To merely restore your icon:

Located at the "In earlier versions of Windows" section.

However your error message would indicate you have a driver or hardware issue with your sound card/chip. Ensure you've got the correct driver loaded.

Start > Control Panel (make sure to use "classic view) > Sound & Audio Devices. Put a check in the box next to "Place volume icon in the taskbar", then click Apply. If this section is greyed out, reinstall the sound drivers.

If there is an error mark against your sound drivers in Device Manager (yellow question mark or whatever), delete the entry and reboot. This will re-instate the same driver and is sometimes necessary after a hiccup.
