i can not get any sound out of my comp. i have replaced sound card and loaded new drivers (also tested both sound card and speakers and they both work) when i go to control panel and audio devices i am told the device is working properly and software is fine but no still no sound. Also i can not find the speaker icon that should be bottom left of the desktop. (i think maybe soud is muted)

Control Panel - Sounds and Audio devices - Volume tab - check that tick box in "place volume icon in the task bar" is checked.
Select Audio Tab and check volume settings from there.
On Sounds tab you can test the windows sounds.

when in Control Panel - Sounds and Audio devices - Volume tab is at minimum and i cant drag it. Also it wont let me tick box for 'show volume control on the taskbar'
