Go to Start > Control Paned > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume (Tab)
Check the box which says "Place the Volume icon in the Taskbar".

If this option is grayed and you can't place a tick on it then it means your Realtec Audio Driver needs to be re-installed properly.

Hi Tania,

This problem is a 'bug' in Windows XP operating system.

Follow these steps to restore your volume button:

  • Click on 'start' & select 'Control panel' from the menu.
  • Look for the icon named 'sound' in your control panel & click on this icon to open sound properties.
  • Look for the check box with the words: "Show volume control in task bar"
  • Remove the check from the check box & click on the "apply" button at the bottom right of the properties window.
  • Now click on the check box once more to add the check once again.
  • Apply the change by clicking "Ok" at the bottom of the properties window.
Your volume control should now be visible once again in your task bar.

Don't hesitate to respond should you have any further queries.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Repairing it


Get the updated version of the Device Manager from Philips website, and THEN run the repair. If your PC isn't recognizing the device, a normal repair is hard to do, so you have to follow my bootleg instructions:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

I'm sure you went to Control Panel, opened device manager, and and checkeck for any yellow checks for your
sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external. Did you forget?
