thanks all, but there is no speaker icon in taskbar, that's what i'm looking for. he has tried sndvol32.exe in the run command, but nothing happens. like i say, if he goes to accessories and entertainment, the sound icon is there, but nothing happens.
hi, no icons in the device manager, but i know what you're talking about, i've checked for that. drivers for system board have been installed twice already, uninstall install. all i can think of is it has somehow been muted. i have had this happen before.
