  1. Hi,

    i just bought a new hard drive for my Dell Dimension 9100 and i installed Windows Xp Professional on it..

    I have recently found out that i do not have sound at all...

    I dont even have volume control icon on the icon tray....

    i tried to open up the volume control from the start menu and it gave me the error " There are no active mixer devices availiable. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, then click Add Hardware."

    "This Program will now close."

    maybe do i have to install drivers for my sound card? i dont even know if i have a card...

    Thank you,

    Zrak
