Have you tried opening the sound settings on your system?

Thanks for your reply. I did exactly that. I pressed F2 and it unmuted. Yay!!! However I cannot adjust the volume (it's at 100% now). I cannot see any slider or the mixer option. I re-installed Linux and since then I see that a lot of stuff is missing, such as the little boxes you can put a checkmark in to select it. I think I need to install something (or re-install) that will allow these boxes to come back. Do you have any suggestions?

You probably need to switch to another window and icon theme if you have a problem with the theme you currently use and widgets are missing or have visibility issues.

I am using Linux - Chalet OS. Everything worked well before, except that Firefox kept crashing. I reinstalled everything and now I have issues. Prior to installation I had a volume box similar to the one in your screenshot (left side). I think something didn't get installed, but I don't know what!!

No..didn't help. I don't really want to install stuff unless I am 100% sure of what it is that I am installing.
