First go to control panel - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices, then click on Sound and Audio Devices and make sure the volume is not muted.

If this is not the case click on Start - Right-click on My Computer - then Properties. click on the Hardware tab, then click device manager. When device manager opens, look for either one of the following symbols along the left hand side (!, ?, or x) The exclamation point and question mark will be yellow while the x will be red. If it is a red x, double click on that item and there is a drop-down list with the selections to enable or disable the device. Enable it. If one of the other two symbols are visible you will need to reinstall the driver. For that I will need the make and model of your computer.

Audio service

Go to the device manager of your computer. You can open the device manager in the following ways:
Start - Control Panel - System and Security - Device Manager
Start - Accessories - Command Prompt - devmgmt.msc
You will have the device manager in front of you, check for the sound or audio controller. Go for the sound or audio codec or device and right click for the properties and then click on the tab saying driver and check whether the same is disabled or enabled.

No audio and mixer device installed

1) Check all of the drivers in the device manager (I'm using on deck sound). All are functioning properly.
2) Do the suggested "Add Hardware" option to update to the latest drivers, all of which I already had.
3) Start -> Run -> services.msc -> Windows Audio, and made sure it was started up and set to automatically start on setup.
4) Made sure that the sound was enabled in the BIOS.
5) Insert a modified "machine.inf" file into the Plug and Play Enumerator.
6) Start -> Run -> msconfig -> Services, and made sure Windows Audio was checked and running.
7) System Restore (to check if one of the updates might have caused the problem)
8) Make sure the speakers were still functioning properly

is your hardware enabled ?
check it out via control panel -sound,speech and audio - sound and audio devices - hardware.
highlight your sound device and click on properties.
at the bottom of the window check that the device is Enabled.

I want to install a mixer device

Sound options are disabled for Windows server 2003. You have to enable sound and audio services using the "Services" panel. You can install that and then Enable the services. After installing click on Start - > Run -> Type in services.msc and hit enter key. Then scroll the list and find the related Service. Right click on it and go to Properties. Then select "Enable". Set the Startup mode to "Automatic".

Pls check in BIOS in advanced options, if the onboard audio is enabled or not. If not, enable it.
Pls check if the windows audio is enabled in services.msc.
If it is listed, make sure tht it is enabled.
If it is already enabled, stop the service and restart it.
If it still doesnt work, then download the driver from the yamaha website and then install it.

Sound card problem

You can either go to the manufacturers website for driver downloads and support, or you can also try going to the windows update website. You'll want to do the Custom update (not the express). After it searches for your updates, the left hand column will show if any available Hardware Updates were found.
