Volume control button on task bar



Flightless Bird
I am using Windows XP if it matters. On the right-hand bottom corner in the
task bar, there is a volume control button. Click once and the volume
control button appears. The volume increases as the slider bar is raised.
When the bar is left-clicked a sound is heard to indicate the volume. The
higher the bar is raised the louder the noise when the bar is clicked.

Something happened to my bar so that now the only sound I hear when I click
is the "mute" sound. It doesn't matter it I have "mute" checked or not. How
do I fix that?


This change happened after I installed "Audacity", a software that comes
with a USB turntable. The turntable worked to record two songs, but quit
working after that. The volume control button is the only change I can find.
The turntable has been replaced and the new turntable doesn't work either.
I can play all .wmv, .wav, mp3, and other files and hear sound, and the
volume control bar works to control the volume when playing these type files.
But I can get no sound from my turntable.
