You didn't mention what you have tried, so I'll give you the basic way to put the icon in the taskbar.

From Start Menu/Control Panel.

Once Control Panel opens, click on Sounds and Audio Devices.
Volume tab.
Check the box next to Place volume icon in the taskbar

Click Apply to save the setting.

Your sound driver is either not installed or is disabled.

Go to Control Panel. Open up Administrative Tools/Computer Management.
Choose Device Manager.
Look under Sound, Video, and Game Controllers.
Do you see any entries with a yellow triangle and exclamation point next to them?
If you do, this means that the drivers are not installed.

You can try this IF you are using on-board sound (this is different from a seperate sound card)

RIGHT click on the entry. Choose Update Driver.

Check Yes to let Windows Update search for the driver.
Click next, follow the prompts.
This may find and install the driver.

IF IT DOESN'T, please post back with the make and model of your computer and someone will help you determine where you can go to find the driver.

If you have a custom built computer, we'll need to know the manufacturer of your motherboard.
If you have a seperate sound card, we will need to know which one.
