volume icon missing on taskbar on toshiba satellite A305-56905

I clicked on properties on the task bar and volume system is greyed out, as is the power icon.  Does anyone have a solution?  Thanks.

Satellite A305-S6905 

 

 

First thing to try is a clean removal and restore of your Windows GUI (desktop). This is a little scary, but doesn't hurt a bit. I'll assume you use the standard Vista start menu.

 

Close all the applications.

 

Click on the Start button. Hold down Ctrl+Shift and right-click on any empty area of the menu or on the power/lock buttons at the bottom of the right half of the menu. One of the context menu choices is Exit Explorer. Choose this and the Windows GUI will shut down.

 

Turn it on again this way. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up Task Manager. Use New Task on its File menu to run..

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the help.  I did exactly as you said.  The volume button was not restored but I right clicked on the task bar properties and selected the volume icon on the Notification Area tab.  That option was greyed out before.  Thanks again :smileyhappy:
