My problem is that when I adjust the volume, either by tuning it from the keyboard or from the screen, it freezes the taskbar (the Start button, etc.) and the volume icon disappears. Then I can't do anything with the volume for like 15 minutes until it appears again.
This started happening after one of Microsoft's updates, like a few months ago. I don't know if this is connected to the problem or not.
I searched for solutions online and I found that a "hotfix" could fix this. So I downloaded it, but when I tried to install it, it says, "The update does not apply to your system."
I contacted Microsoft's support, they sent me the hotfix which didn't work. I informed them it didn't work, but they didn't help my any further.
I called my laptop's support line, they didn't help me except to tell me I should reformat the laptop.
This problem is annoying me! I can't adjust the volume (which should be a simple task) without it freezing!
Thank you for your time, and thanks in advance for any solutions.
