The orange volume mute button won't go off when i touch it on my hp pavillion dv7 1245dx


I have had similar problems with a hp notebook in the past, although it was the wireless button, not the mute button.

I think you need to remove and then install the sound card driver.
You can download the sound card from here:
http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp41001-41500/sp41479.exe

download it, save it to the desktop.
open control panel, then device manager, then expand sound, video and game controllers. right click on the IDT device and select uninstall, and tick remove driver when prompted. Once the uninstall is complete, restart the computer and then run the above file you have downloaded by right clicking on it and selecting "Run as Administrator".
When finished, reboot, and hopefully your problem is solved.

Hope this info helps.

My sound card not work properly


see if the little sound icon on the bottom right is on mute or if it says device not found or a variation of that.

if its mute it pretty straight forward just un-mute it by clicking it.

if it says device not found or a variation...u might have had the driver updated using windows update if its automated...or worst case is the sound card burnt out...

if u can't get it to work u can just get a cheap usb sound card...i got one for my friend for like $10...u can get it on ebay or almost any electronics store really..

hope that helped :)

No audio How to un mute


Hello

I'm using the same laptop right now and have been for 3 years and I didn't know there was a key combo. Can you go into Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices? If you can then you can unmute there.

Laptop LED Locked Mute


go to compaq.com and reinstall the hot-key software for your laptop. seems to be a bad driver, could also be bad hardware though, if it is bad hardware you may be looking for someone to take it apart to fix it. more than likely though it is a driver which can be fixed with just installing new software.

Sound


The first thing I would do is check to see if any of your speaker settings are muted. You can check this by either double-clicking on the speaker icon by the clock, or by going into the control panel and opening up "Sounds and Audio Devices". Then, click on advanced. Un-Mute any muted devices.
