I must have deleted something that has to do with sound & volume control... I can not use my mic either... I went into ctrl panel, then go to sounds & devices, then click on volume control, but I get a windows message saying that the volume control program is not installed and to go to add/rem programs, which seems, I can not install or select ANYTHING about sounds...

WHAT GIVES & WHAT CAN I DO... besides reloading WinXP...???

Windows 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.

To resolve this issue, extract a new copy of Sndvol32.exe from the Windows
XP CD to the system_root \System32 folder on your computer's hard disk. To
do this, follow these steps:

Start/Run/CMD. In the command prompt window type:

X: (where X is your CD Drive letter)
CD \I386

Then use the expand command:
expand -r sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32

Note: This assumes XP is installed on C: and that its installed in the
Windows folder. If not, you'll need to adjust the command accordingly.
Additionally, this must be an installable version of XP, not a "recovery
CD".
