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.

using common control version 6 in VC6
Hi all, I'm trying to use the common control version 6 in my MFC project, I've imported the manifest.xml adn specified 6 as the platform, but I still can't use the version 6 members of the NMLVCUSTOMDRAW structure in my custom drawn controls. for instance, when I tried to use clrFace of the structure, it would say 'clrFace' : is not a member of 'tagNMLVCUSTOMDRAW', and I've traced the problem to the definition of the strucfure itself, typedef struct tagNMLVCUSTOMDRAW { NMCUSTOMDRAW nmcd; COLORREF clrText; COLORREF clrTextBk; #if (_WIN32_IE...

Control Tab for Combo box
Hi, I have created a combo box in Excel 2002. When I right click and select Format Control the Control tab is missing. Any ideas about how to fix this? You created a combobox using the controltoolbox toolbar. The "control tab" doesn't exist for this combobox. But if you use a dropdown (aka combobox) from the Forms toolbar, you'll be one happy camper again.

Units of Measure in Edit Controls
Is there a good way for me to format data in an edit control by that control's unit of measure? For example: CString data = foo; FormatUnits(data, IDC_VALUE_CTL); c_value.SetWindowText(data); In FormatUnits(), of course, I have a basic problem: how do I determine how to format "data" by knowing my control ID?

CDialogBar controls initialisation, where?

New email sound and desktop alert? OL 2003

Items have to be delivered to the inbox (so anything moved by rule to another folder doesn't trigger the toast pop-up). The other thing is that a sound is not triggered for every item delivered.
