Volume control icon dissappeared

Hi. After uninstalling a few programs, a few settings in my inspiron 6400 got screwed up. Im now trying to fix them one by one. One of these is the Volume control that appears on the lower right corner when you adjust the volume. It wont come up anymore. Can anyone tell me how to get it back up, or how to revert to the original computer settings (which would be even better) Thanks in advance!

    No guys the problem remains, I've noticed its not only with the volume, but other icons that should appear when i use the hotkeys (hotkeys are working), for example, when I lower the brightness a sun icon usually came up to show me how bright it is, its not anymore.

Open Control Panel, Open Sound & Audio Devices. Click the Audio tab. Check what device is listed, Sound playback device? Click the Voice tab, it should list the same device. You can reinstall the driver software from the Dell download site listed below. Fact all your drivers here are listed.

Every file you install uncompress it's self & creats it's own folder inside the main folder located on your drive named Dell. Keep this in mind because windows may loose the path to a driver. You will have to show windows where the driver files are. Now your armed with that knowlage (just in case).
Luck!

    So when you open control panel & open Sound & Audio devices the check mark is checked to place volume icon in the taskbar? While your there see if a device is listed in Audio & voice? Lastly, I'd like you to open System listed in control panel. Click on the Hardware tab & than click on Device manager. Notice any yellow ! ? Post your answers.

The volume won't work anymore, it says the audio device supported by this application is not detected, the application will exit. was working grand yesterday


Hi,
it,s saying the audio Device used by this Application ( Program )
Is not detected.
The problem most likely is with the program i.e media-Player, Cyberlink Power DVD Et,c.
uninstall and re-install your Audio/Music Application.
Also check the devices/Drivers are not corrupt or not installed.

External Mike not working


Try this:

Double click on the volume icon on the system bar (lower righ corner, asuming you are using windows), this will display the volume controls. Now, click on Otions -> Properties and select "Record", MAYBE you will need to change the Mixing Device in order to do this, click on accept or ok and the volume panel now contains the recording volume controls, check the silence mark ys not checked for the mic, adjust your volume settings if needed. Good Luck!.

To get the original volume config, just do the same selecting the play option.

No sound on my computer


FIRST try the simple solutions. Check if your speaker wires are plugged into the proper ports.
If you are unsure, it won't hurt to try different configurations.
(If you hear sound from other devices such as playing a CD or the "Microsoft Sound" when starting up or shutting down, then the speakers are wired correctly.)
If this is OK then try...
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a yellow "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'speaker' icon there is your problem! Missing or corrupt drivers.
If no "Warning" icons then try...
Click on the blue icon on the second row, (it looks like a large key in front of a monitor) that says "Scan for hardware changes" when you hover your mouse on it.
One at a time...
Double click on each of the devices that have 'Audio' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons.
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the "remove" button, follow the instructions given by the program.
(This uninstalls the DRIVERS)
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.

Volume


In this situation, I recommend you to uninstall the HP Quicktouch application from the Programs and Features which is found in the Control Panel in Vista by following the instructions below:
Go to Control Panel and double click the Programs and Features icon.
In the window that appears, locate the application with the name HP Quicktouch or Quicktouch and click on the Uninstall button.
This will uninstall the Quicktouch application from the Notebook because of which we get the indicator when we increase/decrease or mute audio in the Notebook.
Now, restart the Notebook and download the latest version of HP Quicktouch application from the link provided below and install in your Notebook :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38358.exe

NOTE : Clicking on the link may give an error message. Copy entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new web browser and press Enter.

Please save the file in the Notebook and double click it after the download completes to install the drivers.

The display that appears while adjusting the volume using the Quick Launch buttons should dissappear correctly after installing this application.
However, if the issue with the Volume Display persists, I recommend you to uninstall it and not to reinstall it again.
Hope this helps...
