Windows 7: have a problem with the speaker

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
have a problem with the speaker


I was viewing a video with great sound but too loud, so I click the speaker icon in the system tray to lower the speaker sound, in the process I moved the icon to the tesk top, unintensionly. Since that time I lost the speaker icon, had a heck of a time getting it back the sound was not exotic, on board device on an ASUS motherboard. I have been jumping through hops trying to get it back, device manager does not show much for hardware on the mother board so I used the cd I got with the mother board, re-installed the drive for the on board sound, still dose not work. I checked the speakers on my lap top, they are OK. It got the icon back after I went into bios to make sure this on board device was stil enabled, OK. When i got back inco the comoputer I had a speaker icon in the system tray I clicked it to open the spkear, input, etc is listed, I found a way to set the displays to show a varying hight of sound so it appears that the sound card is delivering sound, however still no sound. As I said before the external speaker was checked on another computer so they are OK.

Does anyone have a suggestion. I think my actions with the icon at the top of my message caused this but cannot prove it.

Hello JM I am having a bit of a time trying to work out where the icon is now? At the right hand side of the taskbar there is the clock and power icon etc and a small upward pointing arrow > click on that it will open out into a small window > click on Customise > you will get a list of icons / features to add to the systems tray.

Click on the icon strip (blue when you hover over it) it will give you a list of options > pick the one you want > OK, and it should be back.
