Can you still open Paint using START --> RUN and typing in 'mspaint'? And about the volume control, go to START --> CONTROL PANEL double click on SOUND AND AUDIO DEVICES, and in the VOLUME tab is the 'Place volume icon on the taskbar' checked? If it isn't check it.

Window cannot find 'mspaint'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.----That is what it says when I try to run paint.

I can't type the volume one but it says that It isn't installed and that I should go to control panel and install it.

Go to START --> CONTROL PANEL, double click on ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS In the Add/Remove Programs window, click on ADD/REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS. In the new window that appears, highlight [b]ACCESSORIES AND UTILITIES and click DETAILS. Then in the next window, highlight [b]ACCESSORIES and click DETAILS once again. In this new window, is the checkbox next to PAINT checked? If it isn't, check it and click OK. click OK to close the other windows that are open as well. Post in here your reply to this and we'll either continue trying to fix it or move on to your volume problem.

Glad to hear it! :tazz:

Now for your volume problem, since you just did a restore, it's possible that you dont have the drivers installed for your sound card.

To check this do the following:
  • Right click on MY COMPUTER
  • Select PROPERTIES
  • Click the HARDWARE tab
  • Click the DEVICE MANAGER button
  • Check to see if there are any items with a ? (if there is, report back here with exactly what it says.)
