Try double clicking on it. If your sound control panel comes up, unselect mute or adjust the volume slides to at least 50%. If this does not work, go to start>control panel>sound and look there for your adjustments.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

'this muting of volume just popped up all of a sudden'

In that case, try a system restore back to when it worked.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

There is also a chance your sound card is failing or needs the drivers reinstalled.

I say that because you stated "no audio device" and they can quit all of a sudden.

Good Luck
