W500_Missing green scale bar for sound and brightness

2009-01-29, 6:35 AM

For my W500, when adjust screen bightness or sound, it should show a green scale bar at bottom of screen. But it is missing now. I try to find out if any driver missing, but not.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

please try to reinstall keyboard customizer utility.

 

Follow and read the installation instructions carefully!

 

Also don´t update your system, if your computer will run satisfactionally then.

Hello lizongijn, welcome here!

 

I would suggest try to update your hotkey driver.
