hello All and major Geeks!!!! im glad I found this place :( "sniffle" ):

small problem, I am about to throw my computer from the nineteenth floor of my apartment building, and was hoping that one or many could assist me with an audio problem that would prevent me from doing so, see music is my drug, and with out audio, I cannot listen to ANYTHING, I have been pretty much on edge this week after my old laptop betrayed me, and took my plugged in music player with it...ghaa... and the only resource I thought would be able to secure me with an abundance of noise to sooth my irritation would be a new computer. so i went and did my thing a day later it was brought to me, my life source, my beautiful music searching info box..... and now i wish it was dead.

so heres my problem..... when i go to volume control this dick wad of a message pops its ugly grey screen at me and says, -> there are no active mixer devices available.
okay so i install what looks like a promising thing as a driver for high definition audio bus on my cpu, and i still get the coded middle finger.

Iuninstall and reboot hoping that it would do something but no, it still holds a grudge at me.
It keeps giving me grief with a code 28 on high definition audio device , and ive tried installing different software, but for some reason, it stil hates me. the computers a IBM workin on lenovo. i also tried that microsoft fix it thing. "Diagnose and repair ;sound playback problems automatically"- my [bleep] it repared dittly squat,.
glad i found this place, any help would be freakin sweet.

Hi and :welcome: bananazack92
Have you checked the Device Manager for either a yellow ! or red X against the audio device?

Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Thanks to rshaffer61 for the PCPitstop instructions

You are allowed to download two drivers a day for free @ http://www.innovativ....com/drivermax/

Laptop with onboard audio from your description. Have you gone into BIOS to make sure the onboard audio is enabled?

Right click on the device and if it gives you the option to install the driver choose that option, let us know the result.

will PCPitstop.com work for xp???!

Yes just be sure to follow the instructions that I provided earlier.
