My volume control doesn't appear

  aph 20:41 14 Feb 2004

IN WIN2000

I previously had sound but now I don't get any from my speakers.

When I try to select the 'Volume Control' from the start/programs/accessories/entertainment
I get the message

"Volume Control

There are no active mixer devices available. You may install mixer devices from the Add/Remove hardware wizard in Control Panel

this application will now exit"

When I go to Control Panel I see the MultiMedia Audio controller has a Yellow ? by it
When I click next I get the message

The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28)

Is there a default driver I can download from somewhere ?

Go to Add /remove progs. in Control panel. Click on Windows Setup, a list should appear, scroll down to Multimedia. You can then re-install the drivers from your Windows disk.

click on install driver,then if you dont have a cd with it on,you will have to get it to search in windows.if you dont have it on your pc,or on a will have to find out if you have onboard sound or a sound card,when you have found this out you will have to go to the web site for your sound card or motherboard,if it is onboard,then download and install the driver.
