I've had my HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop for a year now, and apart from a persistent (and slightly annoying) overheating issue, I've been very pleased with this machine.

Recently, however, the touch-sensitive media control strip along the top of the keyboard has begun to malfunction. The sound toggle and volume control sections of the backlit strip turn off, flicker, change color (red and blue) and otherwise stop working.

To make things even worse (or more interesting) such errors like the light flicker seem to be tied in to my typing on the keyboard, especially around the wasd area (left and lower side).

I'm figuring this to be some sort of shorting circuit or the like? It's odd... sometimes I can fix the error by randomly tapping along the left side keys. Now it seems to be stuck with the entire strip non-responsive, and both blue and red LEDs behind the sound toggle turned on.

If anyone could suggest a solution? It's that or I'm debating just taking the laptop in for a repair run.
 

A:HP laptop touch-sensitive control problem

If the thing is still under warranty, then you should have it repaired by an official HP representative.

Other than that, you could try removing the keyboard and making sure that the keyboard cable is making good connection.

(Also, you haven't poured something in the lappy, have you?)

Seems many people with touch screens are finding what worked with the developer version have been ripped out for the Consumer Preview. Why did they do this? I contacted Planar the maker of my touchscreen and they said Microsoft removed the Control Panel for touch screen devices and they are not sure why.

My touch screen clicks itself into the middle of the screen, uset to go into a HP window within the control panel to disable it but since upgrading to windows 7 (thinking it might solve it) the window has gone and now the beeps are driving me insane.

My computer is the IQ700 and I've upgraded from Vista home 32 bit to 7 home 32 bit.

I recently had my Lenovo Ideapad 100S-14IBR serviced and there was a swap out of the motherboard and harddrive.   Before the servicing, my machine had an Elan touchpad.  After the servicing, I now have a Synaptics touchpad.  This is all well and good, but I have no control over customizing the scrolling and clicking of the point.  I am able to open the Synaptics Control Panel, though the options for changing "Tap," "Drag & Drop," and other functionalities are not available to me to customize (i.e. they are greyed out).  I've updated the driver with the options available for my machine from the Lenovo website, and I have tried to update the driver via the files available from the Synaptics website.  However, no success.  Granted, this issue is not critical when it comes to the functionality of my machine, it is quite annoying and does make typing / navigating the interface difficult.  Any advice/insight would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome cedeic now what did you install Windows with?? Did you do a factory default or slip in a new OEM or retail version?

Now you could do mate is to do a system restore and then set the updates to what I have in my pic and load the updates in batches until the one that is causing problems shows itself that means another system restore to just before it was installed and when it comes up just right click on it and "Hide" that update then carry on updating.

I'm running windows XP on an old Dell Inspiron 1501 and I'm trying to get my microphone to play directly through my speakers so I can record them both simultaneously. The only answer I've been finding is to tick the 'microphone' checkbox in the volume control playback properties panel, but I don't have a microphone checkbox.There should be a 'microphone' box under SW Synth and CD player but I don't get one apparently.I've downloaded the latest SigmaTel Audio drivers from Dell and despite not having a problem with them before this, I'm inclined to believe that they're the problem. Any ideas?

Okay well of course I find an answer right after posting the topic:

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3517/p/18112824/18235810.aspx#18235810

Those two pages detail how to get an Input Monitor checkbox which functions just like the microphone one I wanted (although you can only mute it, not alter the volume). I used Instructional Set 3 from the second page, having to add the 'RecMonitorMute' entry as detailed in the first page and I can now hear my microphone input directly through my speakers.

HOWEVER, I'm still unable to record both the microphone and speaker sound at the same time. I thought recording the 'Stereo Mix' channel with the microphone coming through the speakers would work but it isn't and I don't know why. Any ideas?

Hello!
I got myself an Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ condenser microphone a few weeks ago, and I haven't really found out how I can change the gain, which I hear is important to do.
There is only one slider where the gain slider also should have been. The mic doesn't have a gain know like some other microphones have.



As you can see there is one slider. It only changes volume as far as I know.

How can I change the gain, is it needed, or can I maybe control gain using the volume slider?
If I can't change it directly through the mic or through the control panel, how can I change it? D:

Thanks in advance!

A:Can't control gain! No slider in control panel!

I have a recording studio (Sonar X3) and use several AT mics but they are not USB mics (such as the AT2035 and AT2050).

