Help! My volume control is gone!

Vista Home Premium
All of a sudden the volume icon is missing from task bar. I go to "Taskbar
and Start Menu Properties" and under System Icons/Select which system icons
to show and the choice for Volume is dimmed out and cannot be chosen. If it
makes any difference I went back to a system restore point yesterday - the
icon has ALWAYS been there so that shouldn't have affected it.

Re: Help! My volume control is gone!

Regardless of the volume control not being in your notification area,
are you getting any sound at all?

If not, might be worth going to "Progs & Features" and removing the
soundcard software/drivers (or better via device manager) and letting
Vista reinstall after a reboot.

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager and verify that the sound
controller is enabled.

See the following:

Re: Help! My volume control is gone!

this happens to me occasionally and i just restart the computer and it always repairs the issue. it just happened last night, but i restarted and the volume icon is back in the systray.
iv'e seen a lot of replies talking about drivers on similar threads but sometimes the answer is not that 'techy'
hope that helps

Re: Help! My volume control is gone!

I noticed this problem a few days ago as well. What seemed to of fixed
it for me was restarting the computer and then going into the system
icons (Right click taskbar> Properties>Notification Area>System Icons
and click volume. It was grayed out earlier but now it was enabled.
