I have a HP dv2988nr and whenever i adjust the volume the little volume indicator does not go away and it freezes or lags everything else that i am doing. It eventually goes away after several minutes.
Re: Volume screen doesn't go away when its adjusted
This is what I read and it works great
"..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.."

Uninstall the driver and audio software associated with the soundcard, and reinstall with the latest drivers from the HP site. That may remedy the problem. You also might want to scan the hard drive for errors. It is possible that the driver or the utility got corrupted by improper shutdown. Check for viruses and spyware. I hope you have a decent anti-virus installed. Norton, McAfee and Trend Micro don't really do much and they don't detect a lot of stuff. AVG is a free AV/AS software that works well and updates daily. Kaspersky is also good, but they have no free version and if you are not careful it can disable important Windows functions. Last ditch would be reinstall Windows and see if it fixes it. If it doesn't then there is an issue with the sound card or the motherboard.

Acer laptops are typically sold with
pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features
for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem
with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute
all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume,
fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with
the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner
to open a rectangular window with a slide control.

drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.

If this does not work then it is likely to be a hardware problem, the only real soluition being to take it to a tech shop for a check over. It is however, much more likely to be software based and the driver update should fix it.

is it an entertainment pc? if it is there is a flaw with the soft crappy cover they put instead of actual buttons. you have to take it off like you were going to replace the kb and follow the wire and make sure its plugged in good and not touching any metal or any other wires and put the cover back and make sure its snapped in all the way. had this on two so far.
