Angry Laptop Speakers not working!

I recently reloaded windows and started with a fresh laptop. However now the sound isn't working. At first the output to desktop speakers was working and the laptop speakers weren't. Now nothing is working. I have tried updating the driver from the manufacturer's site, and that has not solved the problem. Here's what I'm running:

I have an Alienware area 51 laptop with a P4 3.0, Win XP, ATI Radeon 9800, 1 gig RAM, and a C-Media AC97 sound card.

Any advice is welcome!

if they were working before then it is the drivers. make sure that you installed the sound drivers too. look for AC97 drivers.

I just had windows do it automatically through Device Manager. Then when I went to the manufacturer's site, the dates on their drivers were actually older than the one windows found.
