My hp mini 110-1000 has no mixer device


A mini note book is a very restricted device - with plain standard audio hardware - go to HP.com - select software and drivers - put in your product number then select your OS - down load the audio driver package.

Hallo,after update windows xp my volume control will not open simply because is says there is not active mixer devices available. and then it talls me that i need to install the mixer device at the add...


If you are intrested in uninstalling the update the you have 2 options.
I aint sure about what the active mixer is. Must be a driver malfunction or something.

You can go to the laptop manufacturer website and download the driver for the sound card and check if it works otherwise

Go to Control Panel -> Add/ Remove programs -> In the top you wil have an option which says show updates. It will show all the updates and you can uninstall the latest windows XP update.

else

Go to Start->All Programs -> Accesories -> System tools -> System restore and restore to a date earlier than 1 week.

This should help

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

I have a new asus p6t motherboard. No audio.


Install your audio driver for your motherboard.

Go to Asus Downloads

In the "Input Model to Search" box in the upper left, type your motherboard model. (P6T)

Click the Search Info button.

You will get a page that has 6 versions of the P6T motherboard. Select the correct one.

A window will open asking for your operating system. Select it from the drop-down menu. Click Search.

The list of available drivers will open. Click the x next to Audio.

There are 3 choices. 2 are for Reatek and 1 is SoundMAX. I would try the top Realtek driver first.

Click on the "Global" link to download it. When the Download window opens, Save it to your computer where you know how to access it after the download. For ease, you can select Desktop and save it there.

After the download, close all programs and run (double-click) the file you downloaded. Reboot after the install.

Should this driver not work, comment back and we'll try the SoundMAX.

No sound comes out of my speakers. it says no active mixer devices available. wat do i do? is there anythng i can just download to activate it.


Hi,

1) The first step should be your driver CD, that came with the
mother board.

2) The next step is to open up the windows device manager,
and look for yellow exclamation marks, indicating any drivers
that don't work.

On XP,

Right-click My Computer,
----> properties
----> Hardware
----> Device manager ...

3) Right on any device in the list, and SCAN for
hardware changes. Let Windows do its thing if
it needs to re-install any drivers.

4) You should be able to download the latest device
drivers from ASUS (here):

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

5) Finally, sheck your BIOS settings, to make sure the
audio hardware is enabled.

Hope this gets you started.
Please rate my answers,

Martin

There is no sound


Audio drivers for this, for Windows XP, are listed here -

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=366264&lang=en

Now, you stated there was no Audio device listed in the device manager. Are there and PCI Devices or Multimedia devices listed under the OTHER DEVICES section in the device manager?? Possibly with a yellow question mark listed next to them?? If so, then that may be your audio device, and the link above will send you to the correct page for XP drivers for your machine.

If there are no OTHER DEVICES listed, and nothing with a yellow question mark in the device manager, then it may be a hardware issue. Could be that the audio is turned off in the bios, or simply just bad. For which, the fix, would be just installing a PCI sound card.

Hope this helps, if not, let me know if you need further assistance.