"Volume level" is the same as "gain". You can adjust the "Volume Level" or you can adjust the "gain" - both are the same thing. On mixers, amplifiers, etc, some will call the volume control "level" and others "gain".

A USB mic should have its own listing in the Sound/Recording Panel. Whatever slider that is has, such as what you show, should adjust the volume level. Many recording programs also have volume level adjustments.

Hi,
 
Looking for advice on how to find where the touch pad settings may be hidden on this laptop I'm working on?

Hi loki2007 Usually, Windows install it's own Microsoft Legacy Drivers for a touchpad on a laptop, and these drivers doesn't enable the "Advanced" settings that allows you to control the touchpad. In order to do that, you have to install the laptop touchpad drivers which will add that tab in the Mouse options.Download and install these drivers:http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/TouchPad/Touchpad_Synaptics_9.1.16_Vistax86.zip?acerid=633639058794305220&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%205520&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_4Let me know if they install or not.

However I would like them to have the ability to control their own print jobs and unpause printers etc. But when editing the policy I find that they get access to control panel at the same time and can do lots of possible damage.

Can I do this any way while minimising possible damage? We are running an NT4 network with some 95 and some NT workstations.

That's what operators of the Havex malware family have done with aplomb, according to a report published Tuesday by researchers from antivirus provider F-Secure. Over the past few months, the malware group has taken a specific interest in the types of industrial control systems (ICS) used to automate everything from switches in electrical substations to sensitive equipment in nuclear power plants. In addition to the normal infection channels of spam e-mail, the malware operators have added a new tack—replacing the normal installation files of third-party software with tainted copies that surreptitiously install a remote access trojan (RAT) on the computers of targeted companies.

Here is my hijackthis text file.
 

A:Control/C Control/V control/alter/delete doesn't work

Mary, keyboard problems are not invariably software or malware-related. First things first - what OS are you talking about ? XP, Win 7, Win 8 or what? What type of keyboard is it? PS2, USB or wireless?

Disconnect it and reconnect it a few times, reboot and try again. Turn the keyboard upside down, placing one end on the edge of a thick book, and thump a few times on the back with your hand. Sweep the crud onto the carpet.....

Is it just a keyboard hardware problem, and if so which keys? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/keyboard-shortcuts#keyboard-shortcuts=windows-7 tells you a lot of key combinations with ctrl and shift and alt. Tell us if any or none work?

Open a document and try typing a bit of text. Do all the characters work?

If it appears the keyboard is faulty, can you borrow another to test?

Quite often, keyboard problems are down to wireless problems: and can often be solved by re-installing the keyboard driver.

Just this week I got a refurbished Compaq Armada E500 laptop. It came with 98SE installed and all drivers, etc. I've been to both Windows update and HP's website double checking that I've got the most current things installed. The problem is, I'm having a devil of a time controlling the cursor using the touchpad - unlike anything I've ever experienced before, and this is the third laptop I've used which has a touchpad. Every time I let go, the thing flies halfway across the screen and I can't get it to stay put unless I hang on for dear life.

As far as I can tell, there are NO specific "touchpad" drivers available - the mouse control panel does NOT address "sensitivity" or anything like that.

For the time being, I've hooked up my optical mini-mouse via the USB port, and it is working just fine. Installing those drivers (which were apparently included in Windows) did nothing to help my touchpad, though.

If this IS a driver and/or sensitivity problem (as I suspect), WHERE the heck do I start?

Good thing this isn't supposed to be my primary laptop! I got it specifically to be able to run programs/games/etc. that I can't on my newer, faster XP-driven laptop. But it would be nice to be able to use the touchpad properly

Thanks for any help you can give me!

I have an HP Envy M7-J120DX-17.3" laptop running Windows 8.1. I've had this machine for about 8 months now and have loved it.
 
Over the last while now I've had an issue where I suddenly lose control of the mouse - the cursor starts jumping all over opening random things. I get the grey circles as when one touches the screen except they're popping up all over the place. I'll immediately shut everything down. When I reboot it doesn't show itself right off but eventually it returns.
 
I've attached a couple of images of the laptop screen so you could see what I'm dealing with - I've circled in red the "touches" that I could catch with my camera. The shots are of my desktop screen - the "touches" bounce around like fireworks going off but don't hit anything as they're more concentrated in the middle of the screen. If my Windows 8.1 screen was up, everyone of those "touches" that happened to hit a tile would open it. When on the internet it's a nightmare because bookmarks, links etc all can randomly be touched and opened. I had to drag the virus scan shown off to the side so it wouldn't get messed up during it's run.

