Look for the Volume Mixer icon on the bottom right of your screen in the toolbar near the time. It may be hidden so click the "
If the Volume Mixer icon is not there, go to the Start Menu then click the icon for Control Panel. In the Control Panel window, select Sounds and Audio devices. Once in the settings for Sounds and Audio devices, there should be a checkbox for the option to "Place Volume Icon in the Taskbar." If no checkmark is there, click the box and then click on "OK". Now the Volume Mixer icon should appear in the taskbar.
Proceed by clicking this icon to launch the control panel for Volume Mixer. From here, you can change the volume settings for your computer and specific programs. Be sure to adjust the Master Volume setting.

There are no active mixer drivers available information msg comes when i clicked volume cntroller

Go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Multimedia or Entertainment and then select Volume Control. Note: If you have more than one playback device installed in your computer, make sure that the proper device has been selected before modifying the mixer control settings. To do so, select Properties from the Options menu, and make sure that the proper device has been selected.
Make sure that the Mute All check box below the Volume Control slider and the Mute check box below the Wave slider are not checked, and that the Balance sliders for Volume Control and Wave are in the center of the scale.
Move the Volume Control and Wave sliders at least halfway to the top of the scale. If the Play Control and Wave sliders do not appear, select Properties from the Options menu, and then make sure the Play Control and Wave check boxes are checked. You may need to adjust the current Play Control or Wave slider settings to play wave files at the volume level you want.
If you hear popping or crackling noise from USB speakers, turn off the SpeedStep (if you have a Intel Mobile Pentium III processor) functionality during the sound session. To do so, set the power scheme to an non-adaptive mode: Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance, and click Power Options. On the Power Schemes tab, click Always On in the Power schemes box, and then click OK.

I cant hear any sound from my computer when i

It looks like the sound card driver has gone bad or disabled. It would be great if you have shared the windows version you are using.

I am going to give certain steps that will be common for almost all operating system for you to check

Right click on my computer (or computer for Vista / Windows 7)
Click on Manage
in the left side of this window click on device manager, check if you can see any question mark or exclamation mark, if you see it on audio devices or anything resembling sound related items then its confirmed that the drivers are the problem,

Based on the make and model number of your computer / motherboard / sound card we need to download the right drivers and get it sorted

use the following link to know how to download the appropriate drivers.

if sound was working before couple of days you can also do a system restore with the following procedure, do not panic you will not loose any file you created (you may loose application installed recently(
for XP
click on Start
go to All programs / programs
go to Accessories
go to System tools
click on system restore
click on the next button
choose a date which is bold and you know that your sound was working
and click on next and follow onscreen instructions.

for Vista / Windows 7
click on start
start typing system restore
click on system restore
and use the same procedure as above to click on a date / restore point created when your computer had good sound.
then follow the onscreen instructions,

your computer settings will be take back to the day when it was working fine.

It about mixer device

that is a motherboard problem. The good news is that you can add a sound card to your system and disable the built in sound for relatively low cost.
