Either :

* put in your XP CD, but don't let it fire up. Then Start > Run > type in msconfig then^press enter or click OK > Extract File > in first box type in sndvol32.exe > in 2nd box point to your XP CD > in 3rd box type in c:\windows\system32 (seeuming your XP is installed at c:\windows) > then extract the file, overwriting if necessary.

Or :

open up WIndows Explorer > Tools > File Options > Display > make sure Show all hidden fiels and folders (or similar text) is ticked > then Apply > OK > navigate to this folder c:\windows\system32\dllcache and locate the file sndvol32.exe > Copy > Paste into the c:\windows\system32 folder, overwriting if necessary > re-boot.

You should now have your sound mixer back. If still no sound, re-install your audio drivers.
