Hello,

Try this 1.

Click on Start --> Run --> Type services.msc and click on OK.

Services windows will be opened. Now scroll down for "Windows Audio".

Make sure its status is "Started". If its not started then to change its status.

Double-click on "Windows Audio" --> Set "Startup type:" to "Automatic" and click

on "Start" --> Click on OK.


Good Luck.

Hello,
Try this 1
Regarding the "cpu have been changed ", go to BIOS --> Load default settings --> Save & Exit from BIOS.
Regarding the "Active Mixers", try reinstalling your audio drivers. You can download the drivers from your manufacture's website.
Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
Try clearing CMOS settings.
Turn OFF your computer --> Remove the Power chord --> Open the cabinet --> Look for CMOS battery --> After few minutes, place the CMOS battery back on the motherboard --> Connect your power chord --> Switch ON your PC.
Click on the below hyperlink "CMOS Battery" if you don't have any idea about the CMOS battery
CMOS Battery
Good Luck
