My audio used to work fine until someone took out my USB sound card and plugged it back in. I used to have problems with my audio, that's why I got the sound card, but now every time I try to open the volume control, it says "There are no mixers available"...I've tried all possible solutions like turning audio on automatic start, etc. but I can't seem to find a solution. Here is a report of my computer info. and my audio devices list (attached) .

I don't see an attachment.
Did you try different USB ports? Did you try the device on a different PC to see if it works there?

I don't have a USB sound card...but it seems to me that drivers still would have to be installed in order for the device to work properly.

What's the manufacturer/model for the sound card?

Did you try to reinstall the drivers for the usb audio device?
As Louis asked, "What's the manufacturer/model for the sound card?"

Did you try to plug in or install this device on a different PC to see if it gets detected at all? I fear the usb port masher may have struck.
