Re: volume mixer comes up 'no audio output device is installed'
Hi,

First of all, are your speakers connected via USB or via a 3.5" audio jack (lime green for stereo speakers)?
If they are USB speakers you may have to install a specific driver that should have come on a CD with the speakers. The built in audio should really be working on a brand new PC unless you have faulty hardware.

Go to Start - Control Panel - Classic View - Device Manager.
Can you see any yellow exclamation marks here? Look under USB controllers and under sound video and game controllers.
