Default Sound card + CD drives unistalled/not found when I came home from work!

Well i've just got back from work, put on media player, clicked on a song and the entire list of songs got that lil e.mark next to them, i clicked on one to check what the error was and it says that I do not have a sound card installed, well I obviosley do! I tried reintsalling the drivers for it from cd, so I popped the CD in, went to my computer, and the cd drives are no longer appearing. the floopy appears but none of the cd drives are appearing.

Everything is onboard btw.

Any suggestions or just a reinstall?

Did you try running a type of antivirus? A reformat is always a way out.

I haven't installed anything for a week. All I have got on my system is
Zonealarm
AVG free
Spybot
adware
limewire
cooledit
cubais
sibelius and the usual microsoft word, ppt, access etc etc.

None of these has ever made it act like this.
Shall I just reformat and reinstall?
