1. You will need to get to the "device manager" if this is Windows XP
if you have Windows 7 you will need to go to the "control panel and click "Hardware / sound the
then go to Manage Audio device" from here you should be able to see if the drivers are
there and the device is working properly.
a. the Windows help can guide you but here is the Microsoft site that has the video to
go through the steps.

*
For Windows 7 instruction
Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then, under System, clicking Device Manager.? Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Here is the Microsoft site instructions:

Sound problems can be caused by cables that aren't connected properly, corrupt drivers, incompatible drivers, sound settings, missing updates, and problems with your sound card.

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

No sound or mixer devices


a. your sound device may be built right in to your motherboard (make sure it's enabled in your bios)
b. you probably don't have installed any drivers for your sound device- install drivers by going into the motherboard manufacturer or your computer manufacturer.. post details and will help you look for them

No active mixer's


please define "reformat". A reformat to me means a complete "renewal" of both hard drive and op sys. If you agree, then windows did not detect your sound card during re-install. Open device manager and look for ant yellow markings next to the list of the sound system drivers. Those markings are telling you there is a driver problem, so proceed to update the drivers for each device. (for help-post back). If no devices exist in the list, then you must do the following: 1.) if secondary "plug-in" sound card, power down, remove card, power up to windows, shut down windows, plug in card, start windows. 2.) if MOBO-based sound, open BIOS screen at startup and ensure that all options are enabled for sound.
