Weird sound problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Suddenly my laptop's sound has decided to play "hide and seek" with me.

It disappeared a few days ago, and after about 10+ times of audio
driver uninstall/reinstall/reboot it stayed mute (well, when you pull
your ear close enough you can hear a very weak "chopped" buzzing). It
suddenly decided to come back the next day and did stay for a couple of

days before disappearing again yesterday. I again tried a few
uninstall/reinstall/reboot without success, only for it to came back a
few hours later, again leaving me without a clue. It's gone again this
afternoon, and I'd like to know if anyone know what else I can try
besides "waiting" for it to come back?

I'm using Windows XP Professional SP2.
