No Sound Asus Laptop and Unable to Watch Videos on YouTube

I have no sound on my Asus Laptop (Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. |  | K73E Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz | CPU 1 | 782/100mhz.)  I have Windows 7 64 bit.  I use Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Version  Neither one is showing any issues.   I has ASUS assist me on restoring the BIOS and installing the Chipset driver and Audio driver.  They said I should mail it to them but it is out of warranty.  I've followed the help on the Microsoft website for no sound.  My audio card is not showing it has an issue.  I have tried a headset and I am unable to hear any sound.  I can play any videos except YouTube which error out.  If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.   Otherwise I'll have to take it into a computer shop to get fixed.  Right now I need my computer as I am searching for a job.  Thank you.
