I REALLY need help and I don't know if I'm in the right area, if not please forgive me as I'm new here. I have a problem. For a couple of months now I've been without sound on my computer and I'm going CRAZY! I've spent several hours on here several times trying to restore it with no luck. My volume icon is no longer on my tool bar. When I tried to go and click the box the restore it to the tool bar it is greyed out and can not be clicked. I have tried several things that other ppl have when they had the same problem but have again been unsucessful. I have a compaq. I have tried going on their site to maybe see if there was a sound driver I could download but couldn't really find one. If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it! I am currently unemployed so I do not have the funds to go buy another tower or a sound card. I can't even reinstall my windows because my ex has the windows CD and never returned it to me. Please help if you can!! Thank you very much ahead of time!
