Sound Problem associate with user account

Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem? I have two username accounts on my Windows XP home edition. I only get sound whenever one of the accounts is a "limited account" and I do not get sound when the account is an "administrative account." This has nothing to do with any of the mute buttons, nor does it have to do with updating Adobe flashplayer. It appears as if it is a midi problem, because I can not see the midi driver when the account is on "administrative," however when I switch the account to "limited," I can see the midi driver when I go to "sounds and audio properties and devices." I have switched both accounts back and forth and I only get sound when I am on the "limited" user account.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
