Alright, so my situation is entirely my fault, so if please don't condescend upon my ignorance. I was in the task manager ending processes that I deemed "useless" in an attempt to reduce my CPU usage. Apparently (at least) one of those processes was not "useless." As a result of this, I seem to have lost the green bar that appears when changing the volume with the physical buttons. The toolbar icon is still there and functioning properly, I have simply lost the green bar that appears in the middle of the screen. I am using a Lenovo ThinkPad with Windows Vista. If anyone can help me fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.

So do you remember the program you closes on the task manager?

(worked on my Windows 7)

I'm not sure if you have already find a solution to your GREEN VOLUME BAR INDICATOR problem, but anyways the solution is the "LAUNCH MANAGER"

Resinstall or enable this function and your volumne indicator should pop out when you turn the volumne dial.

If you are using and ACER notebook, you can use the ACER eRecovery Maanagement, then select the "Reinstall applications/drivers", from here just follow it step by step, but be sure to select only the driver for the LAUNCH MANANGER to avoid accidentally reformating your system.
