I have a Dell Inspiron 1520, and I just updated my audio drivers to be able to use Stereo Mix. It's a SigmaTel audio driver.
Prior to the update, whenever I used the hardware buttons to update volume or mute/unmute speakers, it would always have a nice display like this one:
But, for volume instead of screen brightness. The hardware buttons still work fortunately, but the volume display is gone.
Is there a place I can configure this setting and re-enable it? The speaker icon in task tray was also disabled with the update, but I re-enabled that from the Control Panel.
Is this simply gone with the driver update?
Thanks for the help!
