Thanks for all who answered my question about my computer restarting evertime I shut it down. I have another problem that occured about a year ago and I haven't been able to figure it out. I am using the AC-97 audio driver and nothing I do will make the volume icon appear in my tray. I put a ckeck mark where it says and next time I look the check mark is gone. I have on several ocasions deleted this driver and reinstalled it but to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas?
