When i use the sliding thing on my dv5, the volume overlay comes on and if im playing a game or something, it has to minimize. Its incredibly frustrating. Also its in the middle of the screen so if im watching a movie it gets in the way for a full 5 seconds.
Does anyone know how to stop this?
and for hp users check out the attachment, it turns off your display. Its really useful.
Last week I got my new ThinkPad W530 as a replacement for my W500 that replaced my R60 that replaced my R51. One of the first things I noticed was the changes to the keyboard. I really like the feel of the keys, but I don't like the layout, I think the previous one was perfect :/
Anyway, I'm not here to bash. I'm giving the new layout a chance, and maybe I'll get used to it and not want to go back in some months, let's see. But before I can do that, there is something I absolutely need. I use some software that needs a numpad and the new W530 keyboard doesn't seem to have the numeric keyboard overlay that the older models had.
Is there anyway to get this or simulate it's behaviour? Anything, I don't care if it is a hidden Fn combination that will activate it, a third-party software to simulate it, a fan-made keyboard driver, or some fiddling with Windows options. But sure there MUST be some way, easy or difficult, to make they keyboard work as if it had NumLock and a numpad, right? I don't think I'm the only one needing this functionality...
I've just received a new Studio 1537 with the WXGA LED display and I can't seem to find the setting to auto adjust the LCD brightness in the Power Options. For that matter I can't even find the settings in the bios either
My product number is HP 1000-1312TU Notebook PC.And my os is windows 7 ultimate 64x.Since i've changed my os from 8 to 7 i couldn't change brightness of my screen neither with keyboard keys nor with power options setting, i mean they don't work at all.I also searched all the drivers.
I just purchased a refurbished HP Pavilion. I cannot figure out how to turn off the auto brightness, which is an extremely irritating feature, which to me seems to have no purpose. I have turned it off under advanced power settings, nothing. I have looked in General PC settings but nothing(Windows 8.1) I have done all I can find to do.
My lenovo G505 recently had to be reformated because there was a blue screen that came up one day that said there was problem with my PC and the error was critical_service_error, something like that. So my dad had to reinstall windows 8 for me using a cd he had that didn't come with the computer I don't believe. So now for some reason my screen brightness isn't adjusting and it's driving me crazy! It's staying on full brightness which I hate! I tried changing it from the personalization screen and nothing happens.
I've noticed the screen on my Yoga 2 pro tries to automatically adjust the brightness of the display depending on how dark or light the content being displayed is... I want to figure out a way to make it stop. For example, my desktop background is just plain black, and when i got to my desktop, it starts to dim by 4-5 levels lower, and then when I go back to my browser, it reverses and starts to turn up the brightness by 4-5 levels. I've already tinkered with all the power settings and even the advanced power settings to turn of auto dim/automatically adjust brightness etc and all those settings but it still does it.
My T440p slightly adjusts the screen brightness depending on what is being displayed. For example, on Chrome, one page might have more images, so the screen slightly adjusts brighter or darker. Another page it might slightly adjust again. And it does it when scrolling down a page as well. It is distracting, and I want to disable it? I'm on windows 7.
I have been trying to get 5.1 sound with my laptop, i have heard people i think with other models that make microphone jack into a center/surround output, and other have said that its possible with hdmi but i have tried with latest drivers of HMDI that i got (22.214.171.124).
I just put in a DVD to test the speakers sound quality and noticed the sound is very low. Even when turned up via the touch controls the audio is barely audible (hardly one of the best laptop audios). Am I missing something, or did I get a bad apple?
I replaced the mobo in a dv8000 I picked up on the cheap. Put it all back together, loaded vista on it, and I am getting no sound at all from the speakers. If I plug headphones into the side of it, I can hear sound fine, but speakers are not working at all. I have replaced the speakers with a known good set, and still the same thing, nothing from the speakers at all. I have also replaced the audio / usb board, with the same result.
