If one speaker doesn't work, then I would check the audio with another set of speakers. It could also be the sound balance that is turned all the way to the right. You can change the volume and balance in the control panel and sounds icon.
Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:
Goto Control Panel
Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
In device Volume Click Advance
Master Volume Control Window will open
Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.
From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.
For Vista and Windows 7
From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
Increase the volume to max.
2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.
"No Active Mixer Device installed".....The Sound and Audio issue of Windows.....the infamous issue being faced by many PC/Laptop/Notebook users all over the world....on clicking the volume control icon in the task bar near the clock.....or....Sound and Audio Devices Grayed Out in the Control Panel

Go to Device Manager, select Sound, Audio and Games Ctlr expand (+) press the plus sign, go one by one on all those that show a speaker image...select each one by one and right click, and if it has the "uninstall" option...just uninstall. Dont do anything further....just shut down pc/laptop Then...u need to go into system BIOS 1 - Start PC/Laptop...press DEL or F1/F2/Insert/Home key...this selection of key to go into BIOS depends upon ur type of PC in some Del key works in some F1/F2 key works to go into BIOS....you need to do this before the WindowsXP screen appears....get into BIOS... 2 - Scroll/go to On Board Peripherals...press enter...next screen.... 3 Look for A- "On Board audio" B- "AC97 audio" or any thing that says "Audio" C- "Look for anything that says "MIDI" with some numbers 301,205 etc in [ ] just Disable all the above by using PgUP PGDN key Press F10 and chose Yes to save the setting in BIOS or use Save and Exit in BIOS Let WinXP load...go to Device Manager...go to Sound Audio and Games Controller...check all those that you uninstalled earlier if they RE-Appear...It should NOT......Re-appear.....if it does then do the above process once more.
U are now all set for the next move.... U need to spend just 1$ to buy this product on Ebay...you can buy any similar product of your choice but it must have the audio and mic output ports like this one has...and must be able to connect to your USB port of your PC/Laptop
This below image and product name is only for your info, you can buy any such similar product available in your area....but it's must have the Audio and Mic output ports like the one on the image below and must be able to connect to your PC/Laptops USB ports...
"USB 2.0 Mic Speaker 5.1 Audio Sound Card ADAPTER #9340" You can Google it and locate it where you can buy...
Connect it to a USB port, connect your speakers/mic to the correct audio/mic slots in this device....WinXP will auto install this hardware and you will get back your Volume Control Icon...and all functions will work in Control Panel (Sound and audio Devices)...
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside. 1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other. 2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd. 3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable. 4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously. I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working. -------------------------------- Rovan C
Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?
If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.
Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.
The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?
