This is driving me insane! yesterday I somehow lost the ability to controll the system volume from anywhere. I have vista home premium and just a cheap soundcard nothing special. Ive tried uninstalling the device and reinstalling . Also I use a program called Volumouse which allows me to controll volume by scrolling up or down on taskbar, I have also uninstalled this. The only thing I can do is mute. Also I believe the soundcard is Cmedia if that helps at all Thanks in advance.
P.S. I am posting this here because I do not believe this is a hardware problem as the speakers work perfectally in both the sound card audio jack as well as the onboard but the volume problem remains.

Hi

Go to your sound/audio devices in start\control panel & there should be an option to place the volume control in the task bar, probably under the volume tab

If none of these work, navigate to c:\windows\system32 right click on the file Sndvol32.exe & choose send to - desktop create shortcut.
this will put a shortcut to your volume control onto the desktop.

I think you have misunderstood the volume controll showed and i was able to move it but it didnt change anything. I have also since found out that I could turn the volume down or up in specific programs but not the master volume. I couldnt explain it however I have since solved the problem simply by removing the sound card, uninstalling all traces of drivers, reinserting and installing a slightly earlyer driver for the card. this for some reason completally removed the problem. Thanks for your help anyway. If this happens again im taking a brick to that soundcard.
