Question about Computers & Internet
The device is active and is paired to my computer, but I cannot access the control panel. I have tried to re-initialize the device but nothing works.
Your computer must have a sound card, or audio card, to produce sound. It takes input from media on the computer (websites, media players or programs) and translates, sending the signal to output from the computer (speakers or headphones). This sound card could be a separate device or a part of the motherboard of your computer. Either way, unless you built your computer, it came already installed with all the components for transmitting that sound to you.
When you click on your media player or try to adjust your computer's sound or volume, a message comes on the screen saying "No Audio Device." You not only have an audio device, but it had previously been working. When the input (software or media) cannot locate the sound card to translate that signal for your speakers or headphones, it generates this message. The key is that, at least at one point, you had fully functioning sound on your computer.
One of the more common causes is the drivers for the sound card. The drivers are what run the sound card. It would be like running a computer with no operating system. There is hardware, but nothing to make it useful. It could be that drivers are outdated or inadvertently removed. A less common cause is the Microsoft Windows services are turned off. Rarely, but still possible, is the disabling of sound inside the computer's basic input/output system (BIOS).
Fixing the drivers for your sound card is not generally too difficult. The device manager inside Microsoft Windows control panel generally will indicate whether your drivers are functionally correctly and can even search for an update. You can update most drivers easily online. Right-clicking on "My Computer" can take you to "Manage," which will allow you to perform maintenance on the services and applications on your computer. BIOS problems are fixed by accessing the BIOS panel of your computer, which varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
It is important to note that while none of these possible solutions to problems are difficult, none are without risk. If you feel unsure of the true cause of the problem or if you are uncomfortable with maintenance of the drivers, it is best to seek professional assistance. BIOS alterations and Microsoft Service management should only be attempted if you are familiar with and at ease with these higher-level repairs. When in doubt, please seek qualified personnel to help you resolve this problem.

you may want to try and reinstall the driver from the manufacturers website. I had to do that with a brand new notebook as the speakers didn't work when first turned on. I'll see if I can locate a link and post again if I find it.

The sound power comes through a ribbon cable to the
power button,along with the power supply switch wiring. This "power ribbon cable"( part # 431437-001) has frayed where it connects to the motherboard.
The new cable will cost you about $5 with free shipping on ebay and takes about 10 minutes to replace.
You can find step by step instruction on the repair by searching "dv6000 power ribbon removal".

Turn on your cell phone. Enable Bluetooth by accessing your phone's general or network settings. Your phone will search for Bluetooth signals in the area--they are usually denoted by a small icon displayed on the screen. If you don't know how to turn on Bluetooth or aren't sure whether your phone supports Bluetooth technology, refer to your phone's user guide.
Turn on your Bluetooth headphones while near your cell phone. Turning on a Bluetooth-enabled device will usually put it in pairing mode, meaning it is actively searching for a device to connect to. Since your phone also is actively searching for a Bluetooth device, it should find it right away and prompt you to connect to it. It may ask for a password--refer to your headset's user manual for the default password and how to change it.
Test your connection. Once your headset is paired, the phone will usually start sending calls and audio to it without any additional configuration. Some phones may prompt you and ask which device to use. Try making calls and/or playing music. If you hear music from only one ear, your phone may not support stereo Bluetooth. If you don't hear anything, re-pair the headphones. Power off your phone and headphones, then turn them back on and repeat steps 1 and 2.
