Although this may sound stupid check the speaker cable is still plugged in to your sound card.

I was called out a couple of days ago to someone who said his sound wasn't working. I set his computer up.

What I found was, he had dropped a pen down the back of his desk and pulled the computer out to get it back. This in effect pulled the speaker lead out of his sound card. I have a call out fee but because it only took me a couple of minutes I didn't charge anything.

Have you just installed Windows XP? If so do you have digital speakers? If yes to both these there is a toggle in the sound set up which needs setting to digital.
