HP/Compaq :: Willrelease Updates For Media And Quick Launch Touch Pad Drivers For Windows 7
Jun 18, 2009
This is what I have, and I imagine HP probably use the same drivers for most of its late model laptops on windows 7 for the touch activated media button i.e. the back lit strip above the keyboard just below the LED screen that let you activate WIFI, sound. playback..etc..
I have read from several posts that windows 7 install fine on HP laptop just that the touch strip driver does not work with the factory drivers.
Are both needed for the volume and mute keys to work as well as play/paul skip etc? I am running into an issue on bootup where something sort of drags and I think its the software that goes with these buttons. If I try to use the system to early I can crash explorer. I was able to do this on two brand new laptops. Or would I be better installing the lastest Sound driver, quick touch?
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.
It came with vista installed and when i pressed the volume buttons on top of the keyboard a gray bar used to come indicating the volume...but when i installed Windows 7 the gray bar is not coming....even though the buttons function properly(that is volume goes up and down) (pressing the volume touch button increases the volume, but does not display the volume slider window on the screen)
I even installed the latest HP Quick launch buttons Windows 7 driver:
I've got a new dv7t. I did a clean install of vista and then installed the latest quick launch drivers from the hp site (6.4 or so). Is there supposed to be a way to configure what these buttons (besides the wireless, mute and volume) do?
I bought a HP dv4 1242TX in may 2009. Except for the heating problem, it was working okay till last week. The quick launch buttons (qlb) have gone berserk. The volume reaches the maximum level and stays there even on reducing it through or manually. It temporarily goes down and as soon I remove my finger from the qlb, the volume goes to maximum level. I have downloaded and installed the latest driver for qlb's but the problem persists. Due to this, the other qlb's for wlan, quick play, play stop etc are not working. I do not know what seems to be the problem and my warranty period also got over.
How can i change the email quicklaunch button to open an email client other than outlook.I set mozilla's thunderbird as my default email client during its installation, but the quicklaunch button still opens outlook.
I just bought my Acer Aspire V5-552g a week ago. Everything seems to be working fine. However, Windows advised me to install updates which I did. After installing the updates the touch gestures are not working anymore. I tried updating my drivers, which I downloaded from the Acer support site, but it did not work. All gestures are not working. What I need to do. Is this a result of updating Windows? How can I undo the update?
I took delivery of a HDX16 - 1030EA last week. The MUTE button works but does not go white, it is continually red even when sound is playing. I have uninstalled the quick launch software & re-installed same. No difference.
I am running Vista home premium 64 & used the 64 drivers.
I have a HP 2000t-2d00 Notebook PC with Windows 8.1 operating system. The computer was repaired recently, but when I bought it, it had originally came with the HP Quick Start icon (square blue tile-like appearance with the rocket/NOT a shortcut with an arrow in it!)
After it was repaired, the original official HP Quick start icon was on the desktop.However, something happened, and the original official HP Quick Start icon is gone from the desktop!how to get the original HP Quick Start icon (square blue tile-like in appearance with the rocket) back onto my desktop.how to create a shortcut! I'm admittedly picky and like to have certain things on the desktop exactly the way they were when I first got the computer.
I have a Acer 6935G which I have recently installed Windows 7 on (x64). Windows found most of the drivers, audio included. I then downloaded the Windows Vista version of Launch Manager (version 22.214.171.124), and installed - and yes, everything worked great.
That is, until I found I had an issue with my microphone in Skype. I had ALOT of audio noise coming through when using the mic... I realised this was because the gain was up too high, however to reduce the microphone gain (or boost), it was impossible with the stock Windows 7 drivers.
So? I went to Realtek's website and downloaded the newest Realtek HD Audio driver - for Windows 7. I installed this, and then low and behold, in the Audio manager, I found that the mic boost was set to +20db! I removed this boost, and my audio issues were fix! Horray... Or at least, so I thought.
Upon doing this, I realised that the new Realtek audio drivers had some how stopped Launch Manager from working correctly. The "e", web and e-mail buttons all work fine, however the touch screen audio slider, mute button, etc. do not register when I press them.
Even before installing Launch Manager, on a fresh install, the mute button would work!
So this led me to go down the route that Launch Manager, and specifically the "Cinedash" part (volume controls etc) were trying to control the wrong audio device. In my audio devices, I have two "playback devices" listed, Speakers (on Realtek High Definition Audio) and Realtek Digital Output (also on Realtek High Definition Audio).
I went ahead and disabled the latter (Realtek Digital Output), but no, nothing... the controls on the cinedash still didn't do anything!
So, i decided I'd uninstall the Realtek drivers i'd just installed. After doing that? Nothing! The cinedash audio controls STILL don't control my audio!.......
I had formatted by G42 HP Laptop after which brightness keys , f2 and f3 are not working.
I was told to install quick launch software for it from this link - [URL]... which I had tried to install however , was told that I already have a Quick lauch in my PC .When I checked , I already have a 2012 Quick Lauch software installed in Crive which I tried to run , repair and also uninstalled and installed the same again however , f2 and f3 still not working.
I also , tried to install the new software from the link mentioned however , f2 and f3 still not working . I have to use laptop daily and brightness needs to be adjusted .
My computer laptop is Dell XPS L401X. The problem is that my Instant Launch Manager key and another media touch key " Realtek HD Audio Manager " aren't work, but the Windows Mobility Center touch key is work. What happens to my computer right now and i really feel bad about it. Also, i wonder what the driver name of those media touch keys.
I am getting error code 80070490 every time I try to do Windows updates. I have done the system restore as far back as I could and this did not solve the problem. I am going to be putting a new hard drive in the computer, but would like this problem to be resolved first.
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 got a new hp tx2 and when i turn it on it came loaded full of "crap" so i wanted to reload 7.. and they didnt send an OS cd... So i went ahead and created a recovery cd and when i reloaded still had all the crap installed.. so i called them up, and was told that HP can not provide me with an OEM CD.. they can only "sell" me a recovery cd which has all their software and drivers preloaded.... So the technical guy is right? i cant get Windows OEM media from them? how stupid is this? dell, toshiba, fujitso, sony send the cds but hp doesnt and they dont even give you an option to buy it.....
