  1. Hello,

    I bought a second hand PC that didn't work, with a new hard drive it does now. But there's no sound and if i click on the volume control it says there's no mixer, I'm only using the monitor for sound, by the way. I have tried installing fresh nForce 2 sound drivers to no avail. Any suggestions?

    CD-Rom Drive : ATAPI CD-RW 52XMax

    a dxdiagnostic tool screen will open,

    at the lower part of the screen,click "save all informations".

    a report will be generated in notepad,save it to your desktop

    and attach the file/report to your next reply.
