    Go to Start -> control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device manager to see what it reports for audio. Does it show a yellow or red mark on any of the lines?
    Remove or disable the sound shown there, and see if Windows will reinstall it. Otherwise, you have to download new sound drivers from the manufacturers web site.
