    I have the same problem.

    Even my sound options are not active.

    I did reinstall the drivers but for some reason it doesn't work.

    It is like i do not have a sound card at all.

    I have the same problem and I reinstalled the drivers too, still nothing. I agree it's like there is no sound card. Doesn't even work with headphones.

    No kidding? Reinstall the drivers? That's the best advice you can give? So much for the "experts."

    Has it worked in the past? Have you upgraded to Vista? Some MX models need a special driver, which I can show you how to find.

    What does Device Manager say about the audio device? Assuming that you haven't muted the speakers or turned down the volume, does it work with headphones?

You probably need to install the audio driver again.
If you don't have it, try using a driver finder program to locate it. Once installed, your audio device should be back.
