    Look in the Device Manager and see if there is a yellow mark anywhere in the audio sections. If you find anything, delete it and reboot. See if the sound comes back

    do check for device driver problems.. but i've also seen this message if Windows Audio service is not running.

    Click Start->Run, enter services.msc

    Scroll down through the list of services to find Windows Audio. Check and tell me if Status=Started??? If Windows Audio Status is blank or =Stopped that's the problem. Let us know
