    This has happened to me occasionally, but I use windows xp. Try this:

    1. go into start
    2. click settings>control panel
    3. once you are in the control panel click on sounds and audio devices
    4. A separate screen should pop. One section should say device volume. Make sure that the volume bar there is all the way up. Click on the advanced tab under device volume and make sure none of the different sections are muted.

    Have you done that already? I wasn't quite sure. Well if you haven't go ahead and try it.

    At the same time as checking what Coolermaster suggested, check the Audio tab and make sure that the correct devices are selected for your sound reproduction. A friend of mine had the same problem, and "somehow" the Modem was selected as the sound device...go figure.
