Re: no active mixer's
The mixer should have installed during the install of your audio software.
If you have your Acer CD you can load your CD & look for the driver folder & open it. Find Audio or Sound folder.
Re-install your driver software.
You can open the link below that will open Acer's PDF file that contains your audio software. Depending on which sound device you have in your notebook.
Acer sucks at maintaining the correct drivers for their model no#.
Though you can find the Aspire 5570-2609 notebook, Acer does not list their driver's as 5570-269. They only list Aspire 5500-5570. For the 5570 click here & goto pg. 2
Audio driver v.18.104.22.16873
