No audio on acer 6600 laptop

I have a laptop audio problem, which I think is more than just sound. It all started with, I think, me installing Firefox. My IE add ons were disabled. Other programs were limited in use, then my audio went. Have checked all drivers, which are fine. My volume icon has disappeared whereupon, i try to reinsert it on the taskbar, to find the Sound and Audio Devices box is all grayed out. I get a no entry like sign when actions don't happen and the only sound I get is a bleeping with notice/s. There is a yellow icon besides an audio tool I installed RealTek AC97 Audio. Not much I can do!
