If you've a separate Soundcard in your PC[ie not onboard mobo sound],then perhaps the soundcard drivers need updating to an XP version.

have you checked the volume control go to control panel/sound and audio devices/audio tab volume failing that check your audio drivers are installed correctly control panel/ system /hardware /device manager/scroll down to sound video and game controllers is thier a circle with an exclamation mark i know the first sounds obvious but is a possibility with a new install

Do your speakers plug into the mains? Is the green (or whatever colour) light on? TR

Have you a speaker icon in the system tray

Have you checked your sound card via the Direct X Diagnostic tool?
Go to System info, tools, Direct X Diagnostic tool.
Check for sound and if it finds any problems.
Check the card/sound in Control Panel also.
