Whats your audio set up?

Yeah, more details needed e.g. computer brand (if applicable), motherboard (on-board audio?) or soundcard brand/model , speakers (laptop/built-in?), operating system (Vista can be tricky when it comes to sound). Checked your connections?

yea it's a pc company (who?) machine about 6 years old with a chaintech 9pjl atx motherboard with on board audio cmedia 8738 for sound i'm pretty sure i haven't got a seperate sound card tho couldn't be certain. this computer was in the cupboard 'cos it was playing up before but then my laptop died so i had to crank the old ***** back up. it's been going ok for a while but now no sound. other specs winxp sp2 and altech lansing speakers but when i want good sound i just run it through my normal home stereo

In device manager is there a reference to "sound, vidio & game controllers"

Try re-installing the latest drivers for your sound from here?
