I have lost my volume control, and its icon. I have an HP PC with the volume wires connected from the screen to the CPU, and I have plugged and unplugged these, and they are properly inserted. I have now lost the speaker icon, and when I go to Control Panel and the Sounds & Audio Devices icon, under the tab "Volume" it states "No Audio Devices".

In the desktop task bar I now have a "Realtek HD Sound Effect" icon.

Grateful if you can advise how I can restore volume control, as I get no sound now from WMP etc.

Thanks for your reply, and sorry for not responding earlier. I read the link you suggested. It says "insert the Windows XP CD-ROM" but what is that? I created "Recovery Disks". Are these the ones? Sorry, I need a nanny!
