Thanks for your prompt reply.
On System icons on or of  the icon Volume is off and cannot be changed.

OK can you possibly Open up task manager and end all processes named "explorer.exe" (this will rid of your taskbar etc but do not worry). Then go to File > Run new task and type in "explorer.exe" this should restore the volume icon.

If there's an issue restart your machine.

Let me know.
