    I have rebooted the computer and I noticed there was no Volume Control at the bottom right. I checked Sounds in Control Panel and it says there is no Audio Device?

    What can I do to get it back?

    When you click on the link I gave you choose Save and choose Desktop where to save it

    Then close everything and click on the file that you saved called Audiosvr.reg

    Then it will load into the registry then resatart the PC.

    Try reloading the audio drivers, is this onboard sound?
    Also try a system restore to an earlier time.
    If neither of these work, could be the sound has died, it happens sometimes

    How can I do system restore. I've only just rebooted?

    And I'm not sure what make my soundcard is...

    EDIT: Checked Device Manager and there's a ! next to Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus.

    ReBooted do you mean re-installed your Operating System.

    Did you get a CD with the PC with any drivers on them??

    If you are not sure what you have try this Utilty


    Make and Model of the PC would help.


    This will tell you what inside your PC.
