What have you done to try to resolve this?

Check to make sure that the sound isn't muted in the task bar?

Check in the Control Panel under Sound and Audio devices to see what the volume level is set to?

Check in the Device Manager for the Sound, video and game controllers for any errors?

To access the Device Manager go to Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager. Scroll down till you see the Sound, video and game controllers, click in the box beside it with the + inside to expand the tree. The errors will appear as a big red X.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
