go to control panel->sound and audio devices-> in volume tab see that "place volume icon in the taskbar" is checked. then you'll get your icon back in task bar.

generally this is due to ground problem, signal gnd and power gnd need to be separate (i faced the same problem even i dint do anything from hardware side .. don ask me hw it happned).. open the volume controller u will find a small PCB (printed circuit board) with volume control ,LED and a connector. see at the back side of the voume control u will see five pins starting from right side short 1st and fourth pin. provided you connect ground of both cables which goes inside the volume controller.. it works for me.. you may experiment as i did...

Congrats, you yourself is a good troubleshooter. Just pinpointed your problem. What you just diagnoist can be easilly checked just by taking other good known speaker. If that works your speaker is short check for audio output wires. If not your card needs replacement. If need further clarifications just comment.

Speaker level really low


you have to make sure you increased the volume on the computer itself.go to the control panel and click on sound,speech and audio devices.change the volume settings and speaker settings.this should bring about the desired result.

The volume of my speaker is so low, i cant barely hear it, i cant see anything wrong with it, i checked the AC in, i checked the jack for any short circuit still iget a very low volume out of the speaker...


look on the lower right corner of your screen. there should be a volume icon down there. it looks like a speaker. click that and see if it is set up or down low. if it is low turn it up then it should work. this controls the amount of sound coming out of the sound card on your computer.
