Try to boot another OS (like a Linux Live distro), to check whether it is a HW issue or a SW issue.
In fact, maybe even trying to hit a few keys on the keyboard at the same time (to produce the HW beep) can shed some light on this.

1. Do you get ANY system or other (i.e. music mp3) sounds from your X41?...(ruling out a sound chip malfunction)
2. Were the original mp4 files by any chance downloaded from Youtube?
A few weeks back, VLC lost the ability to play the audio portion of a downloaded Youtube mp4 file... a change on Youtube's part (accidently or on purpose!) to do with how the file is converted.
There ARE downloaders/converters out there that will do a proper job of regaining the sound, but the one I was using (a Firefox extension: Video Downloadhelper) is affected as well, and does not convert the sound portion of an mp4 file. I haven't gotten around to replacing the download program yet, but I know that replacements exist.
