Acer :: 6935g - Is My Volume Control Working Correctly
Jan 21, 2009
Is my volume control working correctly? The touch thing at the left. It changes the volume in blocks of 2, but even 2 blocks is quite loud and very difficult to set it at 2 blocks in the first place. Normally it goes to 4 blocks then 0 volume and takes time to set it at 2. Having to set the volume using the bottom right icon atm.
Is there anyway to get it more accurate and have a better range of volumes in the lower levels?. I did uninstall a lot of the junk programs that came with it but not launch manager
I have an aspire5734z laptop and can no longer control the volume with the Fn up arrow/down arrow buttons. Have no display of vol,wireless or cap lock any more. I've been through everything I can think of in control panel and can't find an answer.
I own a Acer Aspire V5 laptop and noticed a problem with the delete key recently while I was using Microsoft Office Word. Whenever I pressed the delete key it wouldn't delete what I selected and instead opened up the Key Tips in the ribbon. After having my son look at it he couldn't figure out the problem as well, but he noticed that the Delete key was functioning in the same as the Alt key. How to get delete key working correctly again?
every time I change the volume it goes into the separate volume popup window and whatever else I'm doing gets minimized if it was fullscreened, it's really annoying. How do I turn this off? I've been told by a HP custom service guy to uninstall Quick Touch, but I can't even find it anywhere.
(are there any other things I can do to optimize this computer?)
i have a dv4t that used to come with windows vista. back when it had vista, i heard that the on screen display from hp won't work with 64bit operation system. now i have upgraded to windows 7 64 bit. has anyone gotten on screen display for volume control working for windows 7 64 bit? i couldn't find the driver for the dv4t on the hp website
The volume control bar disappeared from the screen. The speaker icon is present on the taskbar. The volume control touch key are operational. But no bar is visible. The notebook is a HP 6910P running on XP pro, clean from viruses and malware.
I Have a HP DV6T QUAD and reinstalled Windows 7. When I touch the volume on my keyboard to increase or decrease the volume, it would appear on the screen for 1 second. Now after reinstalling, it doesn't show on the screen anymore when I touch the volume increase decrease on my laptop.
Just lookin' over the spec's on the new iphone and I noticed that the headphones now support volume control. I didn't see this fact listed before anywhere else or during the keynote... Its about time apple! The only major downside is that they are not enabling the feature on the 3G iphone. [url]
Product Name: HP Pavilion DV7-1261wm Product Number: NM295UA#ABA OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)
My computer gets all current HP/Microsoft updates automatically.My volume control moves up and down automatically. I can choose mute and it will not stay muted. I have turned off my built-in microphone. I had to unistall my HP SmartMenu controls because the buttons wouldn't respond and the on-screen volume display would activate every time the windows volume control would move causing me not to be able to play any games. I have ran MSE and MalwareBytes and have not found any viruses or ad/spyware that is causing the trouble. I don't' know what to do..I really don't want to have to go through the process of windows re-install or game re-installing.
Is there some way around this? I ended one of the process one time, I VolCtrl.exe * 32, and it made the onscreen display go away, but then I could no longer adjust the brightness (probably because the onscreen display is identical for both except for a light icon insteam of a volume icon)
With that process not running volume control still worked fine, but screen brightness changing went away, a price I can't afford to pay for that.
I have an hp g71-449wm the hard drive quit i replaced the hard drive fresh instal of windows 7 home premium loaded all the drivers from hp for this computer everything is perfect but no sound tried reinstalling drivers for audio still no sound the lines in the volume control move with the sound but no sound.
I have a brand new Acer Aspire V3-572G. Its been a bit of a lemon so far, but I will give it the benefit of the doubt for just a while longer as I'm not particularly tech-savvy so perhaps the problem is me. Yesterday the volume icon (on the bar at the bottom of the screen) stopped working altogether. I can press it with the curser and it changes colour in the way it should when you click on something ... BUT nothing comes up ... no sound/volume control thing that I can adjust. I know I can use the Function key and arrows, but that is just fiddly, and for a brand new computer, I expect things to work.
