My computer's giving the No active mixer error when I click for volume changes.. all my devices are working properly and I've tried restarting, disabling, enabling all that stuff..
I have a Everest Report if needed.

If anyone can help it would be awesome!

Thanks in advance


PS: I don't have drivers (any CDs) that came with the PC. This is a friends PC and I know nothing and have nothing of it but the PC itself. (Sony Vaio RB VGCRB30)
It seems I have to install mobo drivers or whatever else driver but I have not idea which one and where to get it from.

Hi plasmus! Welcome to GeeksToGo!

Go to START-->RUN and type devmgmt.msc. The Device Manager window will open. Are there any items listed that have a yellow ? or ! next to it? If so, please post those here.

On some systems you have to get special audio drivers from Microsoft before the device drivers themselves will install.

You can download the Audio Driver for your computer HERE. It is an EXE file, so once it's downloaded, just double-click on it and it will run. Just follow the prompts and reboot at the end, even if you are not prompted to do so. Once rebooted, your sound should be working again. :whistling:
