Hey all! Again, it has been a while.
Anyway... I just replaced the battery on my laptop, and I've been having issues with the volume control icon in the taskbar tray. Every time I start the computer, it's not there. If I go to "Sounds and Audio Devices" in the control panel, the box that says "Place volume icon in taskbar" is always checked. I have to uncheck, apply, recheck, and hit okay in order to use the volume bar.
Now, this was just an annoyance until recently. I alluded to replacing my battery earlier... While my battery was unable to charge, it never struck me that my taskbar icon for the battery/power supply was never in the taskbar tray. However, now I find that I have an even worse issue than that of the sound icon: I can't get this icon to show up at all!
Also, I cannot get the LAN control icon to go away from the taskbar.
For some reason, Windoze decided to hate me this time around, and believe me, the feeling is now mutual.
Does Anyone have any suggestions for solving these problems?
