HP probook 4420s stuck on mute


Look on you system at the keyboard and you will find a key that toggles the mute if he pressed it. It will toggle between on and off. Normally the mute key or button will look like a megaphone and if it is muted it will have an x over it. Press it to unmute it. Sometimes if it is a key, you might have to press the FN, CTRL or ALT key while you press and hold the key that toggles the mute.

Another way to remove the mute is to Double Click on the megaphone if you see it at the bottom right near the time. This will bring up the volume control and you just remove the check mark from any that is muted.

Also you can click Start/Control Panel look for volume controls that might be muted and remove the check mark on mute.

Also click Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Volume Control and remove the check mark on muted items.

How to unmute the machine - no sound at all


Usually the sound on the OS is directly tied into the physical sound controls on the laptop.
Most new laptops now-a-days have keys called FUNCTION keys which are usually represented by light blue icons on other keys.

Look for the FUNCTION keys associated with the sound (think speakers, +/- etc)
You should find some keys somewhere (usually number keys) that have these blue icons,
you should also find 1 or 2 FN keys (usually near the left CTRL/ALT keys)

Hold down the FN key and press the MUTE key or the + key several times.

Still nothing? Try changing the volume in windows (double click the speaker icon in the system tray, no speaker icon? is it hidden? expand the system tray by press the little area inside of it.)

STILL nothing? Make sure your sound device is working properly.
Easiest way to check this is (VISTA/7) click START and type in Device Manager, (XP right-click MY COMPUTER, then PROPERTIES, then the HARDWARE tab then DEVICE MANAGER button)

Sound controllers has it's own section, if your sound card has an icon next to it try reinstalling the device drivers and rebooting.

STTTIIILLLL nothing? Speakers may be broke or even a BIOS setting (complicated)

Dont know how to control the volume, i cannot find my manual


Most of the time their are multiple ways to do this.

1. On the speaker in the lower right hand corner left click and a volume bar appears. Slide it up and down. It should be adjust to 75% IMO.

2. On your keys there should be symbols that look like speakers that should match the color of you "fn" key. Press and hold the fn key and then press the corresponding speaker key to increase or decrease the volume.

3. There may be a rotary volume control on the front of the laptop case. It's as simple as turning it to increase or decrease it.

On the volume bar in windows verify that the muted in unchecked.

Acertravelmate4000 got it used,don,t know how to turn off mute,turn on or up volume


The volume may be muted. In Windows, look at the volume
control (speaker) icon on the taskbar. If it is crossed-out, click on
the icon and deselect the Mute option.
The speakers may be turned off. Press Fn-F8 to turn the speakers
on (this hot key also turns the speakers off).
The volume level may be too low. In Windows, look at the volume
control icon on the taskbar.
Fn-? Volume up Increases the sound volume. Fn-? Volume down Decreases the sound volume.

If this helps u let me know

To set on the speakers


if you have a little speaker icon on the bottom action bar, click on it and see if it's set on mute. un-check it and all should be right! if you don,t have the icon, then click on 'start' click on 'control panel' click on 'sounds and audio devices', somewhere there you should find an option to put the volume control option on your bottom bar. good luck from there! if that doesn,t work, then your audio may be fried! let's hope not!!

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TURN THE VOLUME UP ON MY TOSHiBA LAPTOP.


On your keyboard is a special key with the letters Fn on it. It has a particular color. Also on your keyboard usually on the Page up and Page down keys should be speaker icons in the same color as the Fn keytop. Also nearby the Page Up Page Down key and usualy the end key is a speaker icon with a line through it.

You press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the Page up Page down or the actual keys that have the speakers on them. To mute or unmute you press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the key that has the speaker with the line through it.

That should give you keyboard control over your speakers.

Additionally, if you double click the speaker icon next to the time display you will bring up the controls for all volumes on your laptop. Check to see that wave is not muted and master is nearly all the way up, the wave scale should be one tick short of the top. For CD Audio, you will want to do the same with that volume slider.

Any other questions just use the comment box to ask.
