HP quick launch mute button

Q: HP quick launch mute button

My friend puts Windows 7 Ultimate on my computer and when I got it back, I noticed the my mute button was not turning orange when used, then I noticed my QuickPlay buttons didnt work at all. I read almost all the threads and was able to get my QuickPlay working again but for some reason cannot seem to find the right thread for my non orange mute button. I installed drivers from HP for vista and 7 and changed the compatibility to vista service pack 2 but light is still blue. Could somebody please help me? Bugs me that its not working. Oh yea, I have an HP Pavillion DV6000 series special edition. HP Pavilion dv6000 (GA449UA#ABA) Thats my product number.

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I have a Pavilion dv7-3165dx with win 7 home premium factory installed, and recently I noticed that my mute button in the quick launch buttons has quit changing to white when the speakers are unmuted. I have tried installing the latest drivers for the quick launch buttons, that didn't work. Someone solved a similar problem (button stayed white when muted) by installing something he/she called the HP Total Advisor, and taking it's advice, but I can't find the program.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and have the HP Pavilion dv7-1135nr here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3795411&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us
A few days after installing windows 7 the Quick Launch mute button is stuck on (red) indicating that the system is muted whether or not it's muted in the system tray. No sound will come out of the external speakers but headphones work fine. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the sound drivers on the support page but that limits me to only using headphones OR internal speakers (even if headphones were plugged in) by setting it through Control Panel. System restore fixed the problem for 1 day and it reoccurred.

I've just installed the newest version from HP but it doesn't affect anything: HP Quick Launch Buttons HP Pavilion dv7-1135nr Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

I found related topics with similar (but not the same) issue but none have sollved the problem. Any help to fix the solution is much appreciated.

Sounds like your keys are not mapped correctly. Does HP have some utiliity that does that for your system?

Also check the control panel and keyboard. You might be able to map those keys there.

Any help greatly appreciated. Helping a friend to fix her PC, but this exceeds my own (limited) technical know how.

The machine will start up fine, but once all programs have loaded, there is no start button or quicklaunch (yet the drag bars on the bottom bar are in place to suggest that they are there). The desktop icons are visible, but once something like My Documents is opened, the names of the files are there, but no icons. Pressing ctrl alt del has no effect.

The PC won't recognize any wireless networks, and can't connect to the internet.

I also tried installing some malware and spyware removal tools from a pen drive, but get the message "The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

Tried to bring up device manager and got this message:

"MMC failed to initialize because it was installed incorrectly, or because a portion of the registry has become corrupted. Make sure the mmcdmngr.dll is registered by running "regsvr32%SystemRoot%\system32\mmcdmngr.dll".

Thanks in advance.

Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable and do the following:

Hi Guys,

For no apparent reason today the quick launch " show desktop " icon on my taskbar has stopped working.
I've installed nothing new, run no new programs, just my typical day at the pc.

If i use the windows key + m it still minimises everything ... but i cant figure out why this button would suddenly stop functioning.

It's hardly disasterous enough to bring my computing life to a crashing halt, but i just hate when something like that happens for no apparent reason.

Anybody got any cles or theories ?

Hello, I recently upgraded to Windows 10 using my Elitebook 8540w. However, the quick launch buttons seem to be working incorrectly. When I open the quick launch buttons menu there is no 'programmable buttons' tab and I cannot adjust the function of my quick launch buttons even though that should be the case. When I uninstall the quick launch buttons driver the buttons do use my preferred programs for my internet browser and e-mail program but the functionality keys on my keyboard, i.e. for adjusting screen brightness, stop working (Fn + f8-f11). Is there any properly working driver for the HP Quick launch buttons for Windows 10 at the moment or do I just have to pick the lesser evil? Thank you in advance  

A:Quick Launch Button Software lacks 'Programmable Buttons'

Hi, All F* buttons are all ready programmed such as F1 for Help, F2 for ...... F12 for wireless... . If you wish to overwrite, you need to use other software. For example: I use a software called ISPF everyday and the program itself gives me F2 for Spit, F3 for End, F5 for Find, F7 for Up, F8 for Down, F10 for Left, F11 for Right .... up to F24. Regards.

Hi, recently I bought a new keyboard with multimedia keys
Model : Microsoft Wireless keyboard 1000
All the keys are working fine, I also installed the latest drivers and Intellitype Pro to the correct OS i'm using.
However, when I press the mute/unmute button, the volume bar shows up, but does not actually mute. It seems like it flashed the mute symbol for half a second but it still just stay unmute. I tried using the default Microsoft sound driver and the latest Realtek sound driver but still no luck.
I also tried turning HID services on and off but still the same
BUT, I remember the mute button WORKING until a few days ago.

I don't know if it is due to the Windows Update, or something to do with my motherboard driver or something else. The roll back driver option is greyed out in Device Manager so I don't assume that is the problem..

I'm currently using:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000
YAMAHA speakers YST-M15 (really old model)
Realtek High Definition Audio Driver 6.0.1.5859
ASUS M3A78-EM Motherboard

I'm really confused because if all the multimedia keys are working then it should not be a driver problem. If the volume up/down is working then it should not be speaker problem. It is ONLY the mute button that is not working.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi Andy,
Welcome to Dell community!
As you have correctly pointed out, the diagnostic code that you have mentioned is not among the codes available to isolate the failure for a Studio 1535 laptop. The closest code is: blinking Mute LED and Volume up LED, and an off Volume down LED which is for USB controller initialization failure. Disconnect any external devices connected and try powering on the computer.
Reseating the memory modules too can help us. Please refer the following link for the Studio 1535 service manual for instructions: http://bit.ly/10PrLgH
If issue persists, the laptop’s motherboard has to be replaced. Refer the following link to check the computer’s warranty status: http://dell.to/10pMa86
If the computer has active warranty, please send me the service tag and registered owner’s name on the computer in a Private Message. To send me a Private Message, click my User name, and then click Start Conversation.
If the warranty on the computer has expired, you may contact our expired warranty services to purchase/replace the compatible parts. Please refer the following link that has contact details for our Expired Warranty Services: http://dell.to/14FoBtb

I generally keep the mute button on my laptop on because I generally don't need sound. However, for a while now starting like a couple months ago, the mute button will not stay off when I turn it off. When I turn it off I'll get sound for maybe a minute or 2 and then the mute button will turn on all by itself. When I turn the mute button back off the volume is also at 0, not the level I had it at before it turned off which is what used to happen. This is extremely frustrating is there a fix?? I've tried the find and fix problems application but it comes up with nothing. My computer is also up to date.
