T61 sound buttons (mute/up/down) not working at the moment...

2009-07-08, 12:22 PM
6465 63U machine, and since yesterday (7 July 09) these buttons have not worked. I did change some of the settings in msconfig area per the HP tech and now cannot use these buttons. Can anyone provide some insight as to which services must be enabled to permit these buttons to work properly, once again? TIA, Samuel

Your question is not very clear, but I'll try to help you. I'm assuming you're talking about the volume buttons directly on the keyboard itself.  If you are talking about the green-colored volume indicators that appear on the LCD screen when you press the volume buttons on the keyboard itself, that is controlled by the Hotkey driver. You can go to this site and install the driver:




Hope this helps.
