Volume Buttons is not adjusting volume on new keyboard

Q: Volume Buttons is not adjusting volume on new keyboard

Hello sevenforums,
I just received a new keyboard today: Thermaltake Challenger Ultimate. I went from a Logitech G15.

First thing I did was connect the keyboard and install the software that came along on the CD, it probably also installed the correct drivers. First after this did I uninstall the software and drivers from the old Logitech G15. But before that, and now after, the volume buttons on my new keyboard is still not adjusting the volume when I press them.

A speaker-icon like this shows up when I press the volume buttons, so its not that the keys are not working: (ignore the text behind it, its me writing an assignment)



Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be wrong?

Hi,
Windows XP Home
RealPlayer 10.5

Ok, I used to have RealPlayer and all it's junk till I wised up
and removed it from my system over a year ago.

However, I recently installed the basic RealPlayer (that is...only allowing
the features that I needed for video/audio) in order to watch NASA TV
e.g. DEEP IMPACT and today's DISCOVERY launch.

My question is regarding why, when I mute or adjust the volume on
the RealPlayer, that it also does the same to the computer's Volume
Control (Speaker Icon in System Tray...Wave setting).

I had been viewing on the RealPlayer, muted the sound and then later
was wondering why I was not able to hear any of my videos, music, etc.
The thought occurred to me to check the Speaker Icon and, sure enough,
there was a check at Wave>>Mute.

Is there a setting I can check/uncheck that will allow RealPlayer and
Computer volume to be independent of one another?

Thank you,

Try removing your KB via Devices and Printers, reboot your machine and see if by Win7 reinstallation of your KB dosen't help your issue. If not, see if there are more updated drivers for your KB.

I have an issue with my laptop. About once a day, or every other day, the touch button on the keyboard controlling the volume seems to get activated, and my volume is thrown all of the way up to maximum. It gets stuck like that for a few hours. When that happens, all of the other buttons on the keyboard get frozen as well. Is there anyway to disable that strip of buttons on the top of the keyboard?

I just replaced my old system with a new one, and used the sound system I had with the old one.

AMD 3500
1 gig Ram
Windows XP Media Center Edition
Boston Acoustics Surround Sound System
On board audio used- no sound card

I had a few problems getting sound to work, realized that had to use the digital out to get the system I have to work. After using an adapter from the digital out it worked fine. I proceeded to dump the Norton that was installed and download Mcaffee from AOL. I also downloaded Spybot and Adaware and ran scans,, deleted a few nasties that came up and ran scan with Mcaffee. Everything fine with the exception that the volume buttons on the keyboard no longer work. Ive been into all the Keyboard setup and volume controls and have yet to find anything to make the keyboard controls work again. It shows on the screen when u push the button but doesn't control vol. I can adjust externally or on the application. I have downloaded the latest drivers from HP but that didn't help either. All other controls work. Any ideas anyone?

When I got it back everything was in working order with Windows 10 except the top row of keys that control volume, brightness and the ability to pause, rewind and skip songs now solely does the standard system commands of f1-f10 *caret browsing on/of, find in page, etc* Im not sure if they worked the first time I tried to upgrade because I couldn't even log on to my computer after I upgraded the first time so I reformatted.

Intel (R) Core(TM) i7-5500 CPU @ 2.40Ghz(RAM) 8.00 GB64 bit I have a problem with audio on my laptop. It keeps automatically adjusting itself based on the volume level. In YouTube or iTunes, the same thing happens: If I turn the volume DOWN, the pc will adjust the volume to sound as if it never was adjusted. Same with the other way around: Turn it UP and it will adjust the volume DOWN. The only reliable way to adjust volume is by manually going into the HP Speaker control to keep the volume at a certain 'maximum'. It has nothing to do with Beats Audio, I tested it by turning Beats on and off. Also, Beats has no options for an "automatic volume adjustment" feature. My audio device is: "Speaker/HP Realtek High Definition Audio". In this device's Properties, there is no option tab for "Automatic Loudening". The only tabs are: 'General', 'Levels' and 'Advanced'. None of these have the option of disabling 'Automatic Volume Loudening Adjustment.'Also, I am using headphones plugged into the jack...but I'm not sure if that makes any difference?

Hello @C-O-Z-M-O-S, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I read your post about the volume automatically adjusting, and wanted to assist you! You can try going into the Volume Mixer, and adjusting the System Sounds, to see if that works.  There is a Communications tab, with additional options.  Adjusting that option may resolve the issue for you.  Here is a link to help you with this: How to Disable Auto System Sounds Leveling in Windows 7 Please let me know if this information was helpful by clicking the "thumbs up" below.Have a great weekend!

