Windows cannot display the volume control on the task bar because the volume control program has not been installed. To install, use Add/Remove programs in control panel.

Sounds like you might have a corrupt sound card/device driver.
Try a system restore as suggested by zooropa, failing that reinstall the drivers for your sound card.
