    You may need to reinstall your sound driver. Go to the website of your computer manufacturer (e.g. sony-vaio) and search for the specific computer model you've got. They should provide a driver for your sound card. Make sure that the driver is compatible with your operating system. Just check the model of your sound card in advance (Control panel -->System-->Hardware-->Device Manager-->Audio, video, game controller-->sound card; I'm translating this from German, so I hope the English terms are correct) to ensure that you are downloading the correct sound card driver (in case you exchanged sound cards and the one you've got on your computer is not the one orginally shipped/delivered with your model). Hope that helps. I had a similar problem only a few weeks ago. Reinstalling the driver solved it.