Dear Friends., I have an HP Pavilion notebook model dv7-3085dx. I'm not sure how to adjust the audio volume from or on the keyboard? Or maybe they aren't working? The attachment is a "Sample" only it is not the exact layout I have. I assume these are finger touched controls? On another HP laptop you would hold down the fn and alt buttons and on the other side of the keyboard there are clearly marked keys with pg up and pg down with speaker icons on the keys as well.Perhaps for some strange reason the finger touch controls aren't working or disabled somehow. These are the illuminated speaker - and speaker + with bars in between them and next to that are what appears to be (rewind?) |<< > >>| (fast forward?) and then a small illuminated square.What am I missing please.Thank You in advance for your care, cooperation and attention to this matter.Respectfully, Mr. Ralf

A:Adjusting Audio Volume

Hi: In the illustration you posted, that item labeled as #4 is the volume up/down scroll zone. Basically you slide your finger to the left to decrease the volume and to the right to increase the volume. If that is not functioning, perhaps you need to install the quick launch software below... This package contains the software that enables the HP Quick Launch Buttons, which are special function keys on HP Notebooks. This software works with supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp49001-49500/sp49104.exe

Whenever I download mp3 files and play them back, I find a great deal of variation in volume level. Some play back much softer or lower than I would like and occasionally one will play back too loud. I'm trying to find a good program to use that will allow me to adjust mp3 volume levels before starting the burn process so that after I burn CD's and then play them back I won't have to keep adjusting the volume. In other words I wan't to be able to burn 20 or so tracks so that they will all play back at essentially the same level of volume. ( I guess that these programs would also make it possible to eliminate a certain amount of hiss, especially in cases where the volume level needs boosting.)

I've been told that there are programs that will let me make such adjustments. I would appreciate recommendations as to which of these work the best and have the clearest instructions. Basically, how do these programs work? A simple 3- or 4-step explanantion, if possible, would help me a lot.

Thank you,

Hi, my computer has been acting funny. Whenever I try and adjust the volume, the computer goes to a mind of its own. It'll lower the volume all the way to 0, or 100 depending if I tried to lower or up the volume. It does this even though I'm not touching the volume button. I'm on windows 10, and I tried reinstalling my sound card drivers, realtek, and this still happens. If I try to adjust it while it's adjusting itself all the way up, or down, the computer doesn't listen. After a restart it may work for a short while, but it always happens again later.

Hi, I had to restore my computer to factory settings a few weeks back due to some trojan/virus. Now that its clean I've noticed the computer makes a sort of beep but its from inside the computer, not the speakers. This mainly happens when I change the volume through the speaker icon and also when I open up a certain video game. Also the soundbar (green volume thing) wont show up when I adjust the volume with the keyboard. Is there anything I could do to fix this?

Thanks for the help.

A:Internal Beep when adjusting volume

I think you can disable this in control panel in sounds/audio devices.
Go under the sound tab to change the sounds. Unless you mean a
beep that is like from the sound of the computer.

AS for the green volume bar, if the volume is still being adjusted, it's
probably just delay/lag, a restart of the computer or trying again later should
enable it to work just fine.

To keep things simple I have recetly built my own HTPC and am using a HDA Digital Mystique 7.1 Gold soundcard for audio. When I use the windows remote to adjust the volume it only changes the volume of the master volume level and leaves the wave volume level unchanged. I know that my best bet is to simply change the volume on my AV Receiver and leave the Wave and Master volume at mid - max but when my girlfriend uses the HTPC she always uses the remotes volume control.

Having said that I would simply like the option of being able to change the volume of my HTPC via the MS remote instad of just the amp.

If more information is needed or if you would like a better explanation of what I am trying to acheive then please feel free to ask.

I'm not sure if this happened with 5.55, but with 5.56, when I hit the volume up or down on my keyboard to turn the sound down for everything, it turns down winamp's volume bar too. Sometimes I can move winamp's volume bar up and down and it won't even be working. What causes this? It's pretty annoying for the music to turn down twice as fast or winamp's volume bar to not even work at all.EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

First, a little bit about my laptop. Its a Toshiba P205D with Window's Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2, 32 bit.

And now, the problem: In the past month, I've noticed that when I try to adjust my volume (at least by the volume wheel) it makes my Window's Taskbar freeze up and stop working. If I click on it I get the "This program has stopped working, would you like to restart it, close it, or wait for it to respond?" message. If I do any of the three, it doesn't fix the problem. The taskbar closes, reloads, and I still can't adjust my volume. The only way to get it working again, is to go somewhere like youtube and watch a video, that somehow kicks my sound adjustment back into gear, and lets me adjust the volume. (After I do that, its fine.)

I've had this computer for about 4 years now, and this has never happened to me before. If anyone know's what can be causing this, or how to fix it, that'd be great. I'm hoping that reformating isn't the only answer because I did that just a couple months ago, and I'm still installing programs and window's updates to this day, so I'd rather not have to do that again.

Any answers would be great, thanks.

