    Which OS you are using? (the drivers you are using are pretty old, 2003 to be exact)

    In the meanwhile you should uninstall your currently installed drivers; and remove left over files with either Driver Sweeper or Driver Clean Pro (free versions of both of these are easily available). Then simply reboot. If you are using either Vista or Win7, it should auto detect your onboard sound and install windows generic drivers for it, check whether system sounds or any sound for that matter plays ok.

    I am using win xp sp 2.
    And sound in bios is enabled.
    I'll try to remove my old sound drivers and find latest.

    SP2? Dxdiag indicates you're running SP3

    Also click Start->Run, enter services.msc, scroll to Windows Audio
    Verify Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic

    Yes it was sp3 ,but i reinstalled win.I thought that it will fix the problem.
    I checked Verify Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic ,it was as you written.

    Your english is fine. no need for sorry :)

    Do you have internal speakers? Or are you using external speakers.

    Also, one method to verify its Windows and not BIOS/hardware See How to recover your folders/files when Windows won’t boot

    Create a Knoppix CD and boot into it. Then use it to play an audio CD. Verify sound works under Knoppix

    Internal speakers are the ones that come built inside of your computer.

    External speakers are plugged into the PC speaker jack (so they are outside of your computer)
