    I have a dell dimension 5150 computer, on windows xp running a pentium 4 processor. Everything is factory made, I had to restore it back to the original settings, the only problem was I only had the restore disc, but it didn't come with the drivers. The main thing is that there is no sound coming out of the computer. When I go to volume control it says no device mixer available, and tells me to go to control panel and lists me to do a bunch of instructions but no help, troubleshooting won't help, I don't know what to do and it is very frustrating.

A. your sound device may be built right in to your motherboard (make sure it's enabled in your bios)
b. you probably don't have installed any drivers for your sound device- install drivers by going into the motherboard manufacturer or your computer manufacturer.. post details and will help you look for them

No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed?etc etc,


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.

Copy the above address in the browser, replace + with dots....visit my support page.

all the best...

Ii have a message ' no active mixer device'


If a reboot does not fix this error, you may have faulty, incomplete driver information, windows is known for this at times.

uninstall your sound drivers from the hardware console, then reboot the PC and re-install them.

to get to the hardware console:

XP
right-click on " my computer " > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > sound, video and game controllers

Vista / Windows 7
start > right-click on " my computer " > Properties > " Device manager > sound, video and game controllers

you need to re-install your sound drivers. if problem presist, it might need to replace sound card, if sound card is built on motherboard, you may need to purchase a new PCI sound card from market.

I messed up the sound!!!!!


What O.S & what machine do you have?
anyways, go to start- run - type devmgmt.msc
Go under Sound & Audio Devices
See what device is there with an Red X next to it.
check device & install drivers for it.
If you can tell me the OS & machine, or device name, I can find drivers for you.

Thanks & Good Luck!!!!
