I've lost sound on my Dell Windows XP home computer. The sndvol32.exe file
isn't recognized even though I can find it in the i386 folder. I don't have
a way to reinstall it from my Dell XP Setup Disk because it only allows a
complete reinstall of the operating system, not selecting individual files.
I can't locate this file on Microsoft's website either.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

George

Try this:

"Volume Icon Is Not Displayed in the Notification Area, and You Receive an
Error Message When You Try to Add It"

Hi,

Find the disk, or search your system for an I386 folder to expand a copy
from.

Hi,

From the command prompt (start/run cmd)
C:\>expand C:\windows\I386\sndvol32.ex_ C:\Windows\system32\sndvol32.exe

Or, click start/run msconfig and click 'expand file' on the general tab.
Fill in the blanks as follows:

File to expand: sndvol32.exe
From: C:\Windows\I386
To: C:\Windows\system32
