The first thing I think you should try is to re-install your audio drivers. If that doesn't work, I have another possible solution that will only work if you don't have an onboard (onboard the motherboard) sound card.

Assuming it is a PCI card, you could try shutting down the computer and moving the card to a different slot. The computer should recgonize it as new hardware and install drivers. I had to do this with my wireless card once and it worked (with Win XP)
