My opinion is that you're missing your sound drivers. Do you have any idea what device you used before your sound stopped working, i.e. AC 97 Audio, SoundBlaster, etc? If you remember that, google the brand/line of the integrated (i'm guessing you have integrated audio) chip for the most recent drivers/programs.
Other than that, i'm not much help. When i re-installed my XP, it didn't include the sound drivers. Luckily, i remembered that i had AC '97 Audio in my box, and was quickly able to find and download the correct files.
