I recently formatted my laptop to windows 7 ultimate and since then can not get my function keys to work. I've reinstalled drivers that I thought might work and nothing.
When I could no longer adjust my brightness is when I noticed that my function keys were not working. Is there any other way to adjust the brightness on my laptop besides the function keys? If so I have not figured it out.
I just bought new HP Probook 470 G1 computer, and I can't make the FN button working with F7/F8 or F9/F10 which is useful for brightnes and volume. When i press FN + F3 computer goes to sleep mode, but other functions doesn't work.
I have been trying to download HP Quick Launch Buttons (International) , HP Softpaq Donload Manager, trying to change options in BIOS and still nothing...How to make these buttons work?
My brightness function keys are not working. Other function keys like music player, mute etc are working fine in my windows 7 os. My Model no is 15-r006TU. I have installed all display drivers and checked action key settings in my BIOS settings. Nothing works.
I purchased HP Pavilion 15-n209TX Laptop this year and the functions keys were working properly. But, later on from 10th of May 2014, they are not working! I checked whether there was a software due to which it was happening, but, I didn't install any kind of software which can harm the functioning of the keys. I am really struggling with very low brightness. The latest thing I did was - windows update - which installed the following softwares
Also, I installed HP Quick fix.
Whenever I press F2 or F3, it just shows the slidebar (it doesn't go up and down though) and when I click on the top of the slidebar, nothing happens again. I also tried to go to the brightness option in the Windows Mobility Centre and tried to adjust the brightness - but nothing is happening.
I just recently purchased the HP Probook 450 G1. The laptop doesn't come with any OS installed so I intalled windows 7 64-bit. After installing all drivers I see in Device manager screen that my Display Adapters are
AMD Radeon HD 8600/8700 Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600
but in the shop they said that my video adapter is AMD Radeon HD 8750M
My question is: are AMD Radeon HD 8600/8700 and AMD Radeon HD 8750M the same "things".
I bought new HP G4-1037 tu laptop............ I installed Synaptics version 126.96.36.199..........All things are working properly but the ON/OFF button on top left with indication light is not working .......How i can activate this feature of touchpad..
Having kind of a strange problem with my lappy and Win7. My mute button has no reaction on pressing it while all other media buttons still do their actions. Does someone also have the same issue as mine with m1330 and Win7 ?
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 QuickSet and Sigmatel drivers for Vista x64 installed (Had same issue with Windows 7 default audio drivers)
I have a brand new ProBook 430 G2 (SKU # G6W35EA#ABB) with Windows 8.1, fully updated. I find that every 10-15 minutes, the left button on the trackpad becomes unresponsive. The trackpad still moves the mouse pointer and the right button continues to work, but the left button does not react. This lasts for several minutes, perhaps 3-4. Then the left button resumes working as if nothing had happened. Since the button resumes working, I suspect it is more likely to be a software issue with the driver or Windows 8.1.
I have Synaptics TouchPad driver version 188.8.131.52, the current version of the driver. I have Windows 8.1 version 6.3.9600. I have Bios version HP M74 version 1.03 (07/07/2014)
I've recently bought an HP Probook430 and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and I don't seem to be able to change the display brightness, using the fn button+f9/f10 (although volume settings are changed in the same method smoothly).
Although the brightness settings don't seem to change, this bar does appear when pressing fn+f9/f10. What should I do in order to make the display brightness settings changable?
When I turn my laptop on, the blue light on the power on button lights for 6 seconds, meanwhile the led near the power plug on right side rapidly blinks 13 times. Always exactly 13 times, so it must be some kind of error code. Then laptop shuts down. Nothing is heard, neither fan, neither hard disk.
I recently had to reinstall windows on my XPS 15 (l521x) and i now have the F-keys working with their assaigned function (Brightness, play/pause, volume, etc) however, the graphic overlays no longer appear.
For example - Fn + Brightness^ - will increase brightness but with no graphic showing what the current brightness level is.
My 3.3 year old HDX 16T-1000 CTO Premium Notebook PC's display no longer functions. Upon cold boot, the display nearly always comes on but flickers at about 1/2 brightness. If I twist the display, sometimes I can get it to come on at full brightness. Upon letting go though, the display goes black. The only way I can get it to turn back on is to put the notebook to sleep and then wake it up. The display comes back on for about 2 seconds (mostly at 1/2 brightness) and then goes black again.
I do get a normal display when I connect to an HDTV via the HDMI output. HP's techs had me download and reinstall the chipset, NIVIDIA video driver and BIOS software. This made no difference whatsoever.
Since I can get the display to turn on intermittently, could the problem be just a worn video cable or something more serious?
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 recently downgraded my G710 from Windows 8 (which it came with), to Windows 7. The only issue I've noticed is that it does not display anything on screen when you use the function keys, such as the volume up or down, or bright ness up or down. The keys work, but it would be nice to see on screen that my volume is set at 2% vs say 100% when I'm turning it up or down.
I have a Lenovo G480 that runs on windows 7 64 bit. I reformatted it and i noticed that when i perform a fn+key the display notification no longer shows. It works though but i wanted to see the display notification on the screen every time i perform i do fn+key.
Recently bought a dell inspiron 11 and after completing the latest windows update the autorotate function does not work at all. I am still able to rotate the screen using the cntl alt arrow keys, however I miss the convenience of the auto rotate. Also the keyboard is not disable until totally being flipped into tablet position. All drivers and components show to be working in the device manager. I have looked into all of the video settings and auto rotate is not listed as n option. Again, I noticed the problem after I did the latest windows update.
The function keys on my keyboards are working in the opposite manner. Whenever I press any of the keys from F1 to F12 they perform the multimedia actions or their enhanced action. For example, if I press the F2 key the brightness of my laptop screen would lower. It should not work like this. I should be pressing Fn+F2 for the brightness of my screen to lower. The problem here is that I can't use Alt+F4 to close windows because its reversed, I instead have to press Alf+Fn+F4.
I have already search for an answer online and I can only find that NumLock is supposed to be locked. But, it's a laptop - I have no such key.
In the hp.com configuration options for the ProBook 4710s, they show 3 options:
1. 17.3-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD+6 (1600 x 900) without camera 2. 17.3-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD+6 (1600 x 900) with camera (must select NQ004AV) 3. 17.3-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD+6 (1600 x 900) BrightView with camera (must select NQ004AV)
I thought LED-backlit was good enough, but option #3 is LED-backlit BRIGHTVIEW... Is this a brighter, "better" screen than option #1 or #2? I'm afraid of ordering this and getting another lemon of a "Brightview" screen like my dv7t screen.
What's "HD+6" ... what does "plus six" do for me ?
I don't see an "NQ004AV" option on the order page, either...
HP is just terrible at explaining these things.
Regarding the keyboard ... it's hard to tell from the pictures at Engadget whether this new chiclet keyboard is backlit or not ... HP doesn't say it is backlit, would be awesome if it was.
