Welcome iam2trickey :D!

Try checking "Start", "All programs", "Accessories", "Enterainment", "Volume Control". Make sure "Wave" and "CD Player" sliders are set reasonably high. Check back with the results <_<!

Are you sure the speakers are connected to the correct output on your sound card?

Does your device manager show any unknown devices or conflicts?

Try removing your sound card from the device manager and then restart. The hardware wizard should find the sound card on reboot and reinstall it.

Everything sounds like it should be working. You could try a repair installation of Windows XP: http://www.geekstogo...p?showtopic=138

If that doesn't work, try another sound card. <_<
