Try running "dxdiag" from the run menu and see if any more information pops up under the sound tab.

when i typed "dxdiag", A window opened with a title "DirectX Diagonstic Tool".

I selected the "Sound" Tab

There was no information under the titles Devices,Drivers,All the fields were empty.

In the bottom of the region,under the title "notes",There was this msg:

"No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer."

Is it an onboard sound card? If you know the model number of the motherboard I can find out from that.

The Everest trial might tell you your motherboard model (and perhaps your sound card):

If not, when you start up your PC it should come up with a make and model. If it's an off the shelf PC like a Dell or HP, it would have the model written on the case and I can look it up from that.
