Sound does not work on the administrator profile.Works on a non-administrator profile on Windows XP

Initially I suspected a missing driver, but then sound ( for movies,songs etc ) works fine on the other non-administrator account, but does not work when I log in to the Administrator account. And yes..I have checked the sound volume and mute status as well.

"The administrator account (Joe) which I was referring to was actually an account in the administrator group.
So what I did was I logged into the actual 'administrator' account and deleted the Joe folder in ""Documents and Settings"" and then restarted my system and tried logging in the Joe account and sound worked.

Deleting the Joe folder and logging in again must have created a new profile on which the sound did not work.

I am sure there must be a better way to fix this rather than deleting and re-creating the profile."
