Hello,

Try this 1

1) First make sure that "Windows Audio" status is "Started".

Right-click on it and click on "Start" to start it.

2) If the problem still exists then try reinstalling your audio drivers.

You can download the drivers from your manufacture's website.

Click on the below hyperlink "Drivers" and follow the onscreen instructions.

Good Luck

Seems like you are having a Service pack 3. Follow the below instructions
1) Make sure that Onboard audio is not disabled in CMOS settings.
2) First install the "Chipset" driver and then install the "Audio" driver.
