I'm running Windows 2000 and have alittle issue when controling sound. First the little speaker icon that might appear in the taskbar doesn't appear and when i go to the control panel>Sounds and Multimedia. The "show sound icon in taskbar" is unchecked and disabled so i can not change it. I would like to not have this greyed out and be able to change on the fly. What are my solutions and options?

You should install a driver for your soundcard. If you don't know what kind of soundcard you have, try AIDA32 => http://www.aida32.hu to identify it for you. Afterwards download the driver from the manufactors site or try http://www.driverguide.com (loginname: drivers password: all)

Also, check the device manager if there are any exclamation marks ( ! ) there. If there are, where do they stand for.
