And before you try all of this: make sure your speakers (the entire playing
chain) are wired correctly, the volume is turned up, the amplifier isn't
muted and so on...

This is not because we think you are dump, it's just because it may be the
case that your brother (or someone else, who sneaked in) plays some tricks
with you... people usually feel like fools if this happens to them, but
don't feel embarased if this is the case, concratulate your brother instead.
