If you're using Windows ME or XP, try a system restore to a date when your sounds were working, kkkoolkev.

You could also go into control panel, add new hardware and see whether your audio system is shown with a yellow exclamation mark against it - if so it may well need drivers - if it indicates it is working properly but isn't then it may have failed or as stated by Maj above got itself in a tizz which you might be able to sort using system retore. If it still does not work after all this but is reported working via device manager try a pci sound card
