Hopefully someone can help. When I first start my computer, my speakers work fine. However, once I come back to the computer after it goes into standby mode, my sound does not work at all (not for iTunes, not for youtube, not for anything). Also, the volume control has suddenly disappeared from my taskbar, and when I go to correct this by going to "Sound and Audio Devices" in my control panel, I get a message box that says I cannot put the volume control on my task bar because it is not installed. I don't know when it became UNINSTALLED seeing as I have never removed it.
I have a used computer, no start-up discs, Dell Dimension 8100 running
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Service Pack: 3.0
Hot Fix: KB978207
Total Capacity: 37.25 GB
Sum of Hard Disks: (C: )
Used: 36.72 GB
Free: 540.80 MB
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
