Can not hear any sound in speaker keeps saying there is no mixer device

Sounds like you need an audio driver if there's indeed a sound card or on-board audio device present. Will need the make and model of your PC to help locating a driver. Also, have you checked your "Device Manager", does it have any devices with a yellow exclamation mark?

Audio device erased

You have to reinstall your audio driver. Answers to your questions: 1. You can locate it in your Device Manager. Locate and expand Sound,video and game controllers. 2. You don't have to delete legacy drivers because reinstalling your audio driver will update it. Right click your audio software the one you found in the Device Manager and update it. It will find your installation cd of your system drivers. Else, manually install the audio driver.

I have no sound in my PC

BrendanG21, I had the same problem this morning. My sound actually quit in the middle of listening to music. Simply restart your computer (it may take a couple tries). If it's saying you have no audio device installed, but everything looks normal when you go into device manager, it's probably the same problem and this should work.
