You haven't called anything.

>>> import winsound
>>> dir(winsound)
['Beep', 'MB_ICONASTERISK', 'MB_ICONEXCLAMATION', 'MB_ICONHAND', 
'MB_ICONQUESTION', 'MB_OK', 'MessageBeep', 'PlaySound', 'SND_ALIAS', 
'SND_APPLICATION', 'SND_ASYNC', 'SND_FILENAME', 'SND_LOOP', 
'SND_MEMORY', 'SND_NODEFAULT', 'SND_NOSTOP', 'SND_NOWAIT', 'SND_PURGE',

>>> help(winsound.Beep)
Help on built-in function Beep in module winsound:

Beep(frequency, duration)
     A wrapper around the Windows Beep API.

     frequency
       Frequency of the sound in hertz.
       Must be in the range 37 through 32,767.
     duration
       How long the sound should play, in milliseconds.

>>> winsound.Beep(200, 1000)

There's sound from the PC's sound system, but not from the internal 
speaker. (Is it even a speaker? It might be a piezo buzzer.)
