Sims 4 Icon Doesn't Appear on Volume Mixer?

★★★★ Novice

It disappears whenever my laptop is closed for long periods of a time or whenever the screen is turned off. My Driver is updated and the sound for my game however isn't on due to the disappearance. It only reappears if I restart my game.

 

I'm using SP3 Windows 10.

Go to the Documents/ Electronic Arts/The Sims4 folder.
Delete Options file - looking like a gearwheel. The game will create a new one.
Fix the game in Origin
Origin/Library -right click on TS4 - option "Repair game"
You have to wait until Origin will fix all packs, not only the base game.
Turn on the game and check if it is working properly now.