A:Touch Screen / Mouse out of Control

Hi Krooz,
 
I'm not an expert on this, but it seems similar to a problem that I've had with my Surface Pro 3.  If you live in a humid area, use evaporative cooling (swamp coolers), or accidentally leave the laptop in the bathroom while taking a hot shower,  moisture can get between the LCD and Digitizer assembly and create these "ghost touches" you are experiencing.  As you have mentioned the touches appear to be concentrated in the center line.  This could also be cause if you carry the laptop around by hand (like a book) and the pressure and friction (and sometimes sweat) from your arm can affect the screen.  
 
The way I have dealt with this before was to fold a large towel several times and place on a flat surface,  Prop the laptop with the back of the lid flat on the towels.  Take a hairdryer and carefully heat the screen to soften the adhesive between the screen and digitizer.  Then take a clean dry folded hand towel and with firm, but GENTLE pressure wipe from the middle of the screen outward.  Much like removing air bubbles from under a sticker.  Depending on how much moisture is trapped in the screen this may not work.  If this does not fix the issue, you could always go into Human Interface Devices in Device Manager and disable the HID-compliant touch screen, and just use it as a standard laptop.

Good news is you won't have to reinstall Windows. Bad news is that you've most likely got a virus on your PC.

I highly recommend that you head over to the HijackThis forums. Follow this 5 Step Guide to post a log. The analysts over there will help you remove any viruses or nasties from your system.

We can try something to see if we can re-enable control panel. Note that if the virus or spyware program that disabled control panel is still on the computer this fix may only work temporarily or not at all.

My control panel is gone, I have win xp and im looseing my mind. please help me.

A:control panel is gone

First off, have you installed or uninstalled anything since the last time you saw the control panel?

Also are you trying to access control panel from the Start menu or from My Computer? If it is the start menu, the control panel link can be hidden.


If that dosen't work there are a lot of sites that report this same problem, this one seems to have a fix:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114010.html

It seems to involve a lot but it is one of the only ones that seem to have the problem fixed.

There are also these, but they don't seem to have confirmed fixes, although they may be a good resource.

Hello. Just recently I went into the Programs and Features to uninstall a program. A few hours later, I went to uninstall something else, but in the Programs and Features, it only showed a few programs. I tried messing with the views, but it didn't solve the problem. I know these programs are installed, for I can still use them. My friend told me to use this program that uninstalls programs, but the same thing happened. The program didn't show all my installed programs. I am really stuck and don't know what to do. I cant find any answers online, and I really need some things uninstalled. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

I wrote most of this yesterday (11/06) and posted it to another help forum where it hasn't been responded to. I've added a bit more info today. I found this forum and HOPE someone here can help us out.

My husband clicked on 'ok' when a pop-up came up saying updates were available for Netscape...guess it wasn't from Netscape I found this out after I had done some of the things I've done.

McAfee found 10 or so trojans and was only able to quarintine and/or remove two.

Last week I had a problem and was instructed by McAfee to uninstall then reinstall my McAfee program, which I did and it repaired the problem. So I uninstalled it again...but cannot get the McAfee website to load now .(I called a friend and they could get it no problem, so the issue is my computer). ...and I use the downloaded version so have no disk.

Before I uninstalled McAfee I did write down a few of the things it said (but not all. duh)
proper.exe
winter.exe
porkaa.exe
e ...that's all it said: e
McAfee popped up saying both porkaa and e were requesting access to the internet. I blocked access to porkaa no prob...but when I blocked e the screen went blue and read
"dump to disk1
dump to disk 2"
I cut the power and rebooted.

McAfee said last update was on 10/29..think that was when I had un/reinstalled the program. Automatic updates were supposed to happen.

the following are all applications that were created 11/06:

Trying to bring back my daughters laptop without doing a complete restage as her boyfriend is certainly causing her (and now I!) some grief.

I've added her to my Zone Alarm Security Suite (get 3 PC's ) and ran both spyware/virus which cleaned up a lot. Had to run SmitFraudFix which I found on a helpful forum and it ran to completion to bring back the control panel in safe mode. Still can't get the control panel back in regular mode though. Also still have other unexpected restrictions. Does this hijack log give any indication of why or whether there are any other problems?

