Volume control buttons do not display volume levels on screen

2013-11-26, 14:23 PM

For some reason the onscreen display for the volume controls and screen brightness on my W530 stop working after coming back from sleep or resume. I updated Power Management, Hotkey and Interface but the problem still rears its ugly head.

 

If I go into screen resolution and advanced and on screen then uncheck Enable onscreen and recheck it...the controls work again.

try to reinstall the OSD software. Uninstall the current OSD software that you have, and download the latest version from below.

So you did reinstall the whole hotkey feature package?

Still didn't work. Installed without issue but when the laptop goes to sleep or hibernation the volume controls do not display. The controls work though so I know the hardware is working fine.

I have the same problem where the volume or brightness control doesn't appear on screen after lock or sleep.  The hardware works here as well.

 

Has any solution been found?

W530, Windows 7 64bit, 256SSD Crucial M4 boot drive, 1tb WD Blue in Ultrabay, 16GB m-sata expresscache drive, NVIDIA K1000M, i7-3630QM processor, 8gb RAM 1600.
