Hmmm...weird problem.

Download the attached file and extract it to your desktop. Double click the extracted file and answer "Yes" when asked if you want to merge this with the registry. Reboot and see if you get the sounds back.

See if you can run this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
