Go to the following sweetspot in your registry:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32
Create a new String value named “wavemapper“. As value give it “msacm32.drv“.
And that’s it, no restart necessary, all your Flash embedded videos will have sound again

T61 with WINXP and SP3.
I have the exact same problem. The mute button works, but the volume does not. Further the computer beeps. No wav files, etc. It worked yesterday. It might be intermitten. I did recently perform a clean install. It has been acting wonky since. If I reinstall the microsoft drivers (kb888111xp2en.exe) and then the lenovo drivers (soundmax) it starts working.
I even changed the registry setting to trick the microsoft driver that SP2 was installed because once SP3 is installed, the microsoft driver will not install).
I checked the regstry entry described below and it exists and is correct. Also, the desired file msacm32.drv) is in the win/system32 folder.
Any help is appreciated!

I found additional info... There is a utility called CPU-Z. You get this to find out your chipset.
Then at the intel site you download a utility for your chipset. Mine was "IATA85ENU.exe". It is the Intel Matrix Storage manager. Run this and reboot. It has been working since (a few reboots so far and sound is working correctly).
