Try loading service pack 3, free from microsoft update, as long as you have NO Dell systems. There is a compatability issue between a lot of Dell products and SP3. Also check your audio settings in your BIOS

No active mixer, volume control i did the services.msc thing, still no audio

Your question is not cleared. You indicated two opposite problems. One no sound and other volume control if not available. Lets try the both. First relating to volume control. Click on START BUTTON - CONTROL PANEL - here double click on SOUND AND AUDIO DEVICE - now on the VOLUME TAB check mark on "place volume icone in the taskbar, click APPLY, OK.

NOW, solution #2 if your sound card is not properly installed or some of the files have gone corrupt. Right click on MY COMPUTER icon click on property, locate and click on HARDWARE click on DEVICE MANAGER here locate Sound, video and game controllers if there is any YELLOW COLORED MARK on it, it indicates that your sound card is not working or not installed properly. In this window you see monitor shaped Icon, which if also used for refreshing. First click on plus (+) sign and highlight sound card then refresh it by clicking icon stated above. If the problem remains as it is, then uninstall from the same window, and refresh it and window will install automatically. restart the computer once. REMEMBER TO VOTE ME.

Motherboard cd required for my laptop zenith z75110

All you need is the drivers and they will work. Most, but not all, computer makers put all there drivers on their website. So try there first, go to the Zenith website, click on Support. They will probably ask for your model, make and service tag. The service tag is normally on the bottonside of your laptop. You should be able to download directly to your laptop. The second place is the manufacturers website that make your sound card. To find your model for the sound card, click on Start>right-click on My Computer>Click on Properties>Hardware tab and Device driver. Find your sound card in the list of hardware. Click on the plus sign to open the folder and you will see the maker of your sound card. Go to the makers website and download the drivers from there. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.
