I have a problem with the sound on my PC. Windows claims that no mixer device is available. The volume control is gone from the taskbar, and the options in the sound control panel tabs for sound are disabled (greyed).
I have an HP Pavilion running win xp and Realtek AC 97 integrated sound card. I have reinstalled the drivers for the soundcard (successfully) and it didn't help. The device manager reports that all sound devices are working properly.
While Windows-applications (media player, skype and so on) do not recognize that there is a sound system on my PC, the game "Rollercoaster Tycoon" plays sounds beautifully as soon as i selected "Realtek AC 97" as preffered sound device in the game's setup. So I guess the sound card and the speakers are just fine :cool:
Have browsed the forums without being able to solve my problem, anybody with a good idea?
Thanks - Knut
