I recent did Microsoft and Lenovo updates and I have lost the On-Screen Volumn display. Not the Volumn icon in the task bar, I lost the display that shows the volumn going up or down on the screen. The video support suggested installing Power Management but this did not work. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the audio drivers, also did not work.
I've been recovering from a virus and am trying to get things back to the way I had them and I've noticed something different about the volume meter. First off my volume indicator was missing, when I hit the volume buttons nothing showed up on screen. I realized I needed to install the energy mangement driver and did so. The issue is that I don't care for the appearance of the volume meter. It has yellowish green buttons and the volume increases and decreases by 5 with one press of the volume buttons. The volume meter that I had previously was a white white bar that increased and decreased by 1 each time I hit a volume button. I liked this design a lot better. I'm trying to figure out what version of the energy management driver I had previously that would allow my volume and brightness indicators to be the white bar instead of they yellowish green buttons. My machine type is 2359 and model is CTO with Windows 7 64 bit.
I downgraded from win 8 to win 7 with a clean install and although I have the sound workling I cant find the correct driver in other forum posts to get beats audio installed. Link to the correct download :
Also I would like to get the on screen volume indicator back.
How can I increase volume without the UP arrow key? Normally do Fn-Up. Volume is only issue (can page up then down to scroll). Control panel options look like they increase volume, but they don't. Windows troubleshooting deals only with the sound card, which is fine. (Old laptop, so I don't want to replace the key).
I have a Dell 17R 5721 Windows 8. I updated the Dell Quickset app, Digital Delivery app and the Realtek Audio Hi Def driver. Now I see that my Waves Maxx Audio 4 function is missing and F11 and F12 aren't working to increase/decrease volume. I've found several related posts, but for different computers, so they don't work for me. how to restore things back to the original factory condition?
Ok after 3 days of using the 1340 I just realized the button on the top panel that you can use to increase/decrease volume stopped working. I had updated the latest drivers from Dell site but not sure if that is the reason.
Also non of the other buttons that are for DVD work either. And I know they were working when I got the laptop and only thing I have done is update with latest drivers.
I updated the BIOS to 2.26 a while ago and ever since then there's no on-screen indication of caps lock on/off, screen brightness or volume when I change it. Since it seemed to be affected by BIOS, I updated again to 2.27 just now, but the problem persists. I needed to update the Hotkeys Feature Integration by downloading the utility thingy from this page. Probably wasn't a BIOS thing after all.
Acer R7-572-6423 Windows 8.1 Bought April 28, 2014.
Issue: I get a black screen permanently now. When connected to wall battery indicator is blue, I touch the power button, power indicator turns blue for 7 seconds then turns off. Nothing happens. Screen doesn't power, can't hear any fans, etc. Same issue when not connected to wall.
There was a BIOS update version 2.04 which fixed a problem "2. Revise system can't boot when "Exit Discarding Changes" was selected in BIOS menu." I believe that's my issue.
Is there any recovery method that can be done at home to get it out of this state?
Here's a video from another user with the same laptop and identical problem but no fix : [URL] ....
Another user suggested sending in the laptop to have the EPROM replaced but never said why or if it fixed it.
Tried: pinhole button to reset the system removed battery, hard drive looked for crimped wires in hinge going to screen
Every time I press caps lock, change volume i got a notification pops up that often messes up the window focus. It's particularly annoying when trying to play games. Can I turn this off?
I searched around for other people having the same problem and the one solution I got was to change Hkey_Local_MachineSoftwareWidcommBTConfigGeneral KeyIndication to 0, but that's already set to 0 for me, and I'm still getting notifications. The solution with removing "lockkey.exe" is not working as well. I just don't have program like this.
I have reformatted and reinstalled the OS. For some reason, my laptop would not accept a clean install of xp pro. it continually gave me a bsod and would not allow me to format the drive. after spending half the night with dell, and telling them i was going to shoot my computer, he convinced me to use the mce disk that came with the laptop. i asked him if it was going to install all the crap that intially came with the computer...he said no The computer decided it liked the mce disk, and allowed me to format and install the os again. it then got to a screen that said installing programs, do not push button. i pushed. and to my surprise it did not install hardly any of the bloatware that dell was trying to give to me. i got like the first 2 and nothing else! i have now updated all drivers, reinstalled programs, and am in the process of backing up the hard drive to an exteranl with acronis. I went from 76 plus processes to around 47-49 on average.
I have got a thinkpad x61 with win 7 pro x64. A few days ago I installed hotkeys drivers from Lenovo. On Screen Display problem: when I press volume up/down Button the volume decreases completely. To make louder or dim the volume I have to hold the buttons. All the other hotkeys functions work . why? what I have to do?
I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and everything seems fine, apart from a couple of minor things. When I had the original Vista installation when I pressed the mute button on my media control panel it lit up blue, since the upgrade the light doesn't respond.
Also when I turn on the volume on the media control panel the volume changes but I no longer get the graphic on the screen telling me what number its at.
i have a problem i brought a laptop with windows 7 on it and it had some type of software to show it show volume levels on the screen (OSD) i reinstalled windows because i wanted the x64 verison of windows so i could use all 4gb of my ram, i looked around the only software i found was QuickTouch and there is the version out for windows 7, does any one know what the softwares call preinstalled on the dv6 ?
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 reinstalled windows on my laptop, and I go to re enroll my fingerprint with the fingerprint reader. The Fingerprint reader suite says I have no fingers enrolled, but when I go to enroll my finger again, it says the fingerprint is already enrolled. But I can't find it anywhere. I'm assuming the saved fingerprints are saved to the device itself, but I can't seem to import the saved prints.
I have a 3-yr old Thinkpad T500 laptop w/ XP. My on-screen volume and brightness displays have recently disappeared. Spoke with customer support and was advised to download all the machine updates....did that, but still not working.
Studio XPS 1647 laptop can't boot past POST and stuck at Dell splash screen with progress bar at ~80%. After holding down FN and pressing the power button, all three volume LEDS would flash twice, immediately followed by the volume UP and DOWN keys flashing, and then followed by just the Volume Down LED flashing.
Recently my Studio XPS 1647 has had overheat problems, and sometimes they would cause BSOD with broken screen images. The BSOD always came with bcode 116 error: this is apparently video card related. So last weekend I opened the case, removed the heat sink and the fan. The heat sink vent was completely blocked with a thick layer of dirt, so it's no wonder for overheating. I cleaned up the heatsink vent and the fan, cleaned up the top of CPU chip and the top of GPU chip, reapplied thermal paste and put everything back together. After that, the machine couldn't pass the Dell splash screen on boot. I've already checked the discussions here and followed suggestions on holding down the power button to remove static, reseating the memory card etc., but they are of no use.
Finally I followed the instructions on starting up ePSA. I've tried it repeatedly, and every time the boot always stuck at the Dell splash screen with the progress bar at about 80% with or without applying ePSA. The SPA screen never came up if I held down FN+Power button. The difference between a generic boot and a PSA boot is that if I held down FN+Power button, all three volume LEDS would flash twice, immediately followed by the volume UP and DOWN keys flashing, and then followed by just the Volume Down LED flashing.
I've read from a few discussions talking about all three volume LEDS flashing would be a motherboard problem. But in my case it's three LEDs flashing twice, followed by volume UP and DOWN keys flashing once, and then followed by just the Volume Down LED flashing continuously. What this PSA blinking code means?
