I see this problem from time to time.
Sometimes, when installing and uninstalling programs, games, and other software, the audio device gets removed as well.

You can try going to have ac'97 audio drivers there that should fix you right up.
Just select the one from their list that matches your operating system, download it, install it, and reboot.

When your computer reboots, it should now have your audio restored again.
You may only need to restart the audio service to get your sound going though.

To do that, click your start button, click run and run: services.msc

This will bring up the services box.

Go almost all the way to the bottom of the list, and you should see an entry called : windows audio

Click on it, if it is running, then it will give you the choices of stop, and restart.

If the service is not running, then it will only offer start.

Start, or restart the service, if the install thing didn't do it, or if you want to check this part out first.

If all the software is already installed in your computer, then starting, or restarting your audio service might be all that is needed to get it going.

I hope that this helps you out, and good luck !
