The sound on my computer has suddenly stopped working, and I have no idea why. When I click on ''Sound and Audio Devices'' on the Control Panel, it says ''No Audio Device''. The volume icon has also disappeared completely from the taskbar. The speakers however seem to be working just fine. I've tried resetting and rebooting the computer but that doesn't seem to work. Any idea what could be wrong? My computer is a DELL Optiplex GX110 and the system is Windows XP.
