My daughter removed programs that she said were for a cell phone hook up and I would never need them. So I think something has accidentally been removed from my laptop that effects my sound control.
I used to right click on an icon in my taskbar and a window would come up. I would right click on 'Volume Control' and another window would come up and I would adjust the level of my volume.
Now when I right click on the icon and the window comes up, I click on 'Volume Control' and....nothing happens. Nothing.
Can anyone help me. Acer laptop, Windows XP
go to your control panel, audio and sounds... it might have been removed from your system tray but it should be there...
A very fast way of dealing with the problem is just to go to the restore function and restore your system to a time before your daughter change it.
I tried to put the volume control icon in the taskbar and it says it cannot do that because the volume control program is not installed. I don't know what the name of the program is. I don't know how to find it because when I go to system restore it only lets me go back one month and she removed them two months ago. I tried to google it to see if it is something I can download for free but could not find anything.
Please refer to my reply to @mariadomenica
Thanks for your help
Lisa, did you click on control panel and look for Sounds And Audio Devices?
Yes, and I found that SndVol32.exe was not there. I googled it and was able to download it.
Thank u to everyone who helped.
Yay...can you hear me now?
What make and model is your laptop? Can you go to the manufacturer site and download the driver?
