There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, Go to Control
Ok, after reformating my friend's Hp Pavilion Slimline s7600e because it decided to go all gay with some error, now there is no sound. When I go to volume control this error appears "There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, Go to Control Panel and Other Hardware..... "
I tried several "fixes" I found by googling but nothing worked, I went to the Hp site(where he got the comp) and looked up for drivers and there is one under 'Original drivers' -> "Fall 2006 Original Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers"
I tried that but when installing it says that I need Microsoft's Universal Audio Architecture, but I don't know where to find that crap.
So then I did dxdiag command and it says the computer doesn't have any sound devices installed and suggest to go to the manufacturer and look for drivers.
I know for a fact that the computer has an integrated card, so in order to get a driver update I need to look for what mobo it has? right?
So how do I do that without having to open the **** thing.
