hey everybody. i have a question. my speakers aren't working and everytime i click on volume control a dialog box opens that says 'There are no active mixer devices available'. ive tried using the troubleshoot screen but that was no help. ive checked all my connections and they are fine. i had bought a new speaker system 6 months ago and it was working fine till today. it also doesn't detect my speakers now. What should I do?

It is possible that somehow your sound drivers got corrupted.

Try a system restore to a time when the speakers were still working. For a system restore press Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
Then click restore my computer to an earlier time and select a date/time in bold.

Does that fix it?

Cool, :whistling: , happy to have been of service. Re firefox - no it shouldn't have done - but then...

Try Firefox again and see if the problem replicates, but I haven't heard of Firefox doing things to sound drivers. And IMHO it is way superior to IE for most things.
