    This is a problem I have as well, it's absolutely ridicules. Sometimes it'll even go away after a few moments, only to come back the moment I move my mouse or the laptop itself.

    THIS WORKS!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH. Copy and paste but don't put the periods after exe, which I did at first. This is from Hewlett Packard, so it is safe.

I have the same problem and did a little looking around. I found a way to avoid the problem not to fix it. I have a dv9933cl with Vista (64bit). Go the the search bar under the menu and search 'msconfig'. Under one of the tabs on the screen that appears after clicking 'Open msconfig' there will be a list of checked items. One of the items is named 'Quick Touch On Screen Display' deselect this item. Click 'Ok'. It should then prompt you to restart your computer. Do so. Your volume Touch Sensitive keys should now work properly with any application open but you will not get a display to show you the current volume level. If anyone finds futher infor please let me know. Hope this helps.

I have problems with my quick touch buttons. The volume will adjust itself randomly, locking the mouse etc.. Also the wifi button will stop responding sometimes and randomly start working again.


Hi,


Try this,


1. Click combination of buttons on your keyboard Windows+R -> Type MSCONFIG -> OK -> Continue -> Go to Startup Tab in the System Configuration -> Uncheck "HP Quicktouch On Screen Display Item" -> Restart Your computer.

It disables the on screen display of the volume control.

I have an HP Pavilion dv 7 notebook pc. not sure why... in the middle of my screen a bar shows up with the word "volume" and a sound bar indicating that volume is twitching between 35% and 50%...


The volume slider on your laptop is failing or having problems, I have had this issue my self it is usually caused by dirt and grime, so you may want to give it a good cleaning or residual heat from the processor. I'm posting the link to an hp support thread below, with several other fixes not mentioned here. I hope I could Help.

Light-up volume bars on the hp pc notebook dv7 1132nr


Hi Folks....
If you are talking about the Quick Launch buttons of the Notebooks from where we usually increase, decrease or mute the Volume, the lights will be still and will not increase or decrease with the increase or decrease in Volume.
However, you do have a utility which should be preinstalled in Notebooks called HP Quick Touch which shows the bars on the Display when the volume is Increased or Decreased  using the Quick Launch buttons. This application is not compatible with Windows Vista 64 bit edition.
The HP Quick Touch application is available for download from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38358.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install the application.
Hope this helps....

Volume buttons


Hello Gavrilov,

As I understand that you are facing issue with the Qucik Touch buttons of the volume on the notebook.

If this is correct, install the Quick Touch buttons drivers on the notebook.
Here are the drivers for Quick touch buttons:

Windows XP:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp29501-30000/sp29528.exe

or

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39425.exe



Windows Vista:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38266.exe
