Here's my problem. I'm getting NO sound. My speakers are on, and they are turned up to a reasonable volume, but nothing is coming out. I first encountered this problem when I tried to listen to my music on Window's Media Player. I got an error that said "Cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding." I was confused, so I went to the volume controls to make sure everything wasn't muted. I got this message "There are no active mixer devices available."
Okay, well, there were so many things that happened earlier that day, I just don't know what caused my problem... First, that was the day I switched from dial-up to Satellite internet connection. So while the guy was hooking up the satellite, he came around to all the computers in the house and installed the antenna.. The antenna goes where a sound card would normally go, so he could have removed mine. But I swear I did not have a sound card.. I don't remember ever buying one.... And I can't find it lying around anywhere, so if I did have one, he took it -_o
Because I now have Satellite, I no longer need AOL, so I removed it from my computer since it took up so much space. I don't think removing AOL could have caused it.. But you never know.
And last, I had to move my computer to a better location in my room so that it could get a strong enough signal to go online.. I had to remove all the wires in the back and then set them all up again. I'm not a computer expert, so.. Umm.. I might have stuck the speakers into the wrong port. But I'm guessing the green plug of the speakers goes into the green outlet.. But I could be wrong.
So, yeah, I've lived with no sound for months now, and I'm going crazy. I don't have a CD player, I don't have an IPod.. All I have is my computer, and without it, I'm music-less. PLEASE HELP
Oh, and I don't get ANY sound.. Not even the little warning bleeps a normal computer should give. Don't they usually give those sounds without a sound card?
And, I've already reinstalled the OS, and that didn't help.
