Question about Computers & Internet
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.
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.
Cheers and best wishes
