task bar

I lost the speaker icon from the notification area of my task bar. When I right click on the task bar then click on properties I can view the notification listings. The speaker box is not checked and won't respond. Seems like it's no longer available. Any ideas?
Thanks
Jerry

Do you have any sound on the computer? If not something has probably happened to your audio driver and you will need to reload.

Right-click on the taskbar and select Properties/Notification Area/System Icons. Make sure Volume is checked. If it's grayed out, reboot and try again.

Go to Start and move over to the bottom right and pick "Restart" from the drop down menu.
