    Hi,
    I've had my speakers for a few months, same with my PC and they've worked fine. A few days ago though I have been unable to get sound on the internet. The normal windows sounds work fine, and online game sound works fine but I can't get sound on anything in windows internet explorer, such as youtube videos.
    I've tried opening the sound audio properties but when i click it 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 click Add Hardware.

    This program will now close."

    I've got speakers attached and they work as i get the normal windows sounds and i can hear sound from online games.

    Aswell as this I am unable to play music on itunes, and when opening itunes i get this error message:

    "Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."

    Go to your control panel - click on Administrative Tools - then Services - then go down your list until you find Windows Audio - and click on left side - Start this service.... then close everything up.
