To bring back the volume icon in your tray

Go to Control Panel
Open "Sounds and Audio Devices"
under Volume Tab check the "Place volume icon in the taskbar".

This will bring your icon back.

I cant hear any sound from the built in speakers

Ensure that the system volume is turned up and not muted. There should be an icon for the volume controls in your system tray at the bottom right of the screen. Or you can click on Start > Control Panel > Sound.

My Cousin Put The Volume On Mute And And Now We Cant Turn It Back Up.

Bring your mouse cursor down to the bottom right of the monitor screen. Click on the blue circle with the white arrow in it to reveal your system tray icons. Right-click on the Volume icon. Looks like a speaker. Click on Adjust Volume Properties.

Run windows update, then follow the directions below.
First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
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.

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.

Volume icon

Go to Start, Control Panel, Sound and Audio Devices and place a check mark in the box that says Place volume icon in the taskbar.
It will be in the lower right hand corner of your desktop by the time.

Sound problem

If you're talking about Windows XP, the volume control is available from the Control Panel under Sounds and Audio Devices; place a check-mark by the Place Volume in Task bar.

If you don't have Win XP, you can try to reinstall your sound icon by going to Control Panel -> Add / Remove Programs, Windows Setup tab and then double click the Multimedia icon and place a checkmark on Volume Control. If it's already there, take the checkmark off, then click OK. Then go back in again and place the check mark on.
This will hopefully reset it.
