Question about PC Laptops
I've been given a hp compaq nx9010 notebook computer which works perfectly except the audio mute button and LED don't work at all. The up/down buttons work fine. What could be wrong? The switch feels OK and has a good 'click'. My background is in electronics so I should be competent to fix this if it's a hardware problem. If you have any thoughts I would be very grateful! Even better could someone email me a service manual please? firstname.lastname@example.org
I copied and pasted the following from http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1222201248333+28353475&threadId=794853 I hope it helps!
Clinton Tam Jan 21, 2005 13:59:29 GMT 10 pts As for the problem with Wifi LED and mute LED issues, you need to do the following:
1. Uninstall the Notebook Utilities from Add/Remove Programs.
2. Uninstall the One Touch software.
4. Reinstall One Touch Software.
6. Apparently the One Touch doesn't enable all the buttons on the ze53XX unless the Notebook Utilities software is loaded last. If the utilities are loaded first, One Touch breaks it.
Download Notebook Utilites from here and install.

I called HP. Here is what worked for me. Restart computer inbios mode. Press F10 key as it is booting up, Once in bios, select load set up defaults. Once you have done that, reinstall the drivers that apply to your sound card. Fic took no more than 5 minutes.

Hope this helps. If you can control muting on and off at Control Panel, System, Device Manager, Audio properties then you only need the utility software to activate the function keys. Please check at manufacturer's website for the keboard or similar function key utilities.
