No Sound, No Volume Icon, No Audio Device
I have a Dell Laptop model 9400 running Windows XP Pro. IE 8.
I noticed this morning I have no Volume Icon in my task bar. Has happened before, but just would restart and would come back. Not this time. Went into the audio section in Control and says I have NO audio device! Only sound I have is that horrible BEEP sound when you make a mistake, and that comes on whenever I get an email???? Really weird.
I've started/re-started. Just wonder if there's anything else I should do before checking for new drivers, or do a system restore?
Thanks so much for your help. I did a search before posting this, but the posts I found weren't quite like I'm experiencing.
