Default I need help with computer audio

I accidently deleted a sound device from my computer
I don't remember the exact device

Now my computer has no sound

Volume Control doesn't open
It says: No active mixer is found. Go to printers and add hardware

When I do that I get: Add Multimedia Audio Controller

When I go through the install wizard I get: The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software

How can I fix this problem and get sound again?

I had a issue kinda like that too. Do you still have the OS disc? You can install core components back on to you're PC.
