HP/Compaq :: DV6130US- Some Keys Not Working And Brightness
Apr 4, 2009
My laptop has gotten into deep trouble..
Since the last few days, some of the keys have stopped working .. These are mainly the z,x,c,v,b,n,m,space-bar,delete,f8 keys.
Accidentally I minimized the brightness level to lowest level using the fn+f7 key.. and now i cannot bring it up using the fn+f8 key.
I heard that this could be problem due to some malware. However, i ran spybot and antivirus checks and nothing seems to have worked so far. Also, these keys do not even work at the boot time before any OS is loaded. So should i assume that this is a hardware problem?
Currently i am alteast looking for a solution to atleast restore the brightness level.. because its really strainful to look at the dim monitor.. Isn't there any alternative to the fn+f8 key combination?
My laptop - HP Pavilion DV6130US.. Windows Xp. about 2.5 years old.
After installing new Windows7 ultimate OS.Brightness control keys are not working of my laptop.My laptop model is HP 14-D010tuI search for drivers but not find suitable and working driver for my laptop.I have hotkey driver software but this soft not installing ...
I recently received a new laptop at work (a few of us have) and we are all having the same issue with this laptop. The function keys F8 and F9, which are labeled to control screen brightness, are not working. I have searched many forums and I cannot find a fix.
Product Name: HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 Product Number: 2CE4140876#ABA Windows Operating System: Windows 7 Enterprise, 64-bit
The screens are so dim it's hard to see the content on them.
I just got the x120e and I already went through and fixed it auto-brightening itself. After I hit the Fn + Home and adjusted it to my preference. It was not on the charger when I did that and I was in a darker room so I had the brightness down lower. Later on in the day, I plugged it in to charge and I went to make it brighter. The brightness is not changing however. All the oher Fn + F keys are working. Just not the two for brightness. The weird thing is, I shut the computer, waited for it to enter sleep mode then opened it up again and it was really bright and I had to pretty much squint, but again the keys were not working to lower it. I closed it again and opened it and it is again dimmer. The keys still aren't working.
I've got 2 separate but really annoying issues with my W540 20BH:
- display brightness keys not working: when waking up from Hibernation mode, sometimer (really, randomly!) the display brightness keys (Fn+F5/F6) don't work.... either if the display brightness is stuck on max, min or an intermediate level...Is there a way to shut down and restart the process which commands the Fn keys?
- audio channel commutation gets stuck. Normal behaviour of the audio configuration is: 1) speaker volume disabled, mic disabled 2) when plugging in a 4-pin headset, headset's volume is on, headset's mic is switched on; speaker volume is still disables. 3) when unplugging the headset, speakers' volume is still 0
After each boot, the audio channel is at 0, but doesn't commute to the headset when plugged in! I have to open Configuration Panel, realtek properties. With this window open, unplug and re-plug the headset. Now, the volume has its normal behaviour.
Any better way to configure audio channels and evenments, which is able to bypass realtek's manager?
i've recently just repaired the jack connector for my hp pavilion dv6000. I put it all together today and my keyboards playing up. Quite a few of the keys arent working. I've checked the connection for the keyboard and its pushed in as far as possible.
I have upgraded to W7 pro, ran the companion DVD and everything is good except the FN brightness key (also changing brightness in W7 itself) they don't work.
I have been to the sonystyle.ca website and down loaded apparently the correct utility settings driver 5.0.0.07280 for W7 Pro 32-bit (at least it says on the website its compatable) and when I try to run it, it says it's for Vista only.
I have very annoying problem with hot keys for adjusting monitor brightness! After last version of hot keys driver they don't work. I can't increase or decrease brightness! Pressing them down and can't change anything. And there is something more! For example I have adjusted some level from power manager and everything looks good until I don't try to manage brightness with hot keys. I doesn't matter if i want to increase or decrease brightness, it just goes to maximum level!
I can't change my laptop brightness neither with F2 and F3 keys nor in the settings. I have already updated all my drivers but still have no response when adjusting brightness. I have an hp pavilion sleekbook 15
I'm having the same trouble with my brand new 8460p : the brightness of the display can not be adjusted with the function keys (fn+F-keys) while in Windows. In other threads the problem has been solved by installing newest chipset drivers (which was not provided by HP), but in these threads the computer has been an earlier model. 8460p has the new QM67 express chipset and currently I'm running the latest drivers (according to intel's detection web site) for it.
I'm running a fresh install of Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit with all the latest drivers.
I have XPS 15 (L501x) laptop. I cant adjust the brightness of my screen through the function keys(quick set) or from Control panel (Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsPower Options)I have already tried
Reinstalling quick set Restoring Reinstall Drivers from my Drivers CD Chipset : Intel HM57 Video drivers : Intel HD graphics
I also tried to install bios drives, but the system would allow me, saying, its already the latest
For some reason when i press on the FN+F4 or F5 this brings up the small display showing the brightness level but it will only move the level one or two notches in either direction. It will not adjust the brightness of the LCD display on the laptop at all.
I have installed the latest driers and since then I am unable to change the screen brightness using function keys. I have installed multiple driver updates hence it is difficult to find out which driver is causing the issue.
I have strange quirks with caps led indicator and brightness keys: they work just after power on, in grub menu but they cease to work after operation system boots to graphical environment.
Caps lock itself is working fine: just indicator don't light up. Brightness control itself is working also: I can configure brightness if I map other buttons. Just function keys don't work. I've tested it on opensuse 12.3 kde and gnome running 3.7 kernel: both are affected. Opensuse 12.2 with previous kernel didn't have such quirks. What causes this quirks.
I cannot adjust the brightness of my display using the Fn keys or the Control Panel... I have already had to replace my battery once... I need to be able to adjust the brightness in order save my battery life!
