My volume is currently muted and I keep clicking on the volume icon, but it won't bring out the volume control like it usually does. Why?

Just Kidding. the problem is most likely your drivers.

Many times when you upload a new program or file, it will unintentionally effect your sound drivers. Quicken did that to mine.

I had to go to the computer manufacturers website, and download the sound drivers for my computer, then everything worked fine again.

Many times, your computer will come with recovery disks, or diver disks. You might be able to reload your sound drivers that way too.

I Hope that helps!

What OS are you using ?
If it is XP
go to control panel
(if you are in category view)
look for sounds speak and audio devices
left click and open it up
click on sounds and audio devices
It will bring up a box sound and audio device properties
First tab will be volume
First speaker should have the audio speaker name (example real tek or sound blaster)
if not or says no device , you need to reinstall the audio driver.

Hope this helps , if you need more help just let me know and I will try and help you .
Sometimes when audio drivers are down loaded from Microsoft can mess up what you have. If you need further assistance I will give you my email and you can email me there with the info I need to further help you .

Or..<click> on the Start button (lower left-hand corner of your screen). Then <click> on Programs. Then <click> on Accessories. Then <click> on Entertainment. Then <click> on Volume Control. <Click> on Options and make sure the 'Advance Control' CHECKMARK is there. Now 'demute' the little [] boxes that may be marked 'mute'. Check other things in the VOLUME BOX. Hope this helps, and gets rid of the grey!

Uhmm, I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but I have windows XP and my volume is working, like I can hear sounds and music and whatnot, but I can't adjust the volume. When I try, it says that I have no audio device, but my computer has built in speakers. Anyone know how to fix it?

TTIN,

You didn't really provide a lot of information, so I'll just take a stab at it. Some computer operating systems will have a designated "administrator", that is the only person who can change settings.
