Inspiron 6000: No Sound On Volume Control

  • I recently had to reconfigure my laptop. Once completed, I download all the drivers I believe I needed. I wanted to listen to a file but recieved the following message.
     
    "There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware.
     
    This program will now close."
     
    I've done some research and it all seems to be leading me to download a sound driver. This would explain why I am not getting sound, but I'm not sure which device I need to use.
     
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
     
    Regards,

  • After doing some more research I have a solution:
     
    1. Download the recommended audio device for your laptop
    2. Go to Control Panel - Sound Control - Audio
    3. Change the default sound from 'Desktop Audio' to 'Laptop Audio'
     
    Happy Audio Listening...
