First thing to try is to go to and click on the "Support and Drivers" section. Choose to download drivers and software in Step 1, then in Step 2 area, just type: Pavillion dv6910 and hit enter. Choose your OS and then hit the + beside the audio driver and click the Download. Save that to your desktop and open/run it when it's done. Hopefully this will fix that.

If that fails, then Click on Start, right click on My Computer (Or just computer if it's Vista or Win7, you didn't specify the Operating System you have) and left click on Properties. Click the hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. Delete all of the sound/game controllers there and reboot the system. when it comes back up, ignore the windows about installing the sound/game devices and just run the sound driver software you downloaded earlier to your desktop. When the install completes, reboot again and you should be fine.

Hope this helps! Remember to rate this advice pls. :)

How to enlarge the icons on the toolbar

If you mean enlarging the task bar items please follow the following steps:

1-Access the Taskbar and Start Menu. This particular menu will allow you to customize your taskbar features and resize the icons. Click on the Start menu, or Windows logo, from within your taskbar.

2-Select "Control Panel," then select "Appearance and Personalization." On some Windows 7 computers, this option may also read as "Appearance."

3-Click on "Taskbar and Start Menu." This will open a Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box on your screen.

4-Change the size of the taskbar icons. Place a checkmark next to "Use small icons" within the Taskbar Appearance section to make your taskbar icons appear smaller.

5-Click directly on the checkmark if one is already present to enlarge the size of your taskbar icons.

6-Save your taskbar icon customization settings. Your new taskbar settings will go into effect immediately. Click on the "Apply" button to save your changes, then click "OK" to exit from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties menu.

M2000 battery and very slow

The Power Options icon wont move to the taskbar. Double click on this icon, this opens the Power Options Properties window. Go to Advanced then select and select and tick Always show icon on the taskbar then apply. This should put the icon in the taskbar.

Try freeing some space using disk cleanup. You can also go to Internet Options to delete files stored in history.
