Problem with Windows XP Professional. There is no speaker icon on taskbar, and no sounds emit from computer such as at startup, or alerts, etc. however CD-Rom does play. All connections seem to be in order.

On this version of Windows XP, there is only one drop down on Control Panel, name Display.

Regards

Hi waynf!

Go to START-->CONTROL PANEL. In the new window that appears, double-click on SOUND & AUDIO DEVICES. In the new window that appears, check the box for Place volume icon in the taskbar. Click APPLY and OK. The sound icon should now appear in the systray.
