ago, speakers stopped working yesterday. I've just discovered this thread and read in horror all the stories about speakers failing after a few days. It looks like the same problem persists in the next generation and hasn't been fixed!
