How to unmute the machine - no sound at all


Usually the sound on the OS is directly tied into the physical sound controls on the laptop.
Most new laptops now-a-days have keys called FUNCTION keys which are usually represented by light blue icons on other keys.

Look for the FUNCTION keys associated with the sound (think speakers, +/- etc)
You should find some keys somewhere (usually number keys) that have these blue icons,
you should also find 1 or 2 FN keys (usually near the left CTRL/ALT keys)

Hold down the FN key and press the MUTE key or the + key several times.

Still nothing? Try changing the volume in windows (double click the speaker icon in the system tray, no speaker icon? is it hidden? expand the system tray by press the little area inside of it.)

STILL nothing? Make sure your sound device is working properly.
Easiest way to check this is (VISTA/7) click START and type in Device Manager, (XP right-click MY COMPUTER, then PROPERTIES, then the HARDWARE tab then DEVICE MANAGER button)

Sound controllers has it's own section, if your sound card has an icon next to it try reinstalling the device drivers and rebooting.

STTTIIILLLL nothing? Speakers may be broke or even a BIOS setting (complicated)

Why did the icons desappeared?


There are reasons why the icons of your computer disappeared.

1. It could have been hidden if the "Show Desktop Icons" has been disabled.

You can check the settings when you right click on your desktop, and select arrange icons by.

2. Or the virus could have modified your registry settings so the icons disappeared.

Can't turn volume down!


Go into your sound devices from the control panel. You should be able to raise & lower the volume from there as well as putting the volume icon back into your system tray. Hope this helps.

Volume cannot be changed.Full Volume even if reduced or muted


You need to first find out what chipset your on-board card uses my friend. Check all the documentation to find out. You will need the exact set. Now search the net for an updated set of drivers that matches your operating system (XP SP1/2 etc). Now go to device manager and delete anything which has sound connections (MIDI Interfaces, MICs etc..). Now click the 'scan for changes' icon in device manager. Use the new drivers you downloaded.

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.
