Some times when you resume from the sleep mode. This a common problem. Goto the audio manager settings reset all your audio settings and restart your computer. This will solve your problem.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
no sound after resuming from sleep mode

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and I ran into the same loss of sound after a resume
from sleep mode. Drove me crazy for quite a while.

The quick fix was to right-click on the speaker icon in the system tray, select the speaker on the menu, disable the speaker then re-enable it. Sound works again but this was a pain in the butt doing it on a regular basis.

Finally got it fixed, though. Turned out to be Creative's SoundMax software that was
preventing the sound driver from re-initializing on resume.
Uninstalled SoundMax, rebooted and the problem was gone. Works fine now.

Not sure if this will work for you but it's worth checking what you've installed just
before this problem manifested itself on your computer.
