Volume Icon missing in Taskbar

sue_vaSeptember 24, 2011

HP Media Center XP SP3

Volume icon has disappeared from the Taskbar. I googled for a fix and followed these directions:

Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Volume/ Devise/Select Place Volume icon in the Taskbar notification area check box.

That box is checked. I unchecked it, rechecked it and did a Restart. Didn't work.

The little caret is gone also. Taskbar is not locked.

I also checked HP Solutions; got the same fix there.

What else can I try?
