Dj. Cool,

Go to the link below and click on the "?" to the left of "Where did my Sounds go?" to expand it and you'll find several possible fixes.

Also try this:

Go to Start > Run, and type in: services.msc.

A window will pop up with a list of services. Scroll down to Windows Audio. Right-click
and click on Properties.

Make sure that “Startup type” is set to automatic. Also, make sure, under “Service
status,” start is selected.

In my opinion it's the best Windows XP site on the Internet.
