No Sound no volume control in notification area

I updated to a new driver from Windows and my sound is gone and the volume 
control icon by the clock is gone.  I tried to roll back but no drivers to 
roll back too.  System restore also did not work.  Shoots.  What now?

This is not a Windows group. Do not upgrade a driver from the Microsoft web 
site. Go to the manufacturer's web page and get the update there. Have you 
re-booted?

What did work was I removed the driver that was there and did a scan for 
hardware changes.   Windows found new hardware and automatically installed 
the new driver.  That did it.  Everything came back; volume control and sound.

I want tocreate a combination chart, using the chart types area and line, it is not listed as a custom type in Excel - is it possible? Hi, Ignore the built-in combinations and create your own.

Blank area after fixed and variable height objects
My report detail has four objects: a chart, two subreports, and a memo field. The chart is at the top left with a subreport and memo field to its right. The subreport object is slightly above the memo field, each is the same width, and both are set to ‘Can Grow’, which they do successfully. (The chart is a fixed length of 3”.) The second subreport (that should immediately follow the chart) is printing much farther down the page than where it was designed – leaving a blank area that happens to be exactly the same height as the sum of the ‘growth’ of the two object to the right of the...

User control causes postback but events do not fire
Using 3.5, we have a user control (let’s call it Container.ascx) which has an asp:UpdatePanel with UpdateMode=”Conditional” and EnableViewState=”false”. It contains a table of asp:LinkButtons. In the markup, the Click event is declared for each LinkButton. This user control is loaded dynamically from its calling user control (Zone.ascx). After the LoadControl, it gets its ID set. The problem is that none of the LinkButton events for Container.ascx get fired although postback occurs and the EVENTTARGET property on the Request object shows the object which caused the postback co...

Margins of section x are outside the printable area of the page
I have a word 7 document with several sections in it. One section is a single page with an organization chart on it. I have set the section to landscape and the page looks fine in print preview. However, word still seems to have the page set to portrait. If I tell the process to continue printing anyway it prints in portrait and the chart is outside the printable area. Is there any way that I can reset this for this section of the document so that word will print in landscape? If I copy and paste the chart into a new word document it prints correctly so I don't think that ...

how do I print multiple print areas on one page
I have a wide worksheet that is not very deep i.e. lots of columns but not many rows. I have it in landscape but it is still too wide to go on one page. I would like to be able to print the right hand side of the worksheet underneath the left hand side of the worksheet, on one page, rather than having to print out two pages. Is this possible? This is a common question. The only way to do this is to create what you want printed. In other words, copy all of your data to a blank sheet, then cut/paste to get what you want, then print it. You can do this with a macro and nev...

dynamically creating a list of controls
The user needs to be able to create a single object composed of other various elements. To specify a single element, the user will have to fill out a series of controls, which looks like this: Cedit |combobox| cedit ||| cedit How do you dynamically create a list of these controls? I was thinking I could create a borderless dialog template that contains the series of controls, then create a dialog class(or window class?) that allows me to externally manipulate the control's values. Whenever an user wants to create a new element I simply create a new modeless dialog(or window clas...

Exchange 2003 "Always-Up-To-Date Notification"

Thanks, William King I can confirm this with the following caveats: 1) Up-to-date notifications will only work with PocketPC 2003/Smartphone 2003 clients, 2) your wireless carrier must support SMTP-to-SMS access to these devices. Microsoft is actively working to provide a solution with carriers that don't support SMTP addressin...

Windows repaint notification from another thread

Setting up Exchange for Volume Shadow Copies
We are planning to move for our Exchange servers so they can utilize hardware that supports VSS. We have found some great information on Microsoft's site that describes how to use snapshots to backup Exchange, etc.; however, one question there is one question we cannot seem to get our arms around: What is the best practice in regards to the location of transaction logs? Should the transaction logs be stored on a separate LUN from their associated storage group? Or (strictly from a snapshot perspective) is there a benefit of having log files stored on the same LUN as the storage gro...

Access 2007, Rich Text control. Cannot programmatically change font. Am I mad?

Publisher 2000 page control bar has disappeared

Pushbutton control in worksheet?
Greetings, A long time ago, I managed to add a pushbutton control to a worksheet, and when that button was pressed by the user, the macro/function I had tied to the button wrote out a text file, the contents of which were strings that I built from data on worksheet 1 and wrote as lines on worksheet 2. I need to do a similar thing and was wondering if anyone had a quick answer as to how to do this. This also falls in line with my general question of how I add controls such as spinners or selection controls that allow the user to make a selection from a dropdown, for example, and have that se...
