How to fix the sound card?

Question

This computer was givin to me. It didn't come with any software. When I booted it up and started setting it to my preferences I noticed I wasn't getting any sound. I went on a search for the volume control and couldn't find it anywhere. It seems like the application was deleted and all that was left were shortcuts. Is there any way to recover it without having to spend money I don't have?

Thanks
