Did you try reinstalling your sound card drivers? I am thinking that will rewrite your sndvolume32.exe file, but if it doesn't and you keep getting that error, try repairing your OS installation using the installation media. sndvolume32 is the program that loads in your taskbar for you to control the volume, and if that doesn't work, the sound doesn't work. Let me know if reinstalling the drivers works.

Here's how to fix it:

1. Do a search for ALL FILES AND FOLDERS -- sndvol32.exe
2. You should get two results:
