After reinstalling/installing an Operating System you can lose the Audio Drivers or sometimes they just corrupt.. Try reinstalling the Audio Drivers from the disk provide with your P.C./Laptop. If you no longer have the disk just visit the website of the makers of your P.C./Laptop or Motherboard and download the Audio Drivers from there, after that install them.
Thumbs up please if this works for you, thanks.

Can you hear the Windows Startup/Logon/Shutdown/Logoff sound? If not, there must be problem with the Sound Drivers. Please check the sound settings from the Control Panel (in your case, i don't think the sound icon is shown on the taskbar). Open the sound settings and try to adjust the volume level, if the sliders don't work, then you need to reinstall the sound driver.

Let's hope this isn't a hardware problem and so I would conclude that reinstalling the Sound Driver will definitely fix your problem.

Good luck

Thanks for using FixYa.
