    Make sure the option "Place volume icon in the task bar" is checked.

    Select Start, Control Panel, Sounds, Speech, and Aduio Devices, Sounds and Audio Devices, and Place volume icon in the task bar.

    Assuming you are running 98. Maybe this

    control panel>dbl click multimedia. In components box put check mark next to volume control. OK.
