If your HP DVXXXX quickplay buttons wont work...

Post by cespinal »

The fact: Have been using my beloved HP DV9000 for the last 18 months... and the quickplay buttons have been always malfunctioning every now and then...Some times the volume buttons lights go off... some others the whole quickplay buggers wont work, and some other the mute button goes red/pink, disabling me to control the volume from the board..
The solution:
1) Plug the AC on the laptop
2) Eject the battery
3) Pull out the cord (I did this violently...just to add some drama)
4) Plug it back
5) Turn it back on
6) Voila! the freaking #$%#$^^^$%@% buttons are back!

I can confirm this workaround.

I have a HP DV9335NR with LM 9. The above fix in the OP worked for me.

Thanks

EDIT: Well, it worked for about 5 hours. Then the bad behavior returned.
