Red X on Volume Icon and Volume Mixer has disappeared

    Somehow in the past few weeks, my speakers are working find but no sound. I
    have tried uninstalling and re-installing the sound drivers, but still
    nothing. I have a feeling that since the Volume Mixer does not display, that
    this might be why I'm not getting any sound. I know I might be grabbing at
    straw's here but I'm getting frustrated.


    Gateway Computer

    Windows Vista (32-bit)

    Sound Card: SigmalTel High Definition Audio CODEC

    Is there a way to get the volume mixer back?

    I tried a few options from other threads but was unsuccessful.

    When I go to the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and try to
    start the Windows Audio, I get the following error message: Error: 1068 The
    dependency service or group failed to start.

    Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I haven't had any issues with
    Vista until now, and really not sure what to try next.
