    Is it a laptop? Most laptops have a mute button that's normally some combination of the Fn and an F key.

    You probably looked for this already, but sometimes it's easy to miss, so also check to see that the "Mute All" box is not checked in the volume control settings.

    Have you downloaded any new drivers or service packs from Windows recently?
