    Thumbs up Fix - For Missing Volume Control

    Here's the fix for a suddenly missing Volume Control I suspect occurred when Windows '98 froze during the process of updating new skin changes into my dAP player.

    The "X" and "Y" coordinates that position the volume control window from last opening got trashed in the registry.

    START>RUN...type REGEDIT...click OK.

    Expand tree for HKEY_CURRENT_ USER
    Click Software
    Use "EDIT" tab in tool bar...select FIND...type in VOLUME.
    Click FIND NEXT.
    Browse through registry until VOLUME CONTROL is found using F3 key to scroll with.

    Click on VOLUME CONTROL...X and Y should appear in top lines of the right pane window.
    Click on X.
    Right click X
    Select Modify
    Type in the number 5
    Click "DECIMAL" radio button
    Repeat for "Y".

    The values my X and Y had changed to from the freeze up were (3000)!

    These things happen.

    Re: Fix - For Missing Volume Control

    I cannot open my volume control. I have Windows ME. I tried what Craze said but it doesn't work. Is that because it was for windows '98? Can you please help me? I have been trying for days to figure this out. My e-mail is gorseam@aol.com. I would really appreciate the help.

    Re: Fix - For Missing Volume Control

    I had this problem too. I just found Sndvol32.exe in my C drive
    C:\i386 (windows files)
    and put it in my windows folder....

    If that doesn't work follow these microsoft instructions....
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;Q319095

    Also make sure you try this....

    Go to Start/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Volume Tab under Device Volume, put a check in the box that reads: Place volume icon in the taskbar.

    Question Re: Fix - For Missing Volume Control

    Hey Crazy Curt your answer would work if I could find Volume Control. The Registry comes up with things like "b" and data with "Volume Control" but I can't modify it. There were not any X and Y things so it didn't work. Do you know any other way that could help or something else I could search for? Thank you.
