your drivers for your soundcard need reinstalling. you need to visit the support site for your computer and download the relevant sound drivers.

have you checked device manager for any issues with your sound card.
go to
control panel/ sound and audio devices
select audio tab.
in the drop down boxes are there any devices listed?
