HP Volume Control Stuck (Windows XP)

by soxgirl45 / January 15, 2009 11:50 AM PST

My HP quick touch volume control button is stuck. It automatically increases to max power, and then if you touch the decrease button it automatically decreases to mute (and the + or - sign is blinking all the while). I looked online and this seems like a common problem, but I couldn't find the fix for Windows XP (they only had fixes for Vista and I couldn't figure out how to translate these instructiosn to XP's system). Tech support kept insisting that I reinstall the drivers, which of course didn't work at all...
Does anyone know how to fix this?

So if you restore the OS, still busted?

Then you call it in for repair.

Turn off computer, remove battery, hit power button 3 times, put battery back in & turn on computer. Should take care of problem.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
