can you get any sound at all ie if you went online and a site uses sound can you hear it?

is there any exclamations next to sounds in device manager?

what player were you using at time?

can you system restore to time before the occurrence?

you could uninstall the soundcard driver and reboot and detect as new hardware let xp install driver.

any info on what software you were using, operating system and motherboard any details would help us help you, please

If it is Windows XP go into the click start then control panel/sound and audio devices/the fi8rst upper box with device volume, click advanced .
Then look at which devices are shown there is a small box at the bottom of each item for a "mute"tick, make sure thay are not ticked as that will turn of "mute" the sound from that device.
Then look at each device there is a slide for volume up is louder of course.
check that the speaker plug has not came out the socket in the computer "Green" is normally sound out. Blue is a microphone socket.
