I just noticed that the green hotkeys volume bar has disappeared from two R500’s (2714-CTO) that I own. Both are running Windows 7 professional. One is running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit, while The other is running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. The 64 bit machine has just been re-imaged from a set of original Lenovo supplied recovery DVD’s. The reload process installed Norton Internet Security (2009). After the re-load was complete, I installed Windows 7 SP1 from an original Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 DVD. Next, I manually installed the latest version of Update Retriever and System Update, turned on the antenna for the first time, and ran System Update to update all Lenovo drivers.
The other machine has been running Windows 7 professional 32 bit since being purchased in 2009. It has never been re-imaged, and the green volume bar was working until recently.
Both are currently running Hotkey Features Integration V3.89.0000, and Lenovo Power Management V1.67.04.05.
which software, and which version of that software, is needed to get that functionality back.
On hp pavilion dv7-1232nr the sound volume signal that appears on the screen any time the volume is adjusted is not functioning as before ! is there any point or option that is being clicked on or off to disable this signal !
for some reason the on screen display meter for my volume when pressing on the keyboard suddenly disappeared, I would like to get this back. I found this thread in the forum URL.... which another was having the same problem I'm having. The only difference is that I'm using HP Pavilion G7 with Windows 7.
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 ?

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.
after some microsoft updates my Elitebook 8570W doesnt show me my brightness and volume bar anymore. sometimes when i restart my notebook he does show but after i plug in my BOSE portable via the headphone output he doesnt show it anymore (which he did before the updates).
i know you probably got this question alot and i searched a bit of the forum but couldnt quite get the right awnser. (and im not that familiar with HP but im quite confortable with).
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.
Problem: I have just installed Windows 7 professional, after installing all drivers (bios, video, audio, touchpad etc - all standard drivers) there are no bar appearing when i press F9-F10 (volume bar) and F2-F3 (broghtness bar) - there were bars before for sure (volume bar with Beats icon and bar itself). Functionally it works, but no visual appearing.
Also, if you are watching a video on YouTube and pressing volume up and down on keypad (F9-F10)- the volume is changing, but the indication under video itself is freezing.
I have tried many times to reinstall audio driver but it doesnt solve the problem.
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.
I have an aspire5734z laptop and can no longer control the volume with the Fn up arrow/down arrow buttons. Have no display of vol,wireless or cap lock any more. I've been through everything I can think of in control panel and can't find an answer.
I have an Hp Pavilion Enternainment PC (HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC), 64bit, Windows 7, Service Pack 1. The pc is integrated with a HP xb4 Notebook Media Docking Station and a HP 2509m flat screen monitor. Unless I have turned the volume completely off, I continually get a volume icon (showing the current volume setting) intermittently displaying in the center of the flat screen monitor. I am unable to move it to any other location on the flat screen display or to the pc monitor.
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 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.
I have an Acer 5672. It has the media keys on the left side of the keyboard where i can control the volume, stop, pause etc. I reformatted my machine and reinstalled XP Pro. When i use the media keys there is no display on the screen of what i am doing. What i mean is before if i turned the volume up or down it would display on the screen and you would see like a volume bar moving up or down. How do i get that back?
I'm testing out my Blu-Ray drive and I notice that the volume on the playback in WinDVD is very low. I have to max out the volume in Win 7 just to be able to hear the audio through the notebook speakers.
The movie I'm testing is Ice Age 3. I have the DVD and the blu-ray version. The DVD plays very loud via WMP. The blu-ray volume leaves a lot to be desired.
I notice a significant difference in volume levels on my FW490. When listening to music via iTunes, or to Sirius online, the levels are adequate. However when I watch a dvd (Bluray or regular), even after turning the speaker volume as high as it will go, the volume is very weak. Is this normal? Headphone volume is fine btw. Is there a setting that boost volume when playing dvd's? Otherwise I will be buying notebook speakers.
I just could not get multimedia keys and volume keys to work (the ones above the F keys, next to the power button)
I have just upgraded my VGN-CS11S/Q to Windows 7 - 64 Bit. I have updated the FEPD driver via windows update, and installed the utilities in following order:
Sony Shared Library [reboot] Vaio Event Service [reboot] Setting Utility Series [reboot] [reboot] [reboot]
but no luck. Than, I have reformatted the system (actually, I have restored the image file, but is was a clean installation without any utils / drivers anyway) and installed the utilities in another order as follows:
Vaio Event Service [reboot] Sony Shared Library [reboot] Setting Utilitiy Series [reboot]
still no luck. FN keys does work, and little OSD screen comes up as well when I use FN + volume up - volume down keys. But multimedia keys and volume keys (which is the one with lights) insisting on not working.
i bought a Sony VGN-AW31XY/Q notebook. Fast processor, 2 SSDs, 18.4" display, 8GB ram AND a antiglare display.
BUT it's a wide gamut display and i'm a webdesigner. I didn't know there is such a huge difference between this and a "normal" display. Red and green are oversaturated like hell.
My question: HOW or CAN i change the colors to "normal"? The point is, calibrating Photoshop or any other color managed software is no problem. But i need color mangagement for ANY other software too (Flash, Google Chrome and so on). There must be a solution.
Isn't there a tool that loads on startup where i can adjust the colors? Not only brightness, contrast and gamma levels but saturation and hue also?
