I had to reinstall NT a while ago and wiped everything off my C: drive.  The only thing I can't get back is the volume controls.  The CD player works, but I can't hear anything.  I go to MultiMedia in control pannel, but it says there are no mixer devices installed.  Nothing in the ADD list says mixer.  Can someone please tell me what to install or do?

Thanks,

David.

         Go to control Panel\multimedia\Midi.  Try to select different instruments there and see if that corrects your music problems.  If not, uninstall all of your sound drivers and reinstall the sound drivers.  To uninstall, go to Control Panel\multimedia\advanced and remove all drivers relating to your soundcard.  Reboot the machine and reinstall the drivers.  If this doesn't help, tell us what kind of soundcard you have.
