How do I restore my "Volume Control" icon in my my System Tray?

It was there a week and a few reboots ago. It disappeared with no obvious reasons. I can't restore it as check box is disabled. Please see the attached image.
Windows Vista.  My 2 years old "3 z Cinema" speakers from SRS Labs.work fine but I have to control volume by remote control rather than  with my mouse.

Please advise.

If  I understand correctly, you will need to go to control panel,  open Sounds and Devices, then check the box that says, place Volume icon on Task bar.

I don't use vista but should be there in control panel.
