u runnin vista or xp?

Are you using windows? Did you do any windows updates recently? Try deleting the drivers for your sound card in device manager.

go to your control panel then device manager scroll to sound game and video controllers and see if there is a sound hardware listed and double click it and see if it says device is working normally
