    Do you have the audio driver for your board? Or go to your motherboard's support site to find the latest driver. Best to try uninstall then reinstall audio first. (Look in Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs first as likely Audio/Sound has an entry there and, if so, uninstall it).

    Also.. maybe not related to your problem but probably good to update to SP3 sometime soon (do backup all your stuff tho before upgrading)
