You probably have to reinstall the audio drivers, go here to HP support, choose your operating system (XP, Vista etc), download and install the audio drivers. When the installation is complete restart the PC for the speaker icon to reappear in the system tray >>>>>>>>>

Good luck.

2. do you have bouth the the plug the goes to the pc going to right trs port? (it should be green), is it all the way in
3. if your speakers are self-powered... do you have the power cord plugged in?

device manager by gointo to start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, look under sound and video devices.. if you see an icon with a ! or ? you may have a driver issue.. reinstall the driver that came with the sound card or download a new driver from the manufacturer website... or try to do a windows update and look for an update for your sound card.

Microphone problem

If the speaker icon is in your system tray (next to your clock), then you can right click on it, then "Open Volume Control" and make sure your Microphone volume is up and that the mute (under microphone) check box is unchecked. If the icon is not there, you will have to check the box to show it in Control Panel > sounds and audio devices... You may have to go to options, then click on advanced controls to adjust the mic..
If that doesn't do it? You could update your audio driver.
Good luck.
