For future reference that "DONGG" sound is called chime.

And no, no idea. Maybe try resetting the PMU?

Have you been using the audio out socket for external speakers? If so, the contacts inside may have stuck in the 'open' position, thus muting sound to the internal speakers (an event that occurred with my eMac).

Use a dummy 3.5 mm audio plug, or the regular one you might be using (turn any amplifier off though) to poke around inside the audio out socket, inserting and removing the plug several times. That may restore the sound.
