Volume mixer does not open.

Running windows 7 64-bit. Having trouble with opening my volume mixer. Does not open at all from taskbar or when i try from control panel>sounds. Ive tried looking up this problem on google, but I can never get mine solved. My speakers and headphones still work, but i need to take out the usb from the headphones each time i want to switch where the sound comes out from. Ive tried restarting my comp. Also validated files in sys32 folder from admin cmd. I just dont want to have to run a system restore to open this up.

Reinstall the sound drivers, and that may take care of the problem. Use the correct PC Vendor (or motherboard or sound card vendor) drivers as they are the preferred and usually work best drivers.

From your first post, you have to take out your USB headphones before it works. If this is the case, check the Default Playback device in the Sounds panel. If you want the speakers (and mixer), instead of the USB headset to work, without removing the USB headset, you may have to manually change the default playback device back to your "Speakers" (sound device).

I've seen USB headsets cause many different problems.
