First it was just sound from on-line sources, but now it is also sound from my PC media players that is lost.

The Sounds and Audio Devices Properties shows the Mute option as being blanked off. I tried to reinstall drivers but it would not allow this. Winows fix it can't do anything either.

OS is XP Home and PC is 4 years old.

If you can't roll back the driver uninstall the device and xp will find it on bootup and reinstall.

I did remove all the audio codecs, but they never came back on after boot-up.

Have you checked windows audio is started and on auto in services? Then try windows update.

After trying everything such as reinstalling drivers and reconfiguring via 'services' I decided to reformat. I still can't get audio on and also I can't get PC to access Internet via BB modem. Could this be a hardware issue?

After reformatting did you install the motherboard drivers?
