Hello and Welcome to MyTechsupport.ca

Most likely this is on- board sound and a power surge can cause this type of issue. But lets make sure you just didn't lose your driver. Go to Device Manager and look for any yellow question marks or exclamation points.

To access Device Manager, use any of the following methods:

- Click Start, click Run, and then type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotation marks).
- Right-click My Computer, click Manage, and then click Device Manager.
- Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
- Type the following command at a command prompt:  start devmgmt.msc


Click on the Start button and continue to the Control Panel section of the Start menu
Control Panel Window will appear

In the Control Panel window find Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices section, click on it
The Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices window will appear

In the Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices window find the Sounds and Audio Devices section, click on it
Find the Audio section tab (top line of buttons), click on it

The Audio Settings section will open, is your audio device listed?

It seems that you lost all your hardware drivers. You should think about purchasing a UPS (Uninterrupted power supply) to protect your computer from further damage.
What is the make/model of the computer?
Do you have the a driver cd?
