I think you are looking at the wrong thing.
Lets start from the begining-
1. Make sure the drivers are installed. I am going to assume you are using XP since you did not stat otherwise. Right click on "My computer" and click on manage
On the left side you will see device manager, click on that and a device tree will show up on the left side. Look for the catigory " Sounds, video and game controllers" if it is not listed then you do not have drives installed. Look for any device with a red of yellow symbol next to it. If this is your case, post about not having drivers for your sound card and list the model of your laptop. If you dont see either, then you may have to get into the BIOS to enable the audio hardware
2. Make sure windows knows what sound card to use.
Open control panel and make sure you are in classic view (left side, but if you see more then 15 icons then you are in classic view) Find "Sounds and audio devices" open that and click on the tab at the top called audio. In two of the drop down boxes, one under sound playback and one under sound recording, make sure your sound card is selected. (unimodem is your internet modem, not your sound card, don't select that, if you have no other option then your card is not setup to the system and you are back at step one)
Once that is done, click volume under the sound playback and make sure all of the sliders are up (except for the mic) and unmuted. Use what ever media player of choice you want and test the sound. Make sure the volume in the player is turned up too.
