Re: How to add volume control
To resolve this problem, from the Windows XP CD, extract a new copy of the file sndvol32.exe in the system_root \ System32 folder on the hard drive of your computer. Proceed as follows:
- Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Hold down the SHIFT key when you insert the CD-ROM to prevent it from starting automatically.
- Click Start, then Run.
- In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
Type the following lines at the command prompt, pressing ENTER after each line, where CD-ROM refers to the letter of your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM that contains the Windows XP CD-ROM and is the path SystemRoot access and on behalf of the folder where the Windows system files (usually C: \ Windows):
expand sndvol32.ex_ SystemRoot \ system32 \ sndvol32.exe
For example, if the letter E represents the CD-ROM drive of your computer and the folder containing the Windows system files is C: \ Windows, type the following lines at the command prompt (pressing ENTER after each line):
sndvol32.ex_ expand c: \ windows \ system32 \ sndvol32.exe
- Type exit to quit Command Prompt.
- Verify that you can start Volume Control and the Volume icon appears in the notification area (if you selected that option).
