Be sure that you have the correct sound card driver, if it uses an AC97 driver there are several different versions, also check that the sound did not automatically mute itself. Check the bios that the sound card is enabled. Quite often the "recovery disk" that comes with the pc will reload windows and with generic sound and video drivers, they have to be replaced with the exact driver for the hardware the pc has - the best bet is to remove the old drivers first then go to IBM and look up the exact model number and see which drivers are recommended or available, usually also the IBM site will list the possible drivers for sound and they are usually available from the manufacturer site. Here's the link for IBM http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46024.html
Then go to the device manager (right-click "Computer", then click "Manage", select "Device Manager") Then browse for the sound driver in the tree menu to the right of the window. Right click the sound driver and click "Update Driver" You may have to manually browse for where the newly downloaded driver was installed (usually somewhere in the C: folder).
