Question about Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Volume icon For some reason a volume icon appears randomly in the middle of the screen. It always shows volume 0. Sometimes it will go away by pushing the menu button; but always reappears. The menu items also flicker and will not stay on the desired control item. This does not alway happen (3 out of 4 times when trying to access the menu to get rid of the volume icon) How can I get the volume to stay off?

SOURCE: I have an Acer H243H widescreen monitor; it has

When this occurs with mine, I power down the PC through windows and the monitor using the lower right power button, let bot sit for 10 - 20 seconds, then power on the PC and switch on the monitor a second or two later and the icon disappears.

Before I did this I found it would eventually disappear.

Acer support claim the H243H is a touchscreen unit, that's what the icon is all about, buy you must have Vista to use it, not XP.

Volume icon appears in the middle of my iPad 3 screen and won't stay off.

Do you have a case on the iPad? Sometimes an ill-fitting case can trigger the buttons by itself. If there is any lint or dirt between the case and the iPad, it can cause the same issue. If you have headphones with a volume controller on the cable - check that that is not being pressed by accident. You can also check to see if there is any lint caught inside the headphone hole. Sometimes that can cause a little electrical short and trigger funny behavior on the iPad. If none of those solve your problem, take it to the apple store, it could just be a faulty switch.

You might try this...you can set your side button on upper left corner edge of ipad to either mute volume or lock screen (stop it from rotating). Check how yours is set...Go into settings>general>Use side switch to:
see if it is set on mute. If it is switch it to Lock Rotation. Now that side switch will lock or unlock screen rotation.
See if that might stop your volume icon from popping up. Good luck!

Poltergeist in volume circuit is the diagnosis. Try a hard reset of the receiver to see if that does the trick with the electronics.

The volume bar keeps appearing on the middle screen on my laptop hp dv7

My suggestion is to set the 'Start Menu' and 'Notification area' to default settings.

1) Right-click the Start icon and select Properties.
Click Taskbar tab > click 'Customize...' in Motification area' section.
Uncheck 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar' (it looks like you have this on)
Click 'Restore default icon behaviors'
test to see if taht fixes the issue.

If all is OK, Re-check the 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar' if you like and test again.

I hope this helps.

How do you turn on the volume? Thank You.

1. Press the Fn key and while holding it down, press the F8 key momentarily to toggle muting of the speaker. An icon of the speaker appears at the bottom middle of the screen showing muting on or off.
2. After making sure the muting is off (no slash symbol on the speaker icon), press and hold Fn again.
3. With Fn pressed, press the key with the upward triangle and speaker symbol to increase volume which is shown at the bottom middle of the screen by the green lettering & vertical bars Volume ''''''''''''
4. With Fn pressed, press the key with the downward triangle and speaker symbol to decrease volume which is shown at the bottom middle of the screen by the green lettering & vertical bars Volume '''

Desktop E-Machine ET1161-07. Problem I have grey rectangle in the middle of the screen . It has a volume Icon with a range of volume from 0 to 100. It is showing at 100 (or full volume). I want that...

hold down alt+f4 and select the icon for the program that is giving the volume icon, make a note of the name of the offending program, then press alt+f4 to close the program. Simply go to add/remove programs and remove the program if you want to, or look in its options to disable the volume display.