The sound overlay keeps coming on every 2 seconds with the sound like its changing the volume, but it isnt. If i try using my finger it goes up and down maybe 2 bars then goes back to where it was stuck at after going mental for another 5 seconds. I can only change the volume using the taskbar icon, but the overlay keeps coming on. mute doesnt work, pause/play etc doesnt work, quickplay. You can imagine its incredibly annoying.
Is there a driver i can reinstall or something?
Its a vid file of the problem, when you see the bars going up and down, thats me trying to change the volume.
I have downgrade my system to windows xp sp3 from vista home 32 bit orignal edition. i got all driver but didn't get sound driver. i did all tried but no luck i am getting below error when i am trying to install sound driver.
--------------------------- Configuring IDT Audio Driver and Applications --------------------------- ExitError:Error=Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again ---------------------------
It has IDT High Definition Audio CODEC VERSION: 1.0.5934.0 Orignal driver for vista os but i am not getting this driver for windows xp. I did my all tried but no luck can anyone guide me for above error ? or is there any compatibale driver for the same ? even technical support raise their hands.........
I just got my new HP DV 4T. It works very nicely, but the on board sound is just OK. I have the volume control turned up all the way, but you need to be within about 10 feet to heard it well. Is that normal? Do I need some external speakers, or is there are way to boost up the sound?
i havent long owned my hdx16 but am wondering of it is possible to connect my 5.1 surround system to it, it has 3 audio in jacks on the system and the laptop has 3 ports on it, surley there must be a way to connect the system.
Have Laptop Compaq N610C,P4,512mb ram.windowsxp pro sp3.
Yesterday it was working.I did not install any new hardware or program.I usde headphone to listen music.Today When I played music,there is no sound.I checked the connections.uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the sound driver but no sound.I checked it has all properties on.no mute on.
I don't have sound anymore. On the sound icon in the system tray it shows the sound on, however, just above the function keys, there is a sound icon that is color orange with the mute button on. So, how do I get my sound on again.
I can record via the mic, using something like the inbuilt Sound Recorder software, and the saved file contains the correct recording. However I'm not able to monitor that sound via the speakers (or headphones or external speakers).
As I'm hoping to use the laptop for music making this is a big issue - for example plugging a synth into the mic socket means that I can record the synth, but can't actually hear what I'm playing during the recording.
I've tried using a couple of professional audio applications but it's the same issue - there's no ability to monitor the input audio.
The mic socket works - as it's recording. And the hardware is able to monitor the sound - as I have heard a burst of the input sound occasionally when accessing help files or software settings when in the applications.
It sounds like a software glitch...or do you think this could be duff hardware? I don't have this problem on my desktop XP machine.
I have been having persistent issues with sound on my laptop.
The issues are:
If the laptop has not been restarted for more than a few hours, the sound begins to distort. This gets progressively worse as the laptop is left on, to the point that it severely distorts, and even movies, etc. (from my hard drive, not the internet) start to visually skip, in sync with the sound. Restarting the computer by any means, i.e. hard restart, soft restart, etc, fixes the issue temporarily, but as mentioned previously, the sound starts to distort again. At times, online videos skip ever so slightly, though this is not nearly as severe as the sound distortion. (This may not be related, as I have a lousy internet connection, but the sound distorts nonetheless). Additionally, this happens not only through the speakers, but through the headphone jacks as well.
I have googled around, and while I have found that there are known sound issues with the DV6700, none of them seem to match this exactly. However, I have heard that the media chip (I don't know the technical name) is known to cause issues, so I suspect this may be the problem. That wouldn't explain the temporary fix from restarting though...
I have installed/updated the drivers for my speakers, among other things. I also checked my system idle process, because I thought it may be a simple case of stressing the CPU. The system idle process is at 85, however, so I doubt this is the problem. I also e-mailed tech support, but naturally this was no help.
I have a friend who brought the DV2-1027 (canadian version, maybe I make a mistake with the exact model number) with staples. When we start a movie from the external DVD, there's no sound that I can't hear but I hear sound on windows or on youtube for example.
Do you have an Idea about what it is ( tomorrow I will update the graphic card driver to verify if this is the problem, if not I don't know what will be the problem.
