How to fix my iMac startup chime is not working?

Dear Mam/ Sir, the original Apple startup chime, I'm used to hear, is not playing, or any sound, I've tried following the steps in preferences/ sound/ play sound on startup/ there are several sound modes, the original Apple one is not one of them, but though, neither sound played on startup, notice that I've re-installed my iMac to factory default recently, and installed every possible update pops-up, kindly seeking your help and support, thank you.
