Windows has a volume control built in, look at: control panel, sound and audio devices, volume control slider and check box for "place volume icon in task bar.

    Laptops have integrated soundcards, right off the motherboard. I have looked at a few and they are indeed not plug and play like a desktop computer. You may be able to remove the cover and see where the knob broke off and it may possibly be on a daughterboard (small board attached to the motherboard by a ribbon cable) that can be detached, but I doubt that you will be able to find replacement unless you go on Ebay and find someone parting a like model out.

Volume control knob broken on front of Toshiba Satellite M45 S2692 laptop. no sound now at all from laptop???

This cannot be fixed any way other than repairing the knob or short circuiting the contacts where the potentiometer used to be (not recommended) as your volume will be on full all the time although you could use windows to software turn it down. because if you are going to do that, it wouldnt be much more work to replace the knob.
