Most likely you didn't reinstall the driver for your sound card.

Go into hardware manager (right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager) and look to see if its installed.

It could be that the updated drivers are the problem.

I know as soon as I updated my audio drivers (Realtek AC97) the sound stopped working, so I had to rollback the drivers.

Have you tried playing a song through a player other than WMP?

And have you checked all the volume settings?
