Mute Button (touchpad)

\015 Why cant i hear any sound or music and the mute button (touchpad) is always orange instead of white like every other button, when i click the mute button , the computer mutes everything but when i click it again it says there is sound but i cant hear it, went to control panel and did not work check the sound icon and said it was ok. what else can i try, its a HP PAVILION DV5\015

Answers :

This could be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the audio drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find he sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then go to HP's support site and check for any updated sound drivers or patches. If it's a glitch this will fix it. Keep in mind that it could also be a hardware problem with the mute switch, so if the driver procedure doesn't work, you might consider having it serviced.

My touchpad mouse has stopped working. Hardware and driver are completely okey but it still does not move. The strange matter is that the mouse works only in case of pressing "mute button" on the laptop in addition to touch pad (simultaneoulsy). moreover, the enter key has stopped working and there is a continuous beep while turning on the computer (for about several seconds). Is there any relation between these events? please help me specially with my mouse.
