W500_Missing green scale bar for sound and brightness

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 lizongijn, welcome here!

 

I would suggest try to update your hotkey driver.

Re: W500_Missing green scale bar for sound and brightness

Thanks Andreas. I have done Thinkvantage update. I think it may need driver for this. But by driver detection software, I can't get solution. I remember I miss uninstall a software like i*i, can't remember real name.

Thanks for your reply

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.
