I do not have any sound PLUS the volume icon is missing from the task bar.
When I went to Control panel->Sounds & Audio devices, it says that my volume control programme is not there!
I am using windows xp home edition but I do not have the XP CD.

THANK U for helping a girl in trouble!! :thumbsup:

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.

Need to find out what is in your system and computer try this:

Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit = key code for Windows

Belarc Advisor Security Definitions Update

Now you will be able to find out what kind of sound card you have and psot it.

Also I noticed you said you do not have the Windows XP install cd. What is the make and model of your computer?

It might have a recovery partition and you just might be able to make a recovery disk.
