Re: volume icon

The first thing to try is go to Control panel and click on Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. On the Volume tab, put a check mark on the box that says Place volume icon in the taskbar. If the check mark is already there, then its possible that your audio driver is not installed correctly. In this case, reinstall audio driver, make sure you have the right driver for your audio device. Download from manufacturers web site if necessary. Good luck.

How do i apply my volum icon to my computer

I am providing the solution by keeping in mind that the sound card driver for your computer has been installed and you want the volume icon to be placed in taskbar.

Please go to control panel -> Sounds and Audio devices -> Volume Tab. You will find the checkbox mentioning "Place volume icon in the taskbar". Check the box and click on apply.

You will be able to see the volume icon in taskbar.

Have only realtec audia manager but can find my normal volume botton anymore on my home pc

Hi Tania,

This problem is a 'bug' in Windows XP operating system.

Follow these steps to restore your volume button:

  • Click on 'start' & select 'Control panel' from the menu.
  • Look for the icon named 'sound' in your control panel & click on this icon to open sound properties.
  • Look for the check box with the words: "Show volume control in task bar"
  • Remove the check from the check box & click on the "apply" button at the bottom right of the properties window.
  • Now click on the check box once more to add the check once again.
  • Apply the change by clicking "Ok" at the bottom of the properties window.
Your volume control should now be visible once again in your task bar.

Don't hesitate to respond should you have any further queries.

Best wishes,

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

My computer will no longer play music or any kind of noise

Check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack either in your sound card or the sound panel on the motherboard. If no sound then try plugging speakers into another computer and see if they are working and have power. Go to "control panel" and click on "Sound and Audio Devices" and under the volume tab under Device Volume make sure that the "Mute" box isn't checked. Also check the "place Volume icon in the taskbar" box if it isn't already checked. Go to the Volume control on the task bar and check out the audio volume levels and make sure they're not turned all the way off. Also under "Sound and Audio Devices" underl Volume tab click on "Advanced" and make sure that you have selected the proper kind of speakers in the speaker setup box.

YOu didn't say so, so I'm assuming that you're using Windows XP. If you're not the menus may be a little different but similar.

if you are getting volume icon on task bar then dbl click it and increase the outputs by scrolling up. If you can't see the volume icon then go to control panel sounds and audio devices if you see everything disabled under volume tab then you need to re-install your sound card driver.