Once I get this all cleaned up (if possible) I'll bring her current with Windows updates and SP's.

Thank you for your review!

Ok well I have let this problem sly for a bit after removing some malware awhile back ago. Everything seemed fine but the Control Panel. It is disabled for the most part and can't use any of the tools inside it. It tells me "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." This is the only problem that I still have an issue with after the removal of the malware, so I believe a certain something was not removed. Any support?

Please print out and follow the generic instructions for using "SmitfraudFix".(If you have downloaded SmitfraudFix previously, please delete that version and download it again as the tool is frequently updated!)-- If the tool fails to launch from the Desktop, please move smitfraudFix.exe to the root of the system drive (usually C:\), and run it from there.Please download MsnCleaner.zip and save to you Desktop. In addition to removing infected files, it will remove certain restrictions on your system often disabled by malware.Extract (unzip) the file to your desktop. (click here if your not sure how to do this) but DO NOT use it yet.Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8. To do this restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A boot menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Double-click MsnCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click the "Analyze" button.A report will be created after the scan and will be saved to C:\MsnCleaner.txt.If it finds an infection, click the "Deleted" button.Reboot normally and post the contents of MsnCleaner.txt in your next reply.

i have had multiple problems with spyware and malware, and i feel like i have finally got rid of the majority of them. There is still one major problem and that is, i cant open the control panel and access my computers properties. when i ran spybot, one of the problems that appeared was;

would it be alright to simply delete that file?

i've gone through the registry and changed the binary value to 0 and i've been able to access the control panel after restarting. however, after awhile it just changes back to 1.

also, almost everytime i turn on my computer i get a warning that says "C:\WINDOWS\shell.exe" cannot be found.

Hello. I wasn't entirely certain where to put this because I'm fairly new, so forgive me. My problem is I encountered a virus a couple of days ago (winavXX.exe) and a couple of others. I did a little research online and found that it could be pesky and needed immediate removal. I downloaded Prevx 2.0 and it removed all of the components without any trouble.

The problem is my taskmanager and control panel no longer appear. I did some further googling and found the "Lost Control Panel" thread by 'HarleyGirl14.' I followed the initial instructions and downloaded Deckard's System Scanner. The scan worked fine and I got the two text files. After she sent the extra file, she was told to download Combofix.exe and follow the instructions. I've downloaded Combfix but will not run it until you've seen my extra file. Here it is below.

How did you get to the Control Panel, clicking the Settings item on the Start menu or right-clicking the Start button and choosing Control Panel? Changing the power settings shouldn't affect getting to the Control Panel.

Hi, Try the following. Download the Realtek HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73001-73500/sp73189.exe When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the Realtek device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72501-73000/sp72862.exe When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

hello

I have a HP Compaq nx7010 running Windows XP Home Edition SP2. I was browsing the web searching for a medicine properties and I guess it was when the virus entered my computer. It has been almost 4 weeks now. The virus was a Trojan (Winavxxx or something like that), it appeared as a yellow triangle with "!" sign in the middle resembling windows alerts; alerting me of potential spyware action. Minutes later a pop-up appeared and if I click on it (which I did by mistake, was chatting and hit the enter key when it poped-up) it will re-direct me to a home page which I never used. I also got my homepage changed (hijacked) to google.

I had tried various anti-virus softwares (Norton, AVG, McAfee) and it didn't detect the Trojan nor it avoided its entrance. Now I have Avast!

I have tried many things to kill the virus and work normally. I downloaded SPYNOMORE (by that time I was aware of the Trojan and its big power), I had to re-start my computer and then all got worse.

When I started in Safe Mode, I was not able to see the Control Panel icon anymore.
I tried to uninstall the SPYNOMORE but it didn't let me do it since I was working in Safe Mode. Finally I downloaded SPYBOT SEARCH&DESTROY, and run it. It found many undesirable files and removed them. Same thing with SPYWARE TERMINATOR, it found many problems and claimed it had solved them.

But it did not. The system was still working slow with the same pop ups and yellow triangle when I tried to st... Read more

Hello Rock316, you mentioned you were the administrator before, are you not the administrator now? In order to make changes to your system you will have to be the administrator.
See if this will help. Right-click on Start>Properties, on the Start Menu tab click Customize. Now on the Advanced Tab there is an option to display Control Panel, click Display as a link. Reboot.
