How do I get it back?
Look in the Control Panel for Taskbar and Start Menu, then the Notification Area tab. You should see system icons.
Won't let me check volume.
thats strange, is the sound hardware enabled?
I have sound.
Just have to control it from my keyboard, and it is kinda of a touch thingy no actual key or knob.
the other day I unknowingly built up some static electricity and when I touched my computer mouse I killed it
Right click on your taskbar and select Properties. Under the Notification Area tab should be some checkboxes for what you want displayed there (Clock, Volume, Network, Power, etc).
See if Power is unchecked.
he posted a picture that shows what is checked and unchecked.
Have you tried to uninstall/reinstall the sound drivers?
This. Sounds like driver corruption.. since the system was unsafely shutdown probably have to remove the sound devices and start over so it can refresh.
Ah I see it now. I posted from work and the image host was blocked.
