Hopefully you guys can help - this always is a great forum to get things fixed.

I have a Dell laptop (Latitude d810) that has no sound. I had this problem before and somehow fixed it but it was either luck or I don't remember/know what I did.

The volume control (speaker icon) has disappeared from the tray. It also did this the last time. There is a quick mute - volume control button on the keyboard that still functions although it really doesn't since there is no volume to control.

When I look at the audio in control panel everything appears to be okay. nothing is muted. It says the device is functioning properly and a net search says I have the most up to date drivers installed. The device/drivers being used is SigmaTel C-Major Audio. The computer will play no system sounds what-so-ever.

When I made it work last time this happened I just went through all the advanced settings in control panel and seemed to hit on something that made the volume icon show back up in the tray.

Any ideas/advice will be greatly appreciated.
