Try Start> Control Panel> Multimedia> make sure 'show speaker in taskbar is clicked.

But hopefully for the rest of your problems, drivers I think, someone will be along soon...

Meanwhile some system specs would be helpful.

Also do you have your OS disk?

Go to control panel, add and remove programs, windows setup, uncheck multimedia, reboot system. Now go do it again but check multimedia and reinstall it. If this does not work go to the sound card website and update your drivers. If no update uninstall and reinstall drivers.
