Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

The mute Hot key on my HP Pavillion is stuck on red. I can't get any volume no matter what I try. When I touch the mute hot key it shows that the icon has been muted and then when I touch it again it takes the mute off of the icon and there is still no sound and the hot key continues to stay red. It's like its just stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Answers :

You need to update your BIOS. The easiest way is to run HP Health Check (should be installed on your laptop). It will indicate your bios is out of date - just click the warning icon and it will get the latest version and update it for you. (I needed to do this after upgrading from Vista to Windows 7.)
If your comfortable pull the key off... re seat it then try it again... or disable hp media keys and reboot. also you can try going into the control panel sound option and remove the hp media controls and then re install them after

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
