Cannot Find Sndvol32 Exe ? - You Can Easily Fix it Now !

Author: Matt Terkovsky

It can be most annoying, to say the least, to get a "cannot find sndvol32 exe" error, nevertheless, it's not uncommon and you can put a stop to these types of pc errors quite easily. In the new few paragraphs, I will clearly explain to you an easy diy way that'll enable you to fix this problem and more difficulties that can pop up.

As you probably already understand, pcs aren't glitch-free and neither is windows; at some time or another, you will probably have errors and very frequently a corrupted registry is found to be at fault. Naturally, we're dealing with a very technical subject, but the gist of it is that the registry is the location in your pc where the windows application registers the installing, removing, and updating of hardware and software.

Performing any of these installations, removals, and updates incorrectly can often cause your registry file significant damage, thus leading to the point where you may run into trouble such as a "cannot find sndvol32 exe" error. The good news is that you can get rid of this problem; and in addition, this is a repair you can do yourself, even if you aren't a whiz with computers. Let me make a suggestion - before contacting a computer technician (the expensive route) in order to resolve this or other computer troubles, you should be aware of the fact that there are quite easy to use utilities called registry cleaners that enable you to do a complete search of the registry to find out what the errors are, and then take care of it!

So now if you run into a "cannot find sndvol32 exe" error, search your computer with a tool such as this; the bulk of them give you downloads, searches, and fixes at zero cost to you. And another thing, computer technicians make use of these programs when working on their customers' malfunctioning computers; it's a safe and effective process. I recommend you to download and install such tool right away, not only will it rid your computer of this trouble, but repair other problems you might not be aware of and at the same time do the job of optimizing your pc.

      Normally this file resides in:-


      It should also be in:-


      If you have a hidden folder called C:i386 then it is likely to be in there as well.

      Go into your Control Panel and open Folder Options, under the View tab uncheck “Hide protected operating system files (recommended)”, click Apply/OK. Now go into Windows Explorer(Not Internet Explorer) and go to C:WindowsSystem32dllcache folder and open it. Locate the sndvol32.exe file right click it,choose copy. Next go to the C:WindowsSystem32 folder and open it. In the right pane right click an empty area and choose Paste. Now you should have your volume icon back.

      Do you have the disks that came with your computer? Maybe you could redo it. Is it called re-booting your computer?

      Or maybe go to one of those computer help groups on MSN.

      Here is a group thaat I belong to and they have always been helpful whenever I had a problem:

    How can I reinstall sndvol32.exe without the Windows XP CD?
    On the morning of May 12, I tried using Everyday Auto Backup to back up my files, but somehow it managed to delete sndvol32.exe. I tried everything I could to make the icon appear again, but when I found out that it was missing and I needed the Windows XP CD to reinstall it, I haven’t been able to do anything yet. I don’t have the CD due to the fact that my computer came with it pre-installed and did not even provide such a CD, or even a recovery CD. I’ve looked online but I’m not sure if using the “Expand File/Restore From” solution will work. System Restore won’t work either–I have no restore points to use. What to do?
    Edit: To anyone whose suggestion is to email me sndvol32.exe, I already have it on my computer, but as a separate sort of “application”. I don’t need to have it emailed to me. I only need to figure out how to add the Volume icon to my taskbar. Don’t answer if you don’t have any suggestions other than “System Restore”, “I’ll email the attachment to you”, or anything that has to do with “cmd” or “Expand File”.

      If I had your email address I would email the file as an email attachment to you.

      Call your computer manufacturer and request the XP or the recovery disk or better yet both. This is a common request and only a few dollars to replace.

      In the mean time, borrow and XP disk from a friend and follow the instructions on the following page.

      Volume Icon Is Not Displayed in the Notification Area, and You Receive an Error Message When You Try to Add It
      Install and run the following program to find your Microsoft product key (s). Print out the results and save them.

    which Windows XP CD do I use to reinstall the Sndvol32.exe file?
    The drivers for my volume controls aren’t working so I’m reinstalling them but I don’t know which of the 9 cds I need to use. I’m using a Dell Dimension 2400 with windows XP Home Edition.

    Where can I download the program-> sndvol32.exe?
    unfortunately, I lost my xp cd so I can’t extract it.

      The program might not be installed on your computer because: It is an optional component. To add components after completing Setup, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Add/Remove Windows Components.


      press the start key + R to bring up the run menu

      now search depending on what your user hard drive is called you will alter the letter
      (mine is C:)

      so i would type


      go into there and search for a file called “dllcache”
      (on mine the test is blue for some reason)

      search for the “sndvol32.exe” file

      now right click and copy the file

      go Back into the “system32″ folder (c:WINDOWSsystem32)

      then simply paste this file into here.