I have had this tablet for less than one week. Under settings in windows 8.1 modern interface is a control slider for the screen brightness. it does not appear to do anything. I would like to be able to change screen brightness suit my needs, but I cannot make this work. What settings I need to change or maybe software I need to update? There is one Acer driver update which does not load properly and always says fail. I believe it has to do with screen settings. Could that be the problem?
when I got the 1730 from Dell, right out of the box I was getting 15,500 on 3DMark05. I installed Dell's 'new' driver on their site and it lowered to around 15,000, so I rolled back to the original 'pre-release' driver and it popped back up to the original scores (this is stock, non-overclocked, btw...when CPU is cranked to 3.4Ghz, it gets ~17,000). This was dandy, and I was very happy with the performance of pre-release drivers.
So many games didn't work with Vista, or else worked badly (i.e. crashes), that I decided to reformat and put XP on there. Well, I figured I'd put the video drivers from Dell's Reinstall CD on there, thinking these were the same 'pre-release' drivers that were allowing the better scores in Vista. BOOM: I get 10,000 in 3DMark05, a 1/3 performance decrease! Believe me, I tweaked the driver settings just like I always do...SLI is definitely 'enabled' in the driver page, but the computer performs as if it is DISABLED. So, thinking it's a driver issue, I upgrade to the 'new' drivers on Dell's Support site, and BOOM: same issue. I'm so pissed off right now, I can hardly type, as this is LOWER than my 1710. For $4000, I could have bought a lot of hookers and coke, so this laptop may be going back with extreme prejudice if a solution isn't found in the next five to seven days.
There are threads about this in other forums around the net, but none of them I've found have any real workaround or solution other than 'we'll have to wait for Dell or Nvidia to properly support SLI.' Even the 'pre-release' driver on the system when it ships is not available for download anywhere, and I believe it's Visa-only anyway. Does anyone have a solution for this problem? Hell, is anyone else HAVING this problem? I PM-ed Progneta yesterday, because I thought he had had the same issue and fixed it, but the more I thought about it, the more I figured a separate thread should be started concerning this problem, since it's pretty basic and very crippling. SOMEBODY at Dell should have caught this, since I know for a fact the engineers over there EXPECT people for format their machines when they get them (i.e. this is marketed to an enthusiast crowd, and they know it).
Apart from windows 8.1 however that is not the concern of this post. My mouse pad stops working when I press a key, as in if I press 'W' whilst trying to move the mouse on the screen then the mouse tracking stops. So it is impossibe to play any sort of games and makes it realy difficult to do other things and is just annoying. The only button which does not affect this is the sift key. Is there a setting or something like that or am I just unfortunate?
I just got a my brand new laptop from Lenovo but only the integrated graphics card is running and to make matter worse it crashes from time to time. The laptop has windows 7 installed.
Here's what happened: Google sketch up test 1) install google sketch-up 2) run it for a while and then the screen goes white 3) error pops up stating that the integrated graphics has crashed 4) restarting sketchup is needed to continue
I tried the following to fix this: 1) reinstall the graphic card drivers from nvidia site 2) charge power management to max 3) set google sketch up to only use nvidia GPU (nvideo control panel)
Next I figured maybe it's sketchup with the problem so I downloaded a PC bench mark program - Maxon's Cinebench. this didn't work either 1) Does not see the nvidia card as an option to test 2) Setting it up to run only nvidia grpahics had no effect 3) I'm getting a crappy 17 frames per second - at least the ingrated graphics didn't crash this time..
I have a travel mate loaded with erecovery management. I keep getting a message "internet control panel has stopped working". This appears to be an appcrash; the guilty party being rundll32.exe. In addition "computer" has gone from my start menu and from windows explorer. Start menu.
I have carried out a sfc/scannow which says there are corrupted files that cant be repaired. System restore has not worked either. There appears to be 3 different options open to me to "restore" my system.
