    My problem is very similar, almost everytime (not always - does not happen in Windows Media Player) when I touch the volume bar, it pops up that large volume bar window, which pulsates and freezes the underlying application. Depending on the length of my touch on the volume pad, it will stay frozen proportionally as long. When you wait a while (sometimes a very long time like 2 minutes), it finally goes away and unfreezes the application. Very annoying and very frustrating! Is there a way to disable the popup window? This might be causing it. btw, I'm on Vista..

    oh and I am running on an HP Pavilion dv6000 so it's definitely OS related.

It is probably a GPU overheat issue where the BGA chip has desoldered itself.
Reballing the GPU should fix it.

As odd as this may sound, it sounds like a problem in your keyboard. Make sure the volume button(s) or mute button is not partially depressed and stuck, and hasn't had anything spilled in/on it. If it's not that, you've probably got bigger issues that are going to take some qualified repair work, like parts swaps.

The volume slider on your laptop is failing or having problems, I have had this issue my self it is usually caused by dirt and grime, so you may want to give it a good cleaning or residual heat from the processor. I'm posting the link to an hp support thread below, with several other fixes not mentioned here. I hope I could Help.

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.

Light-up volume bars on the hp pc notebook dv7 1132nr


Hi Folks....
If you are talking about the Quick Launch buttons of the Notebooks from where we usually increase, decrease or mute the Volume, the lights will be still and will not increase or decrease with the increase or decrease in Volume.
However, you do have a utility which should be preinstalled in Notebooks called HP Quick Touch which shows the bars on the Display when the volume is Increased or Decreased  using the Quick Launch buttons. This application is not compatible with Windows Vista 64 bit edition.
The HP Quick Touch application is available for download from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38358.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install the application.
Hope this helps....
