Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Sound Icon - Enable - #316 on the right.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Its not that I cannot hear sound, and I can open the sound control manualy. The sound control just doesnt show in the system tray. The sound troubleshooter only gives options of sound related problems such as no sound at all, sound related error messages, ect. Ill try unistalling the sound device then reinstalling, Ill let you know the result.
