    My volume control is gone from my computer.
    I have no sound and even when I go into system preferences it is set on max and to show on desktop but it is in grey and unchangeable.
    No sound comes out of any program and my itunes won't even play songs much less me being able to hear them. Isn't there some way for me to go back in time and have my computer reset everything as it was last week????
    I have no idea why this happened.

    Which Mac? Have you plugged in headphones recently? Does the optical port shine red even without anything connected?

    It is a macbookpro. I have used headphones recently. The port isn't red.

    Do the "Internal Speakers" still show up in the Sound preferences?

    no internal speakers show and I have no idea what to look for regarding the plist file missing/deleted. No sound will play with earphones either BTW.

    Here's a possible solution.

    I'd open up Garageband and see if that resolves it as well.
