Question about HP Pavilion dv7-1130us laptop

Open Question

Media controls on HP dv7 malfunction.

The touch controls on my dv7-1262us work, but also bring up an Excel document everytime I use them. The volume button brings up numerous Excel docs. I've experienced 51 at one time, due to that button. I was wondering if there is any "quick fixes" that don't involve rebooting the entire operating system (which is what an IT reccomended). The switches worked completely fine until about two days ago.
Any suggestions would be appreciated

SOURCE: 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....

How to turn on the speakers on an HP Pavillion dv7 laptop


Go to your control panel and click the "find and fix problems2 link under SYSTEM and SECURITY then select the trouble shoot audio playback. Click next wait for it to search then select speakers and click next this should fix your issue.
Alternatively the volume setting for one or more sound devices might be disabled or set too low. There are separate sound controls for the hardware devices (speakers / head sets) and the individual applications (Windows sound / QuickPlay / Windows Media Player). For example, if the speaker is turned on, but the application is muted, you will not hear any sound. open the sound volume mixer and check the different settings

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.

Dv7-1023cl problems with quick touch buttons


You don't need to activate the drivers. if you reinstalled them then they are there and should be working.

There should be alternate methods to using the quick touch keys, such as using the conventional methods.

For example to change your volume, just click on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume. Or click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound and adjust the volume. Also click Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment and see if there is a volume control there. Also normally you can adjust the volume by keystrokes. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key near the bottom left portion of the keyboard and press the volume keys (there should be 3 volume keys, volume up, volume down and volume mute).

As for the Wireless there is a switch on the side or in the front of the laptop that controls the wireless. Also there are keystrokes that can toggle it off or on once the wireless switch is on. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the icon of a wireless signal )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with a wireless signal )))).

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1232nr, the mute button and the wireless button on the top touch pad has quit working along with the volume slider. Any suggestions?


My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.

check whether the drivers are installed properly and try by re installing the driver after removing the existing sound rivers
This can be done by using the device manager
In the device manager you can find whether driver is installed if it is installed and not working means right click it and give uninstall ,automatically it will search for drivers and ask the required driver or it install if backup is present already

How do I stop Excel from opening up when I turn the volume down?


I don't have your model but the symptoms point to the "hotkeys" or "quick launch" buttons have changed from their original settings. There could be a few solutions. First, check this link for help from HP:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=3744188&prodTypeId=321957&objectID=c01136921


If this is something that has started receintly, try a system restore back to a time when it was working correctly.

There is also the HP Backup & Recovery utility to try:

Possibly, if you have your original MS Excel disks, try uninstalling, rebooting, test the buttons, and if it's working properly, reinstall Excel
