    Go to control panel and find and click on realtek then somewhere in the program there is another small icon to click(can't remember where/which) that brings up a box to put a check for an icon in the system tray.

    If you have Realtek installed, it is always to be found in control panel. For the system tray icon see post #2. This is for the generic driver. On my Lenovo it's automatically there even though I use HDMI and sound is bypassed through my video card and not realtek which is for.

    AH HA! See that little gear icon on the upper left? Click that and it should bring up the option for a system tray icon I believe. I was trying to see if you had the "i"(information) icon because on my windows 7 laptop it goes:
    Control Panel
    double click "Realtek HD Sound Effect Manager"
    Click "i" (Information)
    Turn off "Show icon in system tray"
    OK
    Click "i" (Information)
    Turn on "Show icon in system tray"
    OK
