Goto your my computer
and then got the control panel
select sounds and audio devices from the list
make sure that it has "place volume icon in the task bar" checked
got to the audio tab on the top tabs
make sure that your device setting all have for example "realtek ac97 audio" as the default device and is not blank.

if that does not work go back to the control panel and click on system.
click on the hardware tab and then goto the device manager.
when the list comes up goto "sound,video and game controllers"
expand it and make sure there is nothing that looks like it shouldnt.

Close everything your speaker should be down in the bottom right hand corner now and then you can adjust your levels from there if you are having more issues then your sound drivers might need to be installed again on your computer.

hope that helps let me know if you have any issues with understanding this im half asleep and not sure if its good enough or not but should do the trick.

How do I get my sound to work on my laptop


Anonymous - Depending on your type of laptop, there may be a volume wheel on the side of the laptop or a speaker Icon on the bottom of the screen to click and adjut. It may be that it is missing. Right click near the Time on the bottom right of the screen and select Properties. From this window you can check to make sure the Sound icon is set to ON or Restore Defaults near the bottom. Hope this helps.

Hi at the bottom of my screen i use to have a volume icon and i could click on it to say how high/low i wanted it but for some reason it has disapered and i got to the control panel to change it and it...


@georgia_9

If the volume icon is just missing, try the following:

For Windows 7
1. Right click on the System Time at the notification area (bottom right hand side) and choose Properties. It will then give you a window for the System Icons, check Volume on the list and click ok and that should fix it.

For Windows Vista
1. Right click on the Taskbar, choose Properties
2. Go to the Notification Area Tab then check Volume then hit Ok.

If the above troubleshooting steps still won't work, try this guide.

Good luck.

The volume control is not working.


First verify you see a small sound icon or in the Systray (generally at the bottom right hand corner of your screen). If this icon is missing follow the below section.
Windows XP

  1. Open the "Control panel"
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.

Volume control is missing


I am going to guess that you are talking about the volume control button on the bottom right hand side of the screen right? Did you recently install a new operating system or upgrade? No worries either way! Returning the volume control slider to the bottom right hand side of the screen is an easy task. I will walk you through it.

To return the volume control to the desktop screen, we need to go into the control panel. If you already know how to get to the control panel, please go there and find the ICON that says "sounds". If you don't know how to get to the control panel, follow these steps:

(Please note that the instructions below are for a person with the classic taskbar set up only)

Go to start at the bottom left side of your screen and click on it. Then slide up to "settings" and move to the right until you see control panel and click on it.

In the control panel, locate the ICON that says "sounds" and click on it. You will find the volume control option locate here. Make sure that sounds are enabled. You should see a choice in your current scound sceme that says something like "windows default" or similar.

Hope this helps?

Hp Pavillion a1140n suddenly has very low sound...


chances are this is a windows sound setting. in the system tray (bottom right by the clock) right click the speaker icon and select 'Open Volume Control' you will see a series of sliders. Check and make sure none are set low. about 3/4 up for each should be fine.

Other things to check:
Speaker Cables, Speaker Volume, power to speakers.

Sound card problerm


Here's your GEEK-steer, from GEEKinator, the GEEKster ...

I'm presuming that the sound is actually working, and the missing icon is your only problem. If so, then there's no problem with your sound card.

I also presume you mean it's missing from your system "Notification Area" (aka "system tray"/"systray" located on the bottom right next to the clock on your "Taskbar").

If you're refering to your actual sound card GUI's (graphical user interface) icon:
  1. Open its program (should be somewhere in your list of program shortcuts within your Start button menu.
  2. Find the configuration area within that program that toggles on/off the icon you're missing, and viola!
If you're referring to the Windows "Volume" icon:
  1. Open "Sounds and Audio devices" in your list of "Control Panel" items.
  2. Check mark "Place volume icon in the taskbar" found on the "Volume" tab, and viola!
NOTE: You may need to restart (reboot) for the change to take effect.
