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.

Thanks,
Amar

Bougth in my 2004 Compaq; work fine; Last week tried using no sound no recording.


It's possible your volume has been muted. Look down where your clock is, if there's a small speaker icon, click it once. A menu will pop up with the volume controls, and if the "mute" box is checked all you have to do is uncheck it. If the slider is at the bottom of the box, slide it up until you have sound.

If there is no speaker icon, do this: Click Start. Click Control Panel. Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. This will bring up the sound control, and you need to check the box beside "Place volume icon in the taskbar". Also, there's an option to mute the volume above that; uncheck the box if it's already checked. This will keep the speaker icon down by your clock so you can adjust the volume anytime.

If this doesn't solve your problem, check that your speakers are plugged into the right hole in the back of your PC (not in the microphone jack). There will be little pictures beside each of the jacks so you know which is which. And if your speakers themselves have volume knobs/buttons, make sure they're turned up.

If none of this is helping you, your sound card may have come loose or become defective, so you should have a professional inspect it and possibly replace it. But it's very, very likely that your volume is muted or your speakers are unplugged. You can try using headphones if you think your speakers may be defective!

Hope this helps!

Left click the volume icon in the system tray in windows.

A slider will appear which you can drag up and down to change the volume on the computer.

If the volume icon is not in the system tray, do this:

Go to Start->Control Panel
Pick Sounds and Audio Devices
Open the Volume tab
Tick "Place volume icon in taskbar"

Now you should have an icon in the taskbar.

If you cannot do this, then you do not have the proper sound card drivers installed and you computer will be playing no sound whatsoever, which is unrelated to your question.
