My hp mini 2133 is showing an error message of no mixer device


Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be Hardware related.

However you may try re-installing the Audio Driver.

You may download the Audio Driver from the manufacturer's website.

Please feel free to contact for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

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.


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:

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

No volume or sound for my Laptop

Please check to see if your sound card is installed/enabled, then check to see if the sound files are set to open with that device. Your computer should already have a media player installed (if you're using Windows). Set your music files to open with the media player.
