Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab, check 'Place volume icon in the taskbar'.

What shows up when you open Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Can you move the volume slider there?

Hi, I've encountered a problem similar to yours, and while it may not be exactly the same, maybe this will help. I use a Realtek AC'97 onboard sound device. After windows automatically updated, I no longer had any sound. Even though if you use a different sound card, try this. Go into Computer Management and select Device Manager. Scroll down to Sound, video and game controllers. Locate your Sound device. Right click (or left click if you are left handed) and select Properties. Click the Drivers tab and then the Rollback Driver button. It took me a while to figure this out on my machine, but it was caused by a Windows update. Microsoft drivers tend to be garbage, and usually it's best to use the one that came with the PC or the Sound Card. Hope this helps.

This might be worth a try.

If your icons appear garbled or use the wrong images, your icon cache file may be corrupt. This file stores Taskbar, Desktop, Start menu, and program icons so Windows can display them quickly. The icon cache sometimes becomes corrupt after a system crash or installation failure. However, if you delete the icon cache, Windows automatically rebuilds a clean one. In Windows 98 and Windows Me, delete the hidden file ShellIconCache found at: C:\WINDOWS\ShellIconCache.

After deleting the ShellIconCache or IconCache.db icon cache files, close all windows and choose Shut Down from the Start menu. The next time you start your computer, your icons should be fixed.
