First, check the connections and make sure you have everything plugged in correctly. Restart the PC...try clicking on the icon again...if that doesn't work, post back and we'll try to figure it out.

My sound is muted on my monitor

you should have a button on the monitor to pop up a menu which will let u adjust the volume, also in the lower right hand corner of your computer screen look for an icon that looks like a speaker, right click this and you can adjust volume here or unmute, it maybe hidden and you may need to click the little arrow to reveal the speaker icon. Failing this go to Start Menu, Control Panel, Audio/Sound and find it here.

Volume is mute

There is probably a button or key you can press to unmute the volume. Most times you have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that has the megaphone with the x across it.

You could try right clicking on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume or properties. Remove the check mark from mute.

Or you can look for the Audio Sound properties in the Control Panel. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio Sound. Open it and remove the mute check mark if it is on the volume controls.

You need to update your sound drivers,to do this go to start menu on your computer and type in the word "device manager",select it from a list of options and click on it you will see a list of components/devices that are working with your computer select the "sound" component.

Click on it and you will see your sound driver,right click the sound driver and you will see a list of options select "update driver software" this automatically search for updates,download them and install it in your computer.

You will have to restart your system for the update to work properly.

Mic not working stilllll!

I'm not certain about yours, but my Acer Aspire 5920 has an audio/volume turn button, just under the lip of the laptop, just to the right of center. Even if you un-mute it, if the volume is turned down all the way - the button revolves, so looking a the front, turning it counter-clockwise will turn the volume down to off, and you won't hear a thing, no matter how much you try to un-mute the thing.
So turn that rotating button to the right, to make it louder, after you have un-muted a control panel volume slider and moved it up, and that just might make it work for you.
Good luck!

I was having a similar issue. My volume button worked fine muting and unmuting the volume, the light just stayed red either way.

I went into Device Manager, then expanded the Sound, Video and Game Controller options, I rolled back the driver and it was an instant fix for me :)
