Assuming your sound card is in good working order I would uninstall and reinstall your sound driver using the newest version of the driver. Although Walmart, Dell, and HP rebrand the cards, it is probably actually a Broadcom, Intel, or Realtek; so do a search online for the card and find out what chipset it uses. Download the driver and try and get the newest version from the chip manufacturer instead of the manufacturers website, this will usually be more up to date then what you have on your default restore image or any of the drivers included with your PC.

On a side note; this is also good advice for newer PC's as this will also allow you to get an XP version of the sound driver instead of the Vista only version. This is usefull when the manufacturer refuses to make the XP version available or when the Vista version of the driver is incompatible with various devices, etc.

Hope this helps.
