volume Mix/sound Icon not showing.

Well, the Volume mix/ Sound icon in bottom right hand corner in the task bar, won't turn on! It is grayed out when I try to turn it on in notifications, I wish to be able to use this icon, but frankly, I can't. Please help me, I'm not that tech-y as most of you, I think you guys will show me a way to do this. I will explain furthermore if needed.
