need to reinstall audio drivers

Specs: Windows XP
hi, my PC's sound system has shut down, I think because I disconnected headphones while it was restarting..I'm not sure. But I'm getting NO audio, (and I checked the Audio control panel, it's NOT on Mute and the volume is turned up).

How can I reinstall the audio drivers? I don't think I have any original disks that came with the computer.

... click "start" run (type) mmsys.cpl [press enter]

... click audio (tab) ...under sound playback default device, if you click whats in there can you toggle to another device?

... download this (freeware) System Spec

Under the Audio tab, default devices, it is grayed out and says "No Playback Devices".
