Windows CD not required...it's the installation of audio drivers which results in volume icon being reflected.

I would uninstall the audio drivers/controller via Device Manager (Sound, Video and Game Controllers)...then reboot and reinstall the correct audio drivers for the system or motherboard (available for download at the appropriate manufacturer's website.

If you provide the make/model of the system we can link you to the drivers that you need for your sound.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hi -

I think that Eyesee was actually referring to your computer Make and Model, rather than (usb audio device / realtek ac97)

Thank You -
