No Active Mixer devices available.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I have Windows XP Home Edition SP2, SoundMAX Integrated Audio, P-4 2.4 GHZ
Processor, 768 MG RAM, 80 Gb Harddrive, G-Force 5200 Ultra 128 Vid-Card.

Since aproximately two maybe three weeks ago I have gotten the following
error message whenever I try to access my Volume Control.

"There are no active mxier devices available. To install mixer devices, go
to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add
Hardware.

The program will now close."

Its described solution doesn't work.
I've checked device manage all drivers are updated and devices are working
properly.
I still get the same message.
Tried looking just about everywhere else for a solution, nothing has worked.
Need help.
