Do you get a speaker icon on the taskbar?
If not, then windows has probably lost the drivers for your soundcard. Open the system applet and see if there are any problems reported under the Sound, video and game controllers.

Go to the control panel, double click the multimedia icon.
Switch on the 'show volume control on the taskbar' checkbox on the audio tab.

Check it the mmsys.cpl file exists in windows\system.

You can restore it with Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Information from the start menu and then select from the tools menu 'System File Checker'. Click on Start.
