Not sure if the no sound problem has been discussed already in the forums, scan anyway to see if it has, and if you can't find an answer there, a patch is coming out that fixes a few technical issues, so maybe your answer is there.

Hope you get your sound working.

have you checked the game options menu to see if sound is swiched on. all so dose it list your sound card at the top of the sound screan. have you updated your drivers ?. have you updated directx. have you run dxdiag. if still no sound post back with your systom spec and windows virsion and i will try to help you.

Yes the sound cards name is at the top of the screen and switched on. As i said it plays the intro bit with music and sound and on every other program but not during the game.

Had the same problem myself,
have been upgradeing various codacs on my system
installed the new Ogg Vorbis Direct show filters and sound worked perfect, I know Vorbis DLL's are included with the game maybe their a cut down version should find these with a search of google try to find the Vorbis main site for the most recent release.:)

I have tried running the Dxdiag program and everything came up wth no errors, but when i tried testing the sound and message came up saying my sound cant play hardware buffering it will only play software buffering.

Does this mean i need and new sound card even though sound plays fine in every other game?

what sound card do you have ?

Its an on board sound card so i dont know. something like avarace maybe.

Sound works fine with everything else though like baldurs gate2, High Heat baseball and other games.

I get sound at the intro screen but after that nothing.

you can try a driver or bios update from the motherboard manufactures web site or get a cheap pci sound card and disable the on board one
