Default Windows XP Help!

I have just reinstalled Windows XP on my computer. Everything is working fine except I keep getting this error "There are no active mixer devies avalibale. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel, click Printers and other hardware, and then click Add Hardware. " I get this when I try to open my volume control. Please help me to figure out how to fix this.

Thanks

Or use your motherboard CD to install the drivers if you have one.

Looks like you need to reinstall your sound card driver. Use a disc if you have one or go to the website that made your sound card. For Example.. Go to google.co.uk and search up this.. Sound Blaster Audigy update. It would be one of the sites that comes up. All depends which sound card you have. =)

If you don't have your MB CD with them on for on-board graphics just goto Microsoft update and in the hardware section your driver should be there.

Or just go to the manufacture web site of the sound card your using, and get the latest drivers from them.

And if You still can't find a driver that works, then check out the links below:

or sound card drivers..
