Hey everyone,

My laptop has recently been driving me crazy as hell. Today, my laptop has been turning the volume down to complete silence all on its own. I can turn the speaker volume up as much as I want through either the speaker icon on my desktop or by physically pressing the volume up button on my Quickplay panel on my laptop, and the volume turns right back down. It's almost as if the volume down button on my Quickplay button panel is stuck pressing down but doesn't physically feel like it.

When I restart my computer, it works fine for about 15 minutes or so, then it starts doing it out of nowhere.

It might be interesting to know that I recently got it serviced for a new fan from Circuit City about a week ago, although the problem began happening today.

I've reinstalled and repaired the drivers over and over as well as did a complete virus scan, and all I can think is maybe it's a hardware problem. Is there a possibility I can disable the Quickplay button panel? Or does anyone have any other ideas?

I'd guess that the software is corrupt...I would try uninstalling/reinstalling same, http://www.asifism.com/installing-hp-quick...ebook-vista-xp/

well, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Quickplay and the Quickplay buttons, I've tried reinstalling the sound drivers, and I've tried disabling the Quickplay startup applications through MSConfig. anyone else have any ideas?

Try calling HP/Compaq, if it's still under warranty, they should be able to fix it.
