I have the same problem (except for the speaker icon part).

Thing is, the family computer has 4 accounts, and as far as I know, mine is the only one with this problem. (Only two of them aren't password protected, so I don't know about my sister's).

arny -

Go to your device manager and see if you have an audio adapter installed or if you do, does it have a yellow or red warning icon on it.

You haven't said what you have done to rectify the problem so here is one of the more obvious suggestions:

click start/click control panel/double click sound and audio devices/select volume tab/place check in "place volume icon in the task bar"/click on advanced/ uncheck all mute boxes
