Volume control disappeared

  Meshuga 20:32 26 Dec 2003

The volume control icon in my task bar has disappeared and the box in vol, control properties
where you put a tick to show the icon already has
a tick in it but is greyed out and the adjustment slider is at its lowest but cannot be moved.
Any suggestions gratefully received. Win ME in use. Meshuga.

re-install your sound drivers

also run sfc /scannow to replace any corrupted files

also check that your sound is being used by your sound card and not your modem

control panel/sounds and audio devices

hi, do you not what the motherboad/onboard or sound card is called

or even the manufactorer of the pc

drivers can be downloaded and installed if you know what the sound card is

goto control panel/sound and audio devices

click audio tab or something similar and it should say what sort of sound you have in there..

Thanks johnnyrocker but what is sfc/scannow.

  Meshuga 21:04 26 Dec 2003

[email protected]$?. The machine is a "Time" and in sounds and audio it shows as NVIDIA(R)nForce(TM)Audio.

Start, Run, type 'sfc/scannow', OK. It checks and restores damaged files. I'm not sure this works in ME, mind.

ME does not have sfc.
