    I have a dv4-1125nr and I am having the same problem. Chat support is trying to force me to mail it in for service since the agents don't know what to do.

This could be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the audio drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find he sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then go to HP's support site and check for any updated sound drivers or patches. If it's a glitch this will fix it. Keep in mind that it could also be a hardware problem with the mute switch, so if the driver procedure doesn't work, you might consider having it serviced.

ProBook 6450b mute button on keyboard is always orange


Is the volume muted or not when the light is orange? If it is muted then use the icon on task bar and increase the volume, to see if color changes. If it is not muted and a change of volume does not affect the color of the light, maybe that is the normal color for it. Did you read the manual and find that orange means trouble. On my computer, the light for my WifI is always orange.
The speakers may be muted by an Fn +Fx key sequence, or some additional buttons on the computer.

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1232nr, the mute button and the wireless button on the top touch pad has quit working along with the volume slider. Any suggestions?


My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.

Put Phone on Mute while on conference call


The button for handsfree is the same button for Mute.
So when you are on the handsfree call, press the handsfree button again and the call is muted on your side.

To talk again, press the handsfree button to un-mute the call, then press it again to mute your call.

To hang up press the orange RLS button.

Is there a mute option while I am on a call?


The mute button is the top right button, it's a clear colored button. When it's lit and orange it's muted.
