Are you saying that the little picture of a speaker in the bottom right hand corner of your toolbar has a cross on it?  I have never heard of this, as this is the place where you mute and unmute your volume controls.

Just double click on the volume icon to open the volume control. There you could uncheck the checkbox 'Mute All'. I hope this will save the purpose. If anymore complications, please let me know.

Make sure your Soundcard driver is still there, go to Control Panel select Sound and Video Devices make sure there is a sound card listed, if so go trough the setting and see if anything is muted.
Another thing to check is to make sure your Driver is still installed, sometimes just a reboot fixes that, but go and check your Sound card by going in the Control Panel to System, Hardware then Device Manager and look at Sound,Vide and Game Controller if there is a Yellow!!!!! mark if so You may have to reinstall your Driver. Just make sure your main sound is not muted do.
