It sounds like your drivers aren't installed. If you go to www.hp.com and click on click on Support and Drivers, enter in your model info you can download the drivers and install from their website. Drivers are programs that let your computer know about certain hardware. There should be a driver for each piece of hardware, video, sound, etc.

Function keys not working on hp probook 4440


Identifying the hot keys
A hot key is a combination of the fn key and either the esc key or one of the function keys.
To use a hot key:
Briefly press the fn key, and then briefly press the second key of the hot key combination.
Hot key combination Description
fn+esc Displays information about system hardware components and the system BIOS version number.
fn+f1 Initiates Sleep, which saves your information in system memory. The display and other system
components turn off and power is conserved.
To exit Sleep, briefly press the power button.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of information loss, save your work before initiating Sleep.
fn+f2 Decreases the screen brightness level.
fn+f3 Increases the screen brightness level.
fn+f4 Switches the screen image among display devices connected to the system. For example, if a
monitor is connected to the computer, fn+f4 alternates the screen image from computer display to
monitor display to simultaneous display on both the computer and the monitor.
Most external monitors receive video information from the computer using the external VGA video
standard. The fn+f4 hot key can also alternate images among other devices that are receiving video
information from the computer.
fn+f5 Initiates the QuickLock security feature. QuickLock protects your information by displaying the
operating system Log On window. While the Log On window is displayed, the computer cannot be
accessed until a Windows user password or a Windows administrator password is entered.
NOTE: Before you can use QuickLock, you must set a Windows user password or a Windows
administrator password. For instructions, see Help and Support. To access Help and support, from
the Start screen, type help, and then select Help and Support.
fn+f6 Displays charge information for all installed batteries. The display indicates which batteries are
charging and reports the amount of charge remaining in each battery.
fn+f7 Mutes or restores speaker sound.
fn+f8 Decreases speaker volume.
fn+f9 Increases speaker volume.
fn+f10 Plays the previous track of an audio CD or the previous section of a DVD or a BD.
32 Chapter 4 Pointing devices and keyboardHot key combination Description
fn+f11 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD, a DVD, or a BD.
fn+f12 Plays the next track of an audio CD or the next section of a DVD or a BD.

HP Pavilion DV6-1359WM, has a volume control touch pad area located at the top. It's not a driver issue or a setting. This is how you fix it. It worked for me and for some other people....

1. Shut down your laptop.
2. Unplug the power.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Push and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
5. Reinstall the battery.
6. Plug power back in.
7. Boot

Enjoy :) brought to you by high DanK Inc.

My screen is blank except for the arrow. I've rebooted several times but nothing comes back up. The lights at the top, i.e. DVD, play, ff, stop, mute and volume, are on and won't toggle.


Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer

HP pavilion laptop dv2120us wireless nic intermittent failure


I think you have a suspect hard drive on your laptop. It is slowly failing. Hopefully you have got the Recovery CD/DVD for it. Not sure what OS you are running. I suppose it will be Vista. You can download disk test utility Seatools from Seagate website and it will give you an indication of the state of your drive. I think this model of HP laptop used a very cheap generic brand disk drive. Best to replace with Seagate or WD of same capacity as your present one. It will be hard to get data back if you do not have backups. Hope this helps.

There is one screw on the bottom of the machine that removes the CD right above the memory cover. It may even have an icon of a CD for it. then it should slide out the side.
