On my Dell laptop, powered by Windows XP.........when I raise the volume, the little display bar that is supposed to show up at the bottom of the screen is not there.

I looked on my other computer (I use Windows ME on this one) and the control for that feature is under "keyboard control" and you just check a box that says, "Enable multimedia buttons". This box is not included in windows XP under the keyboard properties. Is there another way to add this feature to my laptop?

It's usually put there by the sound card driver for that particular PC. Not all have it.

Try in control panel in XP Sounds and Audio Devices >Volume> check put a volume control icon in taskbar.

I don't need help putting the volume control icon on the taskbar.....its already there and I use it all the time. :rolleyes: There is a light green line that goes across the bottom of my home computer when I raise the volume. Its kinda neat because you can see so simply when the volume goes up and down.

I think Kiwiguy was right. Especially on a laptop, they don't have all the extra programable "extra" buttons to configure.

This is the volume display bar I'm talking about. Its light green and goes across the screen according to how high the volume is turned up or down.
