Specs: Windows XP
I have lost sound from my PC. I get sounds when I play cards, it says when I make a wrong move. but now I can't get anything through the external speakers though the external speakers do work through a radio and there is the usual buzzing sound so there is power getting there. I have lost the speaker icon in the task bar as well. I have tried to retrieve the audio but I haven't been successful.--Eric Can anyone out there help me please?

A good place to start is:

• Control Panel
• Sound and Audio Devices

The first Tab has the option:

√ Place volume icon in the taskbar
