Hello MSwhip,

You could use the tutorial below to double check to see if you have the Volume icon turned on if it's not grayed out.
System Icons - Turn On or Off
If the Volume option is grayed, then see if you may be able to enable it using the tutorial below.
System Icons - Enable or Disable
Hope this helps,
Shawn
