How do i increase the screen brightness HP elitebook 8530p


Sounds like your keybinding/hotkey combo is not doing its job. (or your bulb in the display is going out)

You can open up Control Panel and adjust brightness from there.

Step 1 Click "Start ' Control Panel ' Hardware and Sound ' Power Options" to open the Power Options window.
Step 2 Click and drag the bottom "Screen Brightness" slider to the right to increase screen brightness and to the left to decrease it. Making this adjustment changes the brightness level only for the current power source; if you change power sources, the screen brightness may change again.
Step 3 Click "Change Plan Settings" on whichever power plan is currently selected.
Step 4 Click and drag the "Adjust Plan Brightness" slider to the right to increase brightness for each of the power sources, such as "On Battery" or "Plugged In." If you want high-precision numeric control, you need to access the advanced settings.
Step 5 Click "Change Advanced Power Settings."
Step 6 Click "+" next to "Display" and then "Display Brightness" to expand these options.
Step 7 Click "On Battery" and enter a percentage in the field provided. Choosing "100" will set the screen to maximum brightness; any other brightness will be a percentage of the maximum brightness. To increase the brightness, make sure the number you enter is higher than the current value.
Step 8 Click "Plugged In" and set its brightness percentage.
Step 9 Click "Apply" and then "OK" to close the Advanced Settings window.
Step 10 Click "Save Changes" to save any changes you made on the Edit Plan Settings page. If you only make changes in the Advanced Settings page, the Save Changes button will be grayed out. If that's the case, just click "Cancel."


Hope this helps!

I don't hear any sounds from my computer. I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo laptop with Windows Vista.


Go to start > control panel,
Click on the Sound and Audio device icon. See if it is active and not grayed out. If it is grayed out, it means that your audio drivers are not installed.
If it is grayed out, go to the main window of the control panel > Device Manager > Sound and Audio
There check if there is an red X or yellow exclamation mark on the Audio device.
Right click on the Audio device and on the drop down window, click un-install. then restart the laptop. Check for sound again.
Also put a headset on the line out/spk out port and see if you get sound there. Let me know.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Getting sound both in headphones and speaker simultaneously


Hello Aditya,
This is a known issue on this particular notebook. This notebook hardware works very well with Vista. And when coming to widnows XP you will face driver compatability issues.
I will provide youa sound driver which has worked fine on all C700 notebook model. Before installing this driver uninstall current driver from the notebook.
Audio driver:
http://cid-3a2fd42defd10b67.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Public/Audio%20driver.zip


After downloading the file please extract the files to a folder on the desktop.
Follow the below steps to install the driver correctly:

1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter. 2. Right click on "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" and click Update driver. 3. Select not at this time, click on next and Select "Install from a list or specific location".  4. Click Next. Then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install"  5. Click Next and then select "Sound, video and game controller" from the list. 6. Click Next and then click Have Disk. 7. Click Browse, Choose the location where you have saved the extracted folder. 8. Open the folder and choose the .inf file listed. 9. Ignore any errors you receive and proceed with the installation.
After uninstalling the current audio driver you will get this "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" entry in device manager.
I hope this owrks for you.
