I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

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

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi, I've updated the audio hardware driver but the mute light is still not working. I am reluctant to do a system restore because as soon as there is an update, it will over wright the drivers and the problem will re appear. Please let me know when there is an update which will fix the problem.Thanks and regards.

My mute button works fine, but the light indicating mute on/off stopped working.  I had updated to latest "creator" version of Windows 10 (from Windows 10) which screwed up my printer drivers.  Reverted back to the latest version of 10 that I was on (before Creator's version):  everything seems to work but the light on mute key.   I have no idea if the light stopped working due to a hardware error (coincidentally at the time I upgraded and then downgraded windows 10) or whether in the software upgrade and downgrade to current OS, a software problem has caused the mute key light to stop working.  I'm currently running Windows 10, Home, version 1607

The light on this button has always been dark when volume was on, and orange during mute.  This condition seems to have started with recent, unknown update.   Don't know if it is a keyboard issue or sound driver issue.  Can't find drivers for either on HP drive download site.

When we press "mute" button, the led light on the button glows(orange/red light). When we switch to normal audio mode, or simply unmute, ideally the light should get off. Unfortunately, in my case, the orage/red light is still glowing even in normal (unmute) mode. I've checked all my audio/realtek controller drivers, they are updated. What must be the reason?

How's it going? I have a problem that's been driving me crazy. I'm new here so forgive me and feel free to direct me to any thread if it's been posted already.

So I have a HP DV6-2162NR laptop and the mute button (touch) is stuck in the mute position (see picture).

The button works completely fine, as in it will mute and unmute on command but the button does not change color from orange to white.

I couldn't do a system restore because there wasn't one saved. I tried disabling the sound card but that didn't work.

I'll restart it and it turns white. But as soon as Windows 7 loads, it turns orange and stays orange.

Any ideas? I'm trying to do this without resorting to a format. Thanks..

Ok, so I also made a video explaining my problem and doing some tests on it.  I've also attached a profile of all my computer's specs in the attached PDF form.  You can view the video at this link:https://goo.gl/photos/VrvjcAJy5beRt4B38For some reason, all of a sudden out of the blue, the red LED light of my Microphone mute button will not turn off.  No matter how much I press it, it doesn't go away.  It's really annoying.  In addition the button doesn't work.  I'm fine with the button not working as I've trained myself to not rely on those things anyways.  I really just want the light to go away.  It's very distracting.  The light stays on even in BIOS and the button is not doing anything. Thanks

Hello, I recently noticed that the mute light (located on F5) had stopped turning on when I pressed it. Mute works, but the light doesn't come on. I understand, from previous posts, that this can be because of problems with the Audio Driver. However, I recently had to uninstall the default Audio Driver because of issues with this (also well known with HP products.) Is there anyway of getting the mute light back, without having to resort to the old Audio Driver?  Thanks.

Hello, recently the light on the mute button stopped working. The mute itself does work...just the light never comes on.  I found some other posts about this, but thay all talked about an "IDT High Audio" driver being the issue.

The Mute Button Light on my Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd Gen) Stays On all the time. I can mute or unmute audio fine, but the light stays on. Small issue I know, but I'd like to be able to turn it off. It happened before, and someone pointed to a note somewhere that specified a keystroke combination to turn it off, but I can't remember the keystroke. Note: It wasn't a driver issue or any of the other solutions people post regarding this issue, just a simple keystroke that's laid out ... somewhere ... I can't find it in the user guide. Any ideas?

Dear Support! I upgraded my probook from win 8.1 to win 10 home and i have a few problems in relation with the audio. 1. In win 8.1 the audio driver has a dts+ software (if i remember good for the name) which can optimize the sound with effects and eq etc. The notebook sounds good with this but in windows 10 i can get this and the quality of the sound is much worse. In addition in the device manager on win 8.1 the audio card names as IDT High Definiton audio but in win 10 it is "High Definition Audio Device". I don't know whethet that matters. (also has an amd high definition audio device, but if i know good its the hdmi audio) So I want to ask how can i get this to win10. 2. The audio mute button in win 10 doesnt change color -the wifi button does it- from white to orange if there is a change. The funcionality is working so it mutes the sound. So i would like to get some solutions about that, i tried to download drivers from hp support but i didnt see anything for this. Thank you for your answers, Akos ConfigHP Probook 455 G1 with AMD A10-5750M APU

Hello all,

First time posting here as I have scoured the Internet and have not found a solution to my problem. I am hoping someone on here can help me out.

Just recently, when I go to mute the sound in Windows, it does nothing and sounds continues to still be played. The icon in my taskbar displays the red circle with the slash through it indicating that it has been "muted" when in fact it has not.

I am still able to adjust the volume with the slider and that works fine, just not mute.

Anybody have a clue as to what is going on here?

Thanks in advance for you help! This is driving my crazy!

I have a Packard Bell TJ75 laptop. Over the keyboard is a variety of touch-buttons (volume up/down, mute, wlan etc). When tapping them, they respond by lighten up, or stop glowing if I tap it again/turn it off. All the buttons respond this way, except the mute-button. When tapping it, the volume-icon on the screen shows I'm muting and un-muting. But the mute-button on the computer just keeps glowing...
