Windows 7: No headphones icon

Its me again

Windows 7

Sorry to hear about your problem, i will tell you how i solved mine.

I bought a USB headset.

Apparently if your pc is a little older, its has a different front panel configuration than the newest Pc`s, and the sound drivers for windows 7 don`t take this into consideration.
