This I think means that you have your sound output set to go through another source, and the source isn't present (like an optical out or something). Check the Sound pane in your system preferences, and go to the Output tab. Make sure that Built-In Output is selected in the list, and try again.

Can you get a screen shot and paste it here? Hit Command-Shift-4 and drag the box across the part of the screen. Take a shot of the output devices prefs pane, so we can make sure you're in the right place.

If you ARE in the right place, it sounds like the system somehow uninstalled its audio driver or device, in which case I believe you'd need to do an archive-install of Mac OS X using the original disks that came with your computer. Fairly easy, just takes a little while.
