Is my volume control working correctly? The touch thing at the left. It changes the volume in blocks of 2, but even 2 blocks is quite loud and very difficult to set it at 2 blocks in the first place. Normally it goes to 4 blocks then 0 volume and takes time to set it at 2. Having to set the volume using the bottom right icon atm.
Is there anyway to get it more accurate and have a better range of volumes in the lower levels?. I did uninstall a lot of the junk programs that came with it but not launch manager
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.

My computer gets all current HP/Microsoft updates automatically.My volume control moves up and down automatically. I can choose mute and it will not stay muted. I have turned off my built-in microphone. I had to unistall my HP SmartMenu controls because the buttons wouldn't respond and the on-screen volume display would activate every time the windows volume control would move causing me not to be able to play any games. I have ran MSE and MalwareBytes and have not found any viruses or ad/spyware that is causing the trouble. I don't' know what to do..I really don't want to have to go through the process of windows re-install or game re-installing.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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?
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 have a HP Pavilion g6-2210sa, product number is C6S45EA#ABU Volume occasionally works fine, but mostly does not. It sometimes works when I turn laptop on and then after a few minutes it doesn't work. If I restart, it sometimes starts working again but mostly does not. I have followed HP instructions for audio problems on this website however I cannot seem to fix this.
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.
i have downloaded Catalyst Control Center several times but it is still not working. I have Paviliion dv6-6120se, AMD radeon hd 6490M and built-in intel GPU hd 3000 both GPUs is working fine but the problem started when i uninstalled the Catalyst Control Center in order to get a new updated one from AMD website. But the AMD site said my version of radeon hd 6490M is not supported anyway i have tried everything i uninstalled the ATI GPU driver and install it again. Somehow I downloaded Catalyst Control Center the and the installation finished and the same problem it is still not working. Now i lost the Catalyst Control Center and the switchable graphics config.
Just yesterday, 7-31-14, my mother was downloading pictures onto my HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15 Notebook PC. When she finished, I wanted to watch a video on YouTube so I got on the computer, but on the lockscreen I couldn't swipe and so I had to click and when I got to my password place, there was no touch-screen keyboard that usually pops up there. And now I can't play some of my games and I lost some of the abilities that this awesome laptop brings me.My mother said the only button she pressed was the f5 button at the top of the keyborad. Is that the problem?
I got this Notebook a couple of months ago at The Source in Alberta Canada. Worked fine for a week or so and then the touch screen began to stop working intermittently. Once or twice it seemed that cleaning the (not dirty) screen worked but not anymore. It has just stopped working completely for the past month or so. I've tried glass cleaner on a napkin and on a microfiber cloth..all the way to the edges and nothing. I've run all the troubleshooters, driver updates...everything is up to date and working properly or so they say.
every time I change the volume it goes into the separate volume popup window and whatever else I'm doing gets minimized if it was fullscreened, it's really annoying. How do I turn this off? I've been told by a HP custom service guy to uninstall Quick Touch, but I can't even find it anywhere.
(are there any other things I can do to optimize this computer?)
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 Have a HP DV6T QUAD and reinstalled Windows 7. When I touch the volume on my keyboard to increase or decrease the volume, it would appear on the screen for 1 second. Now after reinstalling, it doesn't show on the screen anymore when I touch the volume increase decrease on my laptop.
Just lookin' over the spec's on the new iphone and I noticed that the headphones now support volume control. I didn't see this fact listed before anywhere else or during the keynote... Its about time apple! The only major downside is that they are not enabling the feature on the 3G iphone. [url]
