Oh forward to 2014 and this gal would like to thank all the posts but especially the one from the "fussy old lady" who helped me solve my problem.
Without her post, I would not have the volume I have now. I also must have accidently touched the volume button above my keyboard. I'm still learning what all the buttons mean. Thank you for the solution and for all the posts - very entertaining. Now I can listen to my music.

I'm curious what was meant by "fast forward to 2014". What year were
you in before fast-forwarding? How was the fast forwarding accomplished?
Can you rewind, too?

This volume button problem reminds me of something I accidentally did
many years ago. I was sitting at my computer when the TV-monitor suddenly
made a sound like a small, muffled explosion and went black. The computer
itself was still running, the room lights had not flickered as they would if the
power dropped out momentarily. I was shocked. What happened to my

I gradually recalled that I hadn't just been sitting at the computer-- I was
typng. I had got to the end of the line or the paragraph and reached over to
the right side of the keyboard to press the "Enter" key, which was a large,
horizontally-oriented rectangle. Hmmmmm.... The TV-monitor's power
button was a large, horizontally-oriented rectangle on the right side, which
I pressed every time I began or quit using the computer. Instead of hitting
the "Enter" key, I had apparently reached up and hit the power button and
turned off the TV-monitor. The muffled explosion sound was just the normal
sound of it turning off, but it shocked me because I wasn't expecting it.

I have a hypothesis that something similar happened back in 1961 when
astronaut Gus Grissom was floating on the ocean in his Mercury spacecraft
waiting for the Navy helicopter to lift him and the capsule out of the water.
He was just lying there when the hatch suddenly and unexpectedly blew off.
The spacecraft quickly filled with water and sank. Grissom barely escaped.
There was never a definite explanation of how it happened.
