No Sound I have Windows XP

My sound went out on my computer. When the sound went out an icon appeared in the task bar. It is usb. When I put my mouse on it it tells me to safely remove hardware. I am not computer wise so I have no idea what is going on. Can you help me?

  1. Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

    Double click that icon and see what it tells you it is safe to remove. That advice icon wouldn't normally be associated with a sound problem, unless you have an USB powered external sound card.

    Go into Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices and click the Audio tab to see what shows up in Default Devices. Are they both greyed out?
