HP dv5 1225ca stuck on mute

HP dv5 1225ca

my computer is stuck on mute. the touch bar on the top of the keyboard is stuck on the orange muted speaker icon. I seem to be missing a driver. My husband downloaded a new one (IDT something or other codec?) and it didnt fix it (even after multiple shutdowns and reboots). I read that i should delete the drivers and upon restart it would ask me to install something... it didnt ask so now i have no drivers and am stuck on mute. help!

Go to the HP Support site. Click on "Drivers and Downloads" tab. Enter the p/n (product number) from the white label on the bottom of your laptop in the box where they ask and go. The next page will offer you a chance to choose the Operating System you're using. Enter the correct one and you'll be taken to the Drivers site for your laptop. Look down the list for HP Quickplay and HP Quick Launch Buttons drivers. You must install the QUICKPLAY driver first. Also, look for the Sound category and download and install that driver as well.

That should get you going.

If you have a hardware mute button on the keyboard, try pressing that. They usually look like a speaker with either an x beside it or a speaker that has a circle with a slash beside it. It may even be colored red.
The following answer assumes you're using XP, Vista, or Win 7.

If there is no mute button, click the speaker icon on the toolbar and see if the 'mute' box is checked. If it isn't, also use your mouse or touchpad to work the slider on the screen to try and turn up the volume.

Lastly, some Toshiba laptops have a separate hardware volume control on the front, like you'd find on portable radios.

ProBook 6450b mute button on keyboard is always orange


Is the volume muted or not when the light is orange? If it is muted then use the icon on task bar and increase the volume, to see if color changes. If it is not muted and a change of volume does not affect the color of the light, maybe that is the normal color for it. Did you read the manual and find that orange means trouble. On my computer, the light for my WifI is always orange.
The speakers may be muted by an Fn +Fx key sequence, or some additional buttons on the computer.

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.

I have an HP Pavilion dv7. Suddenly I have no volume. The mute light on the keyboard is orange and won't change to blue when I tap it. The mute volume icon at the bottom of the screen indicates that it...


Candy,

First thing is first, Thank You for visiting our site!

The problem you having is a HARDWARE issue with that push button interface in that HP.

what you can TRY

1. Take the batteries out of it
2. Unplug it totally from power
3. Pu the battery back in then power it on
4. Then push that button

If those steps do not work the laptop will need a new interface touch board. What is happening is its not recognizing your trying to turn the mute off.

The mute is off in the operating system DOES not construe for a fact that the issue is resolved if the button is still orange.

You will need a new touch board if the reset does not work.

You might want to contact support.hp.com to have them send out a tech or have it repaired by a authorized HP repair center in your area.

I hope you found this information Helpful!

Regards,

My speaker is muted - no sound on my HP Pavilion zv5


This sounds as though there may be a problem with the driver for the sound card within the computer.

If you enter the device manager (found in control panel) you can update the drivers for this device from within there :o)
