What happened to my volume control?!

    My volume control
    - shows up in gray on the menu bar
    - won't go up or down
    - the same thing happens in System Preferences but the Mute button is not checked
    - sound does not play
    - when I use the keyboard to change the sound, the null set sign appears beneath the volume bar and the speaker again appears in gray instead of black
    - still does not work upon restarting

    Why might this be? (Thanks!)

    Well, this is weird. I took out my headphones, restarted, then put in the headphones and everything worked perfectly. I still have no idea what happened but it works now so I'm happy.
