volume Mix/sound Icon not showing.

Q: volume Mix/sound Icon not showing.

Well, the Volume mix/ Sound icon in bottom right hand corner in the task bar, won't turn on! It is grayed out when I try to turn it on in notifications, I wish to be able to use this icon, but frankly, I can't. Please help me, I'm not that tech-y as most of you, I think you guys will show me a way to do this. I will explain furthermore if needed.

Preferred Solution: volume Mix/sound Icon not showing.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have reset explorer.exe and it pops back, but when I restart my laptop it does not show up again.

I have even gone into the registry and followed the instructions from this video on Youtube and it's still the same.

According to the Dell downloads for the 15R SE, this has Conexant audio. Suggest you download and install the driver from Dell, as the first step.

The sound icon is missing from the taskbar....how do you get it back?

A:Sound Volume Icon

Are your sound drivers properly installed. you can go to the properties of file explorer, then device manager to sure you have no red X's due to unknown hardware.

Do you have a default device set to audio out?

If you get sound, then go to Settings, System, notifications & Actions then click on Turn system icons on or off. If volume is off, turn it on.

Help someone please!!!

I have lost the volume icon on the task bar. When I go to Multimedia and Sounds in Control panel, it says that I dont have any sound driver. When I go to Start, Accessories, Entertainment and Volume. When I click on volume it does nothing. I have tried to restore back to when I know I had sound and it still does not bring it back. I am running windows ME. What can I do?

Thanks

A:No sound and volume icon has disappeared

Sounds like your soundcard driverh has been corrupted or is missing altogether.

look in device manager are there any devices that show a yellow question mark or yellow triangle next tot hem? if there is then you need to reinstall the drivers for your sound.

I dont understand why it just "vanished" from the taskbar. if anyone knows how to help, let me know! i would appreciate any type of help! thank youu

I came home today to find my computer has no sound. I also have no volume icon in the task bar. When I right click on the task bar to make the volume control visible - there is no option to do so.

Very helpful threads from others on the same problem I recently encountered, to date. I picked up some useful leads on restoring or re-doing the icon in the sys tray; but is there anyone that knows of way to restore it without the need or having to have the CD rom to do it?

I don't remember if I unticked or unloaded one of the components in that check list among the add/remove programs, but each and every time I go to tick the box under the properties of putting it or showing it up in the notification area it bams me with the message that the volume icon needs to be added to add/remove programs in control panel (oh yeah, but which one and how can I be directed more specifically because as I go there, there's no from that checkpoint, where to go next (?))

Windows XP Home SP2.
Pretty often clicking on my sound icon (Which IS present in the system tray), does not open the volume control slider. When this happens I go to Control Panel but Sound controls won't open from that location either. There's no way to control the volume and must reboot to get it back (temporarily, because it keeps happening).

Do I possibly need driver updates? If so, which one of these is my sound card?

Or is it an XP problem.

Recently the Volume Icon keeps appearing on my screen, and automatically increases the volume to 100%. I have not made any significant changes in my operating system. The Icon stands in front of all other screens and cannot be dismissed. It quits when it's ready after a few seconds. It pops up every 3-4 minutes or so. My drivers are up to date. I've tried disconnecting the monitor and reconnecting it. Turning it off and on, etc. So far nothing has helped.

Hello melb1946Does your keyboard have volume buttons? I know in my experiences I have sometimes run into similar scenarios. In my case the problem was accidentally hitting the volume button on my keyboard. How is your sound setup in Windows 7? Is your monitor set as the default sound device? Do other sound devices increase their volumes?Probably one of the best ways to isolate the problem would be to put the monitor on another computer and see if the sound continues to appear and go up.

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:



It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

Hello everyone,
There is a strange problem I am facing for quite a long time. Whenever I get connected to the internet using a dialup connection, the connection icon which used to come in the taskbar doesn't come. Also when I connect usb devices there is no device connection icon in the taskbar. The strange thing is that when I go to control panel and load "sound and audio device" and tick "place the volume icon in the taskbar", both internet connection icon and usb devices icon appear in the taskbar. Whenever I reboot the system, the volume icon disappears again, needing to re-tick the "place the volume icon in the taskbar" in the "sound and audio device". This is really annoying me. Kindly help me.

A:files not showing ,but volume is used on ex hd

Hi Rock66,

what do you mean you've tried to copy files from you CPU? Your CPU is the central processing unit ==> the core of you pc?

As far as I understand your question you are trying to copy files from your PC to a friends PC. You run Windows 7, he runs Windows 8.

This should not be any problem. So my guess is that the medium you copied the files to is corrupt (are you using an external HDD or a USB stick?)

Therefore my advise would be to FORMAT the medium using your Windows 7 computer with STANDARD SETTINGS!. Copy paste the requires files to the medium and then connect the medium to the Windows 8 machine. That should work!

Windows CD not required...it's the installation of audio drivers which results in volume icon being reflected.

I would uninstall the audio drivers/controller via Device Manager (Sound, Video and Game Controllers)...then reboot and reinstall the correct audio drivers for the system or motherboard (available for download at the appropriate manufacturer's website.

