Re: Sound icon in lower task gar has a red x through
You need to reinstall the audio driver.

Check to see if you a speaker icon in the lower r/h side of the task-bar down by the clock.
If the icon is not there right click on a blank area of the task-bar and left click 'properties'
Left click 'customize'
Scroll down to 'Volume' and select 'Show icon and notifications "
Close the 2 properties pop-ups.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices'
The 'sound' pop up will appear showing whatever you have connected ( speakers or headset etc)
Make sure the speakers are set as default if you have more than one sound device connected.
The speakers should have a green tick (check ) when they are ready to use
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'Open volume mixer"
Check that the volume slider is above 50% and the speakers are not muted (shown as a red no-entry sign on the speaker icons at the bottom of the sliders' If muted click on the slider speaker icon.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices' Put the cursor on the blue graph to the right of the icon, right click and select 'test' All being well the computer speakers will respond.
Check the volume icon at the clock in the task bar, does it have a red ring and line through it? If so it's muted. If not you'll need to open your volume settings and check the master volume is turned up.
If the speaker icon isn't there, go to control panel and click in sounds to find the volume adjuster
Do you get sound through the headphones, if yes! buy electronic contact cleaner and flush the earphone jack, working the plug back and forth as you spray the jack, hopefully that will bring the sound back through the main speakers, if no! check speaker icon in lower right "task bar"does it have a red stripe going through it, if yes! locate the speaker icon from F1 to F12, when you find it, press and hold Fn key and press F key that the speaker icon is on, should restore sound.
1) Check the task bar sound icon mute active or not (Tick mark view on mute box)
2) Sound icon not in task bar check device settings. 3) Go control panel > System > Hardware > Device manager 4) Sound, Video, game controllers view problems. 5) Re-install Sound card driver.
Left click on the icon. volume bar will appear vertically above the icon. Below the volume scale is another icon that looks like the one one on the task bar. Left click it once and it will un mute the sound.
The first thing to check are the speaker plugs. Depending on the options of your tower there could be up to six different plugs on the back of the tower. Usually the green colored plug is for audio out. Also check all the connections on the speakers for anything not plugged in correctly.
Next right click the speaker icon in the task bar. The task bar is located in the lower right hand corner of the display. A small window will open giving you 2 choices. Left click "Adjust Audio Properties". If you cannot locate it in the task bar then left click the "Start" button, left click "Control Panel" then double left click the "Sound and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the "Mute" check box is not checked.
If you still have no sound then click on the "Hardware" tab on the "Sound and Audio Devices" window and left click the "Properties" button. This will open another window.
In this window under "General" tab check to see if it says "This Device Is Working Correctly". If not click the "Driver tab on this window. You will be given a choice to "Update The Driver" . Clicking this button will check for any updates to the sound driver.
If you still are without sound your problem may be a bad speaker wire or cable. I hope this helps.
Start --> Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure it is picking up the sound card and tick the box to show the icon in the task bar. Click apply then open the sound control from the task bar and make sure nothing is muted.
