Right click on the desktop and you should get a drop down box that includes Graphics Options. In there you can change the Rotation for your display.

Right mouse click on a blank spot on the desktop. Click personalize if using windows vista, properties if using xp. The options for desktop display are there. Other option is do this through the control panel in your start menu. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Volume controls?

The quick specs from HP does not show a volume control. Most laptops are designed this way. All volume controls will be located on screen unless you have touch lights across the top of the keyboard, which in that case there would be 3 speaker icons (one is mute, and the others are volume Up/Down).

What is the felt strip called that is across the top of my laptop where the power button is. The strip is missing and I would like to replace it. Compaq 6720s. It is above where the keyboard is and is...

HP doesn't list it in their Service Manual. No part number given.

This link should take you directly to the heading - Service and maintenance information
Click on the first file listed,
HP Compaq 6720s Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on the + sign to the left of - Illustrated parts catalog.
Now click on - Computer major components
(You may wish to make the view size smaller. Click on the Zoom Out icon { - } at the top)

This is page 14 in the PDF file page number box. (At the top of the PDF file)
Scroll through to Page 30.
No listing for a separate felt strip.

Haven't worked on one yet. I would be willing to guess that the felt strip is part of the Keyboard, (Page 50)
I don't think it's part of the Switch Cover. (Page 48)

IMHO I would buy a piece of felt with the dimensions and thickness you need, and install it myself.
You now have the Service Manual.
(I suspect some form of rubber cement is used to tack the felt into place)

BEFORE you begin!
Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Read Page 33 to 35 first.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

keyboard doesn't work usually caused the path of the key on the keyboard is dirty by the dust and liquid.
1. remove the keyboard from the laptop (see instruction how to replace keyboard)

You need to check your keyboard setting layout , look for it in your control panel and change the layout to either uk or us, which ever applies to you.
