Can't get the sound to work through my speakers in windows Vista, they were working for a quick minute but could barely hear anything out of them, when i went to 'Control Panel' 'Hardware & Sound' 'Sound' I had a Speaker Icon and a Realtek digital output Icon. During this process i disabled the speaker Icon and now have no sound. Does anyone know how to get the speaker icon back and enabled??? So I can configure my sound settings so my speakers will work

Here is the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...07_check_volume

Step 3 and step 3a is what i'm having a problem with in figure 5 selecting speaker as default device, this is not in my options because i disabled it by accident and cant now set default and configure

If anyone can help that would be great thanks.

Edit: Got the speakers to work but the volume is all the way up and I can barely hear anything still any advice???

You didn't mention that you tried it.
The first thing to do is to reinstall the audio driver

I had this problem and got the icon to show again by 'right click' on the 'sound' table and check 'show disabled devices'.

Second thing to do:
- Select the sound card in Device Manager
- Rt click Properties
- If Windows indicates the driver status is Working, click the Troubleshooting button and let Windows step you through some of the sound settings
