for some reason my computer doesn't have volume. it makes a noise when i do caps lock, however it is no longer in the taskbar. when i looked at the settings for it in the list of taskbar programs, it was in the list of things that are no longer there. also, there is a shield with an X on it. there was no way to drag it back up. this is a major issue because this is my sisters laptop and she needs it back soon and i need to fix it. anywho, is there anyone out there who knows a sure way it can work because i've tried a lot of things and it just isnt working.

Does your computer play any sound at all?

Right click 'My Computer' and select 'Manage' then 'Device Manager'. Are there any exclamation or question marks? If so double click the line with the !/? and what does it say in the middle of the box?

Search for the file on your computer by name. Sometimes they are not located where your computer expects to find them and you have to tell it where to look.

If the file is there type the path to the folder where the file is located in the box at the bottom of the popup.
