So after various viruses and/or infections on my desktop pc i decided to use the system restore disk. Everything is in perfect condition except for the sound, because there is no sound. It worked before, but now i dont know what happened. Ive been looking around the forums and various people have been talking about "sound cards" and "audio codecs". I wish that could help me, but I dont have a clue. So if anyone can help me step by step I'd appreciate it.

*then the rest is about the tower connections :)

check device manager to make sure all the drivers are installed.
press windows key+Pause/Break (windows key is the one with windows logo)
Then when system properties open up go to hardware tab. Once there just click on device manager button. If anything got question marks beside it means you are missing a driver.
