This will bring your icon back.

I am having problems adjusting volume


What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

For Windows Xp this is the procedure to turn it ON.

Here you will get a window where you will find all the sound related options.Here you will beable to modify the volume levels and check whether the mute checkbox is ticked, if yes then uncheck the box and click on OK.

your problem should be resolved.

Volume icon keeps disappearing from system tray


Volume Control - The volume icon does not appear in the notification area (system tray)
Go to Start/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices.
On the Volume Tab under Device Volume, put a check in the box that reads: Place volume icon in the taskbar.(Classic View)

If that has been tried:
Place your XP CD in then go to Start/Run and type in:
EXPAND -R X:\I386\powrprof.dl_ C:\Windows\System32 (X- is your CD location)
Once done: Go to Start/Run and type in: regsvr32 stobject.dll

How to undo mute


There is a mini loudspeaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen (system tray)
double click the icon - a box with all the components of the sound system will pop-up (Master Volume)
Untick any of the mini boxes along the lower part of the box that have a tick in them (click on the tick will 'untick' it - click on empty box, 'ticks' it)
That is the easiest way. BUT if you can't find the icon... Go to Start - Control Panel - Sounds & Audio Devices
Double click that Icon and in the window that opens... You will see two mini boxes Mute and Place volume icon in System tray Untick Mute and Tick Put icon....
Simples...

Can't turn volume down!


Go into your sound devices from the control panel. You should be able to raise & lower the volume from there as well as putting the volume icon back into your system tray. Hope this helps.

On the lower right corner of my screen usually next to my battery meter and clock used to be my volume control. but now its gone and i dont know how to get it back, can anyone help?


Hello,

Go to start, up to control panel. Look for sound and multimedia icon or sound and audio devices icon ( depends of windows version) Click on it. A new box will open on your screen, on the volume tab is a check box for "Place volume control on taskbar" be sure it is checked. Exit the screen and your volume control should be back.
