In short, I used an old restore disk that downgraded my computer and messed up the sound.
In long, I recieved a new computer a couple of months ago and it came with a Recovery disk, well my cable modem was flashing it's PC light at me, so I decided to restore the system to see if that would fix any of it. Well, when I put the new restore disk in, something went wrong and my computer would not boot up. It kept me on a black screen that kept TRYING to boot up the computer, but never did.
So, in frustration I put in my old restore disks from my previous computer, this fixed the issue of getting on the computer, but through this I downgraded my computer and messed up the sound. (Everytime I try to mess with the volume a pop-up tells me that I have no active mixer devices) I've tried using the new recovery disks time after time with no change.
System: Windows XP Home Edition - Model W3502
Recent Disk: System Recovery CD/DVD
Previous computer disk: Restore CD ver. 1.1 Models W2646
--I've spoken to 3 different technicians from eMachines and they havn't been able to provide me with ANY help at all.
I'd like to bring my computer back up to speed (upgrade it back to where it was when it was bought), and fix the sound.
Can anyone give me any help or tell me that I screwed myself over so I can have some clarification.
