07:50 pm: Computer geeks please help!
I have no sound since my PC has been reconnected. Everything is properly connected and the speakers work. The sound card is good and this has happened before but I can't for the life of me remember what I did to fix it. I updated the driver with no luck. I have no access to the volume control panel no matter how I try to access it.

Any ideas on what to try?

ANY help is appreciated~thanks!!!

When you pull up the sounds there are no options?
Go to start>settings>system and go to device manager and see if everything looks good with the sound device. Text me if you want me to call you and walk you through it or come look at it.

Already been through all the device manager options. There was something I did before that fixed it outside of the norm but I just can't remember what... I had a techie friend that helped me come to the solution but that was a few years ago and I'm not even sure he'd remember the oddball fix. I sent an email in the off chance. I'm migraining big time and my phone is deader than the deadest dead thing right now as I was without my charger for the last two days-EEK! If I don't have a cure tomorrow I'll take you up on your kind offer for a walk through.

The command you're looking for is sndvol32. (Start | run | sndvol32 | click okay) That'll bring up volume control panel.

That command appears to be missing and I don't have my XP disc handy to try to reload anything. Sheesh. Why does everything I touch turn to rust?

try C:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe instead

Still a no go--it's just not there. Strange things are afoot at the Circle K tonight.

Bender: Are we boned?
Leela: We're boned.

Now substitute tripartite for Bender and missautopsy for Leela. :)

Yeah, I have to agree and add that someone set tripartite for "evil"
