About a year ago I noticed that the LED on my mute button will not light up/turn on when I first power on, even though the rest of the media controls light up. The result is that I lost the ability to...

learn to use the control panel. (more later)
the special keys like this can fail for 3 reasons (get it serviced)?
  1. bad hp keyboard driver, (or wrong one, or missing)
  2. virus infecttions (or worse root kit attacks)
  3. bad key.
click start.
click control panel
see sound?
now click tab sounds
in the top roller button , pick no sounds (bingo all sounds gone)
error sounds and all
or pick any sound seen there, and make it go dead, or change it to any thing, (endless, choices) even sound of silence. is possible
like this , nosound.wav.
or to pindrop.wav

My computer sound is broken


Sound errors can occur for a variety of reasons such as outdated drivers or checked mute buttons. However, if you know how to use the Sound Troubleshooter tool on your Windows computer, you can effectively deal with sound issues on your device.

Go to the "Start" menu and click "Help and Support."

Click "Fixing a problem." Click "Games, sound, and video problems."

Navigate to "Fix a problem." Click "Fix a problem" to cause the Sound Troubleshooter tool to appear.

Choose the button that best describes the audio issue on your laptop or desktop. Hit "Enter." Windows identifies possible sound issue remedies and provides you with directions to repair your audio issue.

We have purchased a new acer laptop and are trying to use Skype. The other person cannot hear us, I think it is the microphone but cannot workout why it won't work

First check the volume mixer by the clock on your computer and make sure it is turned on. Also check the volume setup in Skype.

Your laptop may have a mute button somewhere close to (but not on) the keyboard. Make sure that is is not muted.

I own an HP laptop and have lost the sound speakers on my unit. When plugged into my desk speakers, I do get excellent sound. Any recommendations? thank you

Define lost the sound speakers? do they just not work? Most laptops have a button to mute the sound on the laptop somewhere. See if you can find it and see if it makes a difference.

Mute Button (touchpad)

This could be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the audio drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find he sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then go to HP's support site and check for any updated sound drivers or patches. If it's a glitch this will fix it. Keep in mind that it could also be a hardware problem with the mute switch, so if the driver procedure doesn't work, you might consider having it serviced.

Hello theres is no

I don't think there's a problem with the driver, try checking the sound folder in "control panel" you might find the solution there.
