    I have a Dell Latitude D600 with the same problem. The card worked fine for years then stopped working one day. It then came back for a short time. Now it's totally gone. I had been dealing with kxvo.exe (virus). I wonder if that precipitated this.

Volume Control - The volume icon does not appear in the notification area (system tray)
Go to Start/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices.
On the Volume Tab under Device Volume, put a check in the box that reads: Place volume icon in the taskbar.(Classic View)

If that has been tried:
Place your XP CD in then go to Start/Run and type in:

Once done: Go to Start/Run and type in: regsvr32 stobject.dll
