Go to the hp website on the dv4000 computer. Enter dv4000 and then the sub model number on the label from the bottom of the laptop. Then allow the installation of the driver scanner from HP to download/install (press OK to continue to install and let it scan the unit for needed driver updates), then go to the Audio section of the then listed drivers. after entering the operating system installed (see Start>Control Panel>System>General tab for installed OS info), and install that latest Audio driver package update. I would also personally install all the other required driver(s) & the latest BIOS update listed there also myself. IMPORTANT: When installing the latest released (or highest #'d) BIOS update (the BIOS simply allows all the hardware to work together w/ the OS), make sure the computer is plugged in, and do not interrupt the install process or restart/shut down the unit until the program does it for you. (If you have never "flashed a BIOS" before...Have a techie friend do it for you instead, after downloading the proper file/& flash utility...Real patience pays here, or you can flat turn a motherboard into a useless doorstop). It can always be reflashed by the manufacturer (or others), though even if a BIOS Flash is messed up.

Free Belarc Advisor ( if installed and run will inventory all your hardware & software if you have any questions about whether a specific driver listed matches your specific hardware concerning that dv4000.

There were a few HP dv series laptop motherboards that had a problem holding both Video & Audio drivers (install 1 and the other would blow out & get corrupted), install the other and just the opposite...They had a class action settlement that was only 90 days or 6 months long and really screwed many of us over in the process. If there is a choice between the dv4, dv6, & dv7 series I always pick the dv7 series to recommend to & for my customers.

Wireless button, won't come on. Stays the orange color.

This could be caused by one of the following issues:

WLAN is disabled in the BIOS. Check BIOS that WLAN is enabled. Update to the latest BIOS if not already:

Update Wireless drivers to the latest.

Update HP Wireless Assistant, try turning it on/off via Wireless Assistant

If all these do not work, contact HP to replace switch cover which controls the wireless button, power button, mute, volume. Does the mute and volume buttons work?

My computer will not boot up keeps closing down

check how often it shuts down and if it shuts down when you start a particular application then start your computer and go to BIOS and leave it on there ( for example if your comp shuts down every 3 mins in normal mode then leave the comp on for 15 mins in bios to determine if it is a hardware or software issue then check in sfae mode the event log or error reporting if any hardware is causing the issue, update the drivers or try with new user or reinstall OS as last option.

About 10 seconds after i turn on my aspire 3690 the fan shuts down. the laptop will run for several minutes and then it shuts down also probibly from overheating. The fan starts each time i start but shuts...

First thing I'd check is for a BIOS update for your computer under the Acer support pages ( In some cases, thermal control updates are included in newer version of the BIOS, if it is a manufacturing problem.
Goto and download Hardware Monitor, start the computer and immediately run the hardware monitor app to check how high the temperature on the CPU gets before it shuts down.
Continuing use under this condition may damage your Windows installation because of the sudden shutdown.
