my computer has lost all sound........windows XP

My computer has lost all sound.
nothing when I make the final deletion from my delete box on Outlook Express,
no sounds...
i went to control panel in my XP and to sounds. The volume is set on high. I tried clicking sone things like advanced in all the tabs at the top but I keep getting a message saying
Sndvol32.exe can not be opened, go to add/remove programs to install.
All I did today was unplug my speaker wire with the green plug, later plugged it back in and rebooted. I was testing a few mice and got a lock up here and there.
where are my sounds though the volume is set on high?

Try a some different speakers or headphones.  If those don't work, possibly reinstall your soundcard drivers.  Please post what soundcard you have, and i'll try to find drivers for you.

i do not know what sound cards I have.
my speakers only have one wire.....but there is a power button on the left speaker, and an lcd above, but turning it off and on does not make the lcd light up.

my "sound scheme" box was empty. I put windows default in the box but it did not affect anything.

I looked in physical devices and the only thing I saw that might be related is "audio controller".
