This is annoying. I can't make the icon for the volume display in my area near the clock.
There is a little history. The computer was not booting properly. It would stop at some point which I believe had to do with the sound card, although I am not certain. After moving the card to a different slot the issue disappeared.
The sound card seems to be working perfectly well.
Only I can't make the icon/volume control appear. If I go into the control panel, I see that it is already checked to "Place volume icon in the taskbar". I've tried unchecking and rechecking it, also rebooting, but nothing seems to work.
