Are you sure that the right sound output is selected for your machine?
In Skype
Go Tools > Options
Select Audio setting and click the dropdown for speakers. Do you have more than multiple sound devices listed?

For your drivers google intel drivers. It should be the first link. Select the option to automatically detect your drivers. then allow the active x control add on. Then it should ask twice to allow the program to make changes say yes and it should display all your intel devices. Find the audio card and download the driver+ just for the sake of it download any other drivres listed. If you have windows 7 it should have the drivers in windows update under optional updates.

I came across a similar issue and it was a windows problem. Does the computer have an internal mic? If it does you may need to go to control panel->sound and devices and check which mic is selected under input devices. By the way when you say the sound does not work do you mean the the speaker is not working or the mic is not working or its both not working?
