    No I have not. I do not know how to do that! I do not have external speakers by the way

    What version of Windows are you running? In Vista, type in 'Device Manager' in the search window. It pops up when you press the start button. A window should pop up with a long list of the devices linked to your laptop. Look for the one that says 'Sound, video and Game controllers'. Expand that option and the name of your speakers should be below that. Right mouse click on the name of your speakers and the first option should be 'update driver software'. Click on that of course, while you're online, so that the latest drivers can be downloaded if necessary.

    Have you tried updating the drivers for your speakers?

I have an HP Pavilion dv7. Suddenly I have no volume. The mute light on the keyboard is orange and won't change to blue when I tap it. The mute volume icon at the bottom of the screen indicates that it...


First thing is first, Thank You for visiting our site!

The problem you having is a HARDWARE issue with that push button interface in that HP.

what you can TRY

1. Take the batteries out of it
2. Unplug it totally from power
3. Pu the battery back in then power it on
4. Then push that button

If those steps do not work the laptop will need a new interface touch board. What is happening is its not recognizing your trying to turn the mute off.

The mute is off in the operating system DOES not construe for a fact that the issue is resolved if the button is still orange.

You will need a new touch board if the reset does not work.

You might want to contact to have them send out a tech or have it repaired by a authorized HP repair center in your area.

I hope you found this information Helpful!

I have HP laptop and i suddenly lost sound, i cant hear anything. i want the solution

Click start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure it is not muted and volume is on high.
Click audio tab and under Default device is it set to SoundMAX HD Audio? if this device is not available try another device and click Apply and test. (you may need to close windows media player or whatever is playing the sound and reopen after changing default device)

No sound when videos are playing.

Go to your sound and audio in your control panel.
Check to make sure your sound is not on "Mute" and also make sure the volume is turned up.
if it's not on mute or the volume is not turned downand you still have no sound go into the "Advanced" settings and make sure all levels are on the highest settings.

Hp laptop, dv6000 series..volume button gone pink!

Usually when the volume button is pink(orangey) it means that the volume has been muted. Make sure both on the quick play bar right of the power button and in the task bar, that the volume has not been set to mute. Also check the audio drivers and make sure the drivers haven't been corrupt and reinstall or re-download new updated drivers in needed.

Hp dv71245dx cannot remove from muted state.

Go to Control panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume. Check that Device Volume is at least halfway across the slider and that Mute is unchecked. Go to Advanced and make sure that nothing is mute. Go to Speaker Volume and set the sliders at least halfway across the slider. Go to Advanced, and in Speakers setup choose Laptop Stereo Speakers (if that's what you have). Go to Performance and choose Restore Defaults. Click Apply > OK

plz do inform if this has sorted out the problem
all the best

check if the laptop has an external volume control with a on/ff click or maybe the volume is at minimum. IT could be also that is muted. make sure the MUE is OFF the volume is at max and then reboot the laptop.

No system sound on my HP Pavilion dv1000

Have you checked device manager? You may try reinstalling the driver through device manager? Check the audio properties in sound. you May be try running a virus/spyware scan. When something suddenly goes out its either dead, corrupt driver or virus/spyware/highjacker etc. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
