I had the same problem in my laptop HP Pavilion after installing Vista's SP1 update.

My solution was go into HP Support site, download and install the most recent device driver. It took almost three minutes to download and install, but it worked immediately.

Hope this solution helps someone else.
My laptop is a Sony Vaio model VGN-S5GP_B. had the same problem with function key f2(mute) f3(volume down) and f4(volume up) did as suggested above and this worked (XP SP3):

right click my computer
services and appications
right click windows audio
made startup type automatic
but I then did cold re-boot
all three functrions were then back to normal

ps: I remember switching windows audio startup type to manual - but could not remember where - silly me !

Hi Pam,
it is highly unlikely a virus would stop your sound coming through altogether.
this seems to be driver related.
Nice try though.
