Warning icon on Volume C:

Hi,

After a new Windows 7 installation on an old ThinkPad X220, I'm showing a warning icon (exclamation point on yellow triangle) on my Drive C:. Any ideas on what I should do to address this please?

Do you see anything unusual in Device Manager?

Only reference I could find was that it may be Bitlocker enabled. Go to Control Panel - Bitlocker Drive Encryption and see if it is enabled.

Here's an image of what appears in Device Manager:

I searched for Bitlocker inside Control Panel, but pulled up nothing. Is Bitlocker built into Windows 7?

Thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to help me!

Your chipset drivers should fix some of those,

Laptops and netbooks :: ThinkPad X Series laptops :: ThinkPad X220 - Lenovo Support (IN)

The Biometric is probably the fingerprint reader,

Have you done all your windows updates? I would make sure you check the optional updates for hardware related updates, possibly a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) driver.

I think I figured it out. It's a warning I get from Hard Disk Sentinel, telling me the condition of the hard drive.

Thanks Derekimo, I did get the chipset drivers and updated Windows!

For future reference, did you find out what does HD Sentinel trying to say? Is your drive started to go bad?

Volume icon has completely disappeared.
Alright guys, so all of the sudden the volume speaker icon disappeared from the notification area. No problem, I thought, as I went into Turn System Icons On or Off. Well, I get in there, and the button is grayed out. Any ideas, apart from reinstalling the sound drivers, which I've already tried?