A:volume icon

Right click the task bar

Click "Properties"

At the bottom there's a button called "Customize..."

Click on it, and in there you can decide which icons XP should:

- Always hide (So you can hide an icon you only need sometimes)
- Always Show (For the volume, you want this)
- Hide When Inactive (when nothing is happening with this process, XP hides the icon.)

They are otherwise hidden behind an arrow. You can click this to expand it and view the icons.

To always view all icons, uncheck the "Hide Inactive Icons" check box in the "Properties" menu.

So now, when I want to re-enable it - I can't. Why? Because Banished does not show up in the Volume Mixer, meaning I cannot unmute it.

Select Troubleshoot sound problems, and then follow the instructions.

Hi there,

I installed Windows7 Ultimate x64 yesterday (clean, fresh install). Now the names of several partitions don't show in explorer anymore although they are correctly labelled (print screen). I tried to rename them via disk management and command line (DISKPART) - but no joy! It is quite annoying for me as I am used to these funny names; they are kind of an index for me. Does anybody have an idean why this happens. I couldn't find no common attribute that is unique for these partitions. I even have one disk with 1 partition name showing and the other not! They all appear as "Local Drive". It isn't a question of privileges neither: I activated the internal Administrator account for that matter.
Please help it's making me nervous; and that's bad for my mental health. lol

A:Volume labels not showing in explorer

I doubt it is anything to be nervous about, especially since you aren't having an issues, it seems. If I was over-partitioned like that, my mental health would be shot, though. Is it possible, because you have that many drive letters, that you aren't giving it enough time to intialize them? If it was me, I'd simplify and use directories, rather than partition the hell out of my drives like that.

Don't know what operating system you are using but most Windows work the same. I'm using Windows XP. Here's what I would check. Go to START, then CONTROL PANEL, double click SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES and see if there is a check mark in the PLACE VOLUME ICON IN THE TASK BAR box. If it's blank, click the box, and a check mark will appear and that should solve your problem

After that it stays in the task bar untill I have to restart the computer, and then once again it is no longer present in the task bar.

Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this issue?


Thanks

Silly question maybe but are you locking the taskbar?

Kelley's xp fixes are trustworthy. Scroll down on the left to 330. I have had good luck with his fixes.

My volume icon was missing from my task bar. I got an error message thats says "window cannot display the volume control on the taskbar because the volume control program has not been installed. To install it use add/remove programs in control panel".

Can someone please help me!

Thank you.

For some reason my Volume control icon in the task bar is gone. I can display it by going to the control panel and going thru the Display icon in tray from the sounds and audio, but when I reboot its gone again.

hi .. this makes me feel like i JUST got a computer lol .. but a month or so ago, i went to change the volume on my sound by the speaker icon in the tray and instead of hearing the traditional beep sound through my speakers, i heard a small muted kind of beep sound from inside my computer case ... *BLINKS*
the sound seems to work fine on most programs, except my mailwasher ... all sounds work when i go to control panel and sounds like to change something ... they all play ... but i just can't get the lever sound on the icon to sound when i raise and lower the lever .. it's driving me crazy! LOL
HELP!

thanks for your time!

Hi All
I keep losing my volume icon on the taskbar (WinXP) I go to control panel, sounds and it is ticked. I untick it then tick it again and back it comes! It isn't auto hidden, because I've turned that off. Not a major hassle, but if anyone knows why, I'd appreciate it.
regards

A:Volume Icon [Resolved]

Hello Denis, and Welcome to TSF!

There are a couple of ways to rectify this pesky critter (the Volume Icon) misbehaving, so lets try these two Steps....

(You will need your Windows? XP CD)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in the Drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting....

STEP One:
Now go Start > Run and enter these commands....(hit Enter after each command.)

cmd

Enter your CD/DVD Drive letter (I will use E: for this excercise.)

e:

cd i386

expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe

(Please note the space between the ex_ and the c:)

Once you hit enter this time you will notice that the file will be 'expanded by an amount of about 145%'.

When it is finished, type exit; remove the CD.

STEP Two:

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
2. Click Services and Applications.
3. Double-click Services.
4. Scroll down in the Services list, right-click SSDP Discovery Service, and then click Properties.
5. On the General tab, in the Startup type drop-down list, click Disabled.
6. Click OK.

Close all windows and reboot the computer.

Upon restart, all should now be normal (hopefully).

Post back with the results, and if there are any other queries/concerns.

Kind Regards,

I would like help with the Windows Vista, volume icon disappearing as I already have a problem with the volume bar in hardware and therefore cannot view the volume level.
The icon disappears frequently for a day and then reappears.

Volume icon has disappeared from notification area. In control panel, under "Notification Area Icons", it is not there. When I click on the "Turn notifications on or off", it is greyed out and can't be accessed.
I saw a thread to download a "reg" file to turn it on, and it hasn't worked.
Any other ideas?

Hello moebeech, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to make sure that you have your audio drivers installed, then see if using step 9 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below may be able to enable your Volume icon.
