I dont get the little windows start up tune or the "welcome to gamespy" when i connect to gamespy and no sound at all in battlefield 1942 but all my other games have sound and clicking on buttons has sound...I have noticed that the little picture of a grey speaker is no longer in my system tray how do i get it back. my mp3 players still produces sound Its quite strange that some sounds are missing what could it be? when i click on sounds and audio device properties it says no audio device but under hardware tab it says there is C media ac97 audio device here is my spec:

k7s8x asrock motherboard

Dave,
It looks like you have a codec conflict with the MP3 and your sound card.
Have you tried reinstalling your sound card drivers?

As for the volume control in your system, it's probably gone because you audio card is not really installed. Try reinstalling the drivers and see if the icon returns in your sys tray.

Ive sorted it out now thanks!!.....but I have another big problem my mainboard temp when not under heavy load ..like right now is 52 degrees C and goes past 60 when playing games..Is it caused by the fact that Ive overclocked my card to 300 3d clock and 500 on the core clock...If it is I dont really want to lower this as my card is a geforce 5200 and is quite poor at normal spec..I have got a fan off of the top of a heatsink that is meant for a processor and was wondering where I could position it inside the case to cool down the mainboard?

Dave, you're running much too hot. Try bringing o'clock speeds down a bit and recheck.

dave said he was ocing his video card but says his cpu temps are hi. The video oc probably will cause more radiant heat in the case. A cpu fan in the case won't do much, add larger case fans and if needed upgrade the cpu heatsink/fan, make sure there isn't alot of dust clogging the heatsink up. You need air flow, in from the front the side or the rear or all three with case fans and then out flow goes through the PSU which, has it's own fan.

The problem is that chipset hs/fn are hard to find (if you know somewhere let me know) but graphics card fans are found easily so why not use a graphic card fan for a graphic card? The chipset hs/fn is wider so the holes don't match up with the Vid Hs. At least that's my experience.
