Hello,

Resolution
Extract a copy of the file from the XP CD. Do the following

To extract a copy of the Sndvol32.exe file from the Windows XP CD and save it on your computer’s hard disk, follow these steps:
Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD drive or DVD drive. Press and hold the SHIFT key as you insert the CD to prevent it from starting automatically.
Click Start, and then click Run.
Copy and paste or type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
cmd
The command prompt opens.
Type the drive letter of the CD drive or DVD drive, type a colon, and then press ENTER. For example, if your computer’s CD drive is drive E, type the following, and then press ENTER:
e:
Copy and paste or type the following, and then press ENTER:
cd i386
Copy and paste or type the following, and then press ENTER:
expand sndvol32.ex_ system_root\system32\sndvol32.exe
Note system_root is the path and folder name where the Windows system files are located on your computer. This is usually C:\Windows. If the folder that contains the Windows system files on your computer is C:\Windows, type the following, and then press ENTER:
expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe
Note There is a space between "ex_" and "c:\windows" in this command.
Type exit to exit the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Verify that you can start Volume Control and that the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area (if you selected this option in method 1).
If the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area, you are finished.
