I remember reading a thread similar to this a while back but am unable to find it. The fellow had his laptop replaced several times due to the media buttons being too dim when pressed.
I am having the same problem. How bright are your media buttons when you press them? I can barely see them unless I'm right on top of them purposely trying to see what I've pressed.
Is there any way to adjust the brightness of these or am I out of luck? I'm not really in the mood to have the laptop replaced as university classes are about to start back up and I can't be without it.
I need to tunr off or remove my wifi touch button from my dv8t. I have spent the last month searching, removing, reinstalling, and skrewing with this laptop to get it off. nothing works. At the moment, my wifi turns itself on and off 28 time a minute on average.
I have already installed the keyboard driver that doesnt have the hp QLB on it. I have also removed the quick launch button drivers.... im at a loss now.
ive being having problems with make the remote control or the touch-sensitive control to work with any program other than MCE. What im looking for is them to work within other programs like VLC, foobar(winamp/itunes). the detail here is that those programs needs to be running in background
I just received my new DELL XPS 16 from Dell by ordering online. I very much like this laptop, I even ordered it despite all its noted flaws but mine happened to ship with a flaw that now i'm not so happy about.
At first I thought my laptop had a bump where the audio controllers are but I figured that it was raised to be more accessible in the dark or something since you can feel it but after a quick google verification, it seems this is a trait that sometimes occurs when these laptops ship.
Anyway, enclosed is a relevent, high resolution pictures of my laptops raised touch sensitive strip area.
The touch sensitive eject button on my new Studio 15 laptop appears to be stuck on. When I reboot the laptop, the media control lights flash back and forth as normal. However, the CD drive immediately ejects and the eject button light stays permanently on. This all happens the second the laptop comes on - long before it boots into Vista. This makes me suspect a hardware rather than software issue.
None of the other touch sensitive media controls work.
I've tried cleaning the button, checking for dirt under and on the button and rebooting the laptop. I also rested it overnight.
Anyways, can you disable the touch sensitive controls above the keyboard on this laptop? I have to use the F1-F10 buttons very often in an online game I play, and sometimes accidentally slide a finger over the WiFi touch sensitive button which immediately disables my internet connection so I get disconnected from my game. Very annoying if you have been playing for a while and accidentally touch that thing without being able to get to a save zone.
As for the other buttons besides the WiFi one, if I accidentally touch those, my game gets minimized and I have to wait for the HP Info Center window to load up before I can get back into my game, which by that time my character is already dead.
I looked around sites found with google and couldn't find anything. I never use the touch sensitive buttons besides the volume one (which is rarely used too and could do without if getting rid of the WiFi touch sensitive button means getting rid of all the touch sensitive buttons).
Are there drivers or software that are needed for the Touch-Sensitive Multimedia Controls? I re-installed Windows 7 (for a cleaner start!).All of the Touch-Sensitive keys work but the CD/DVD eject.... will only work as Laptop is booting (but not in Windows).Other programs in Windows will eject the CD..
I'm testing out my Blu-Ray drive and I notice that the volume on the playback in WinDVD is very low. I have to max out the volume in Win 7 just to be able to hear the audio through the notebook speakers.
The movie I'm testing is Ice Age 3. I have the DVD and the blu-ray version. The DVD plays very loud via WMP. The blu-ray volume leaves a lot to be desired.
Well after i reformat my pc the gray window that shows after you touch one of the five touch sensitive button doesn't show.same goes when you Fn+F5 which supposed to show WLAN and bluetooth card settings. What application or something i have to install for this?
I opened up iTunes today and while you are inside it, the touch buttons at the top of the Studio XPS 16 work fine but if you are in firefox, desktop or anywhere else they do not seem to control the music at all? Is there a way to fix this?
Anyone experience this issue? I just woke my laptop up from sleep and noticed the quickset buttons are stuck. The STOP (SQUARE) key is brighter lit than all the other keys and none of the touch sensitive buttons work.
I just received my XPS M1530 from the outlet here in the UK. So far I'm pretty happy with it, although I have had the AC adapter issue once or twice. Anyway, as I was setting the laptop up I tried playing a blu ray through Dell's media direct software. I was surprised to find that the playback was very grainy and noisy. Thinking it was the software, I installed Powerdvd 8 ultra and this also has the same problem. I've also downloaded the latest drivers for the 8600M GT and installed them but this doesn't seem to have helped at all.
i purchased laptop vaio vgn-c36mj and the original windows "x64"freezes and i had to format and i downloaded vista x32 and it worked fine but the problem is the touch buttoms aren't working
note:i downloaded all the drivers for x32 from the site and still they don't work and i checked device manager and found nothing not installed and b4 my format there were cool wallpapers vaio and some applications i don't remember from vaio but didn't find them on the site
My laptop is a Studio XPS 1645. I recently uninstalled some surplus programs and seem to also have accidentally uninstalled whatever lights up the touch buttons (e.g. volume control, pause/play, wireless on/off) What program this is and where/how i can get it back?
I have this laptop Dv7-1110eg.... Vista Ultimate 64bit
Just buy, the video card did not work ... was a hardware problem ... HP came to seek the ... did little more than 10 days ... HP has returned to me the laptop ... and now everything works perfectly, minus the touch volume controls... the play, stop, and other ... activating and deactivating the wireless network...
If turns the volume on the taskbar touch control changes color ... that works, but fingers (touching it) does not work ... Deploying the volume bar in the taskbar and click on the volume control Touch ... volume bar is moved a few millimeters, but always returns to the same place
HP has changed my motherboard for the problem of video ... if I remember that before the touch controls worked lead to perfection ...
Just as I returned the touch controls not working ... trying to solve the problem .... I installed Vista Ultimate 64bit and I downloaded all the drivers here [url] I have installed all ... even update the bios ... touch controls do not work
if anyone has had the same problem as me with the HP HDX 16. Randomly, even as I am typing here, the volume bar (with treble, bass etc) will appear on screen and will increase/reduce very quickly as if im pushing down on the touch buttons, this stops me being able to type, sometimes crashing the computer.
At the same time, this fault also occurs for the wireless LAN button to the far right, which will randomly disable (turn red) as if i'd touched it, sometimes causing the desktop to crash but more importantly causing me to lose connection and have to reconnect on a frequent basis.
I've had the notebook for over 6 months, and while i did have this occur on very rare occasions, since a couple days ago it has increased to a point where it happens all the time, including after a restart. I have tried searching through google to see if the problem is known, and i have seen a similar account on a customer review website. I have used HP health check and followed the updates supplied including that for the touch smart buttons and a BIOS flash.
I've recently installed Windows 8 on an SL500 Lenovo ThinkPad. One of the three messages in Action Center is a problem with the hotkey utility. Lenovo's Support page recommended installing gevu65ww.exe. The current version is 4.22.1000. After this is installed, I click on "finish" and get the notice that "this program does not support this system. The volume/mute buttons next to the keyboard have not worked since upgrading to Windows 8. The Windows 8.1 has the same problem.
I think I accidentally turned off the volume bar on my laptop and I'm not sure how to turn it back on. sound does work I have to manually adjust it using the volume icon and all the lights are on. I can't even turn on/off my wireless button.
This may not be a question that is specific to my particular notebook, or even to Dell but then again, it might be; I'm not sure.
Previously (that is, before I recently reinstalled Windows) my computer used to have some sort of "memory" for volume settings.
I normally set the volume to around 20 when using headphones and set it to around 100 without headphones.
My computer had a "memory" for this in the sense that whenever I plugged in headphones the volume would automatically set to 20 and when I unplugged them, it would go back up to 100. However, this no longer happens and I don't know why