So Windows 7 has a feature that will auto-adjust the volume during video chatting. Seems like a good idea but in reality it just brings down the volume to a point to where I cant even hear the person. I have done some research on this but everything I could find said to go to Sound Settings -> Communications Tab -> and check the box that says "Do Nothing". I did this but it had no effect on Live Messenger. I downloaded Yahoo Messenger and it doesn't have this audio problem.

But it doesnt do anything.. It keeps changing anyways.

Can I use gpedit and set a policy that prevents any program at all from changing the microphone volume?

Nothing seems to work.. I end up dragging the slider to 25% constantly fighting with it to keep the volume from getting too loud or quiet!!

note this only happens while IN a call.

Solved... By reverting to an older version of skype.. No more microphone changes! (skype 6.3)

Is the PC actually fully Windows 7 compatible, since it was upgraded from XP? Do you have a fully Windows 7 compatible driver from Packard Bell and not a non-vendor sound driver, as non vendor drivers many times to do not work correctly.

As a side note, I see you only have 1GB of RAM, that is insufficient for Win 7 Ultimate, as Microsoft says 2GB minimum. Also with an 8400GS, which is an old video card that also makes me wonder about the PC's full Windows 7 compatibility.

Very similar if not identical to this thread: whenever I adjust the volume on this Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop using the analog dial on the front of the machine, Windows Explorer crashes. Also, the Speaker Properties window in the Control Panel will crash if I click the Levels tab. This only started happening since the upgrade to Service Pack 1 of Vista. (This machine runs Vista Home Basic, and just fine before the upgrade).

Probably a driver issue, I know, but Toshiba doesn't seem to have released any audio driver updates. Driver version installed is Realtek High Definition Audio 6.0.1.5322, from 11/8/2006.

A:volume buttons

Hello. There are a couple of things one can do to try to solve an audio problem when one does not know what is causing the problem. The first thing is to reinstall the audio driver:
1. Open the Device Manager2. Expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section.3. Right click on the audio driver and select to uninstall.4. Do not put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software.5. Restart the laptop and Windows will reinstall the driver, but with the settings back to their defaults.
Another thing is to use Windows System Restore if you have a Windows operating system. Find a Restore Point dated from before the cat walked on the laptop. Windows System Restore will fix certain system changes.
A third thing you can do is reset the laptop back to the original factory configuration.
If you need more help, include the full model name of your laptop and which operating system it has. Without knowing those things you can only get generic advice.

Hi, I know this is not exactly the right sort of forum but I thought someone might know why the remote that came with my 5.1 speakers has 2 volume up and volume down buttons. But pressing either 2 of the volume up buttons just does the same thing, increase the volume on the display by one, and same for volume down.

So why does it have 2 sets? Is it some special feature or something to do with surround? Or even just for looks lol? Pic:

A:Remote has 2 Sets of Volume Buttons

As a guess, I'd say that one set is for the front pair of speakers and the other is for the rear speakers. It could also be that one is actually a front-to-rear fader and the other is a left-right balance control.

What brand and model are the speakers?

In Device Manager>>Sound, what do you see highlighted under "Set a playback device..." and what do you see selected when you press "Configure"? The fact that both sets of buttons do the exact same thing makes me think that Windows isn't sure what kind of speaker configuration you have.

Did the speakers come with any software? If so, is it properly installed?

I installed Windows 10 on this older all-in-one IQ504 to replace the original Vista. The volume buttons on the computer and the original keyboard no longer work as they did before the OS upgrade. What to do?

Volume buttons on my media keyboard control the wrong sound device.
I have both Speakers and Headphones plugged in and they show up as 2 different devices in Sound > Playback Devices.
Headphones are plugged into the USB keyboard.
The Speakers are set as the Default Device.
Using the volume nob on my keyboard changes the volume for the Headphones instead of the keyboard.

Kind of pointless to change the volume for the non-default device, since it's not in use right?
I've not seen any way to change this anywhere as far as I can find.
I dont think this is working as intended, is there any way to fix this?

I have an HP Elitebook X3U19AV that was given to me from my work.

Brand new out of the box.

Running Windows 10 Education - version 1607
OS Build 14393.1593

Two somewhat similar problems with one little difference.

When I use the F3 and F4 button to try and control brightness nothing happens. I've tried pushing these buttons while holding down the fn key and without holding down that key.

When I use the f5,6 and 7 button to try and control the volume, I can see the system volume display showing up and being affected, but it doesn't change the volume that is actually coming out of my computer. I have noticed this on several websites with sound. I also downloaded Spotify to see if the volume control buttons would work on that and they do not. I have to find the individual volume control within the website or in Spotify and change the sound for just that app or website.

I have followed the suggestion on this website that asked me to run the System File Checker. No luck.

Volume buttons not working.  Part of suggested remedies say to remove battery, but I can't find battery case.  Solid back on rear of laptop.  Am I missing something?  How do I get to battery without taking off entire back?
