How do I manage to bring back a certain feature I used to have? I have a minus and plus button on the top right of my keyboard that is controls my speaker volume.
It used to show a certain number of bars right above my taskbar as to the loudness or quietness of the volume. I can't seem to get those bars to show on my desktop.
Help,please?
Thank you

Have you given Un and then Re-installing the keyboard software.

What is the make and model number of your computer?

It is a HP Pavilion a305w.
I certainly appreciate your help. The volume will work okay just by my pressing the buttons, but I no longer get the vertical bars displayed to show the volume strength.

Thank you Budapest! :flowers:
It's working just fine now. However did you know where to look????
As my system is no longer warranty, is that the reason I wasn't made aware of the update?
Thank you for your quick response :thumbsup:

I just put your model number into the HP website in the Support & Drivers section.

As my system is no longer warranty, is that the reason I wasn't made aware of the update?

I don't think they normally make people aware of the updates other than putting them on their website. Generally I do not recommend installing updates unless you are experiencing a problem (as in your case). I subscribe to the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" philosophy.
