Hi.

I purchased a new computer (well second hand) and installed a fresh version of XP Pro on it. The computer now does not have sound or a volume control in the task bar. I assume the computer did have sound previously as there were a large assortment of video and music files.

When I search for volume control and click on them I get this message:
"There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices go to control panel, click printers and other hardware and then add hardware.

The program will now close"

On the side of the computer it has the following listed as its audio device:
Integrated Realtek ALC658 Digital Audio. Dolby 5.1 surround sound ready'


Anyway, i downloaded a Realtek ALC658 driver from google and still no use.

Help!

Right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Is there any devices with a red cross or a yellow exclamation/question mark?
