Go back to the Control Panel, click on Add or Remove Programs, look for 'Add/Remove Windows Components' and check if the media player is checked.
Most sound cards and on-board sound chips have their own software but the Media Player will suffice.
If it is checked, go to 'System' (in the Control Panel), then click on the Hardware tab, then Device Manager.
Go down the list to see if Sound, video and game controllers has a red 'X' showing.
If it does, then either the driver is damaged or the hardware itself has failed.
If it is only the driver, you can delete the exed item and try rebooting to see if Windows restores it.
If that doesn't work, the you may have a system board problem (expensive).
Let me know how you do-
