Above the keyboard, next to the power button there was a lit up mute, volume control, and wireless control. At one point the wireless and mute button stayed amber until I did a hard reset. Now they are completely gone. The volume control and DVD controls are lit up white, but don't work. The Quick Launch icon is also gone.
The HP Quick Launch software has been update, but still nothing. I've installed the latest BIOS, but that didn't help either.
Does anyone have any suggestions? The laptop is out of warranty.

I have a diferent problem but its also with a Pavilion dv7-3079wm. I bought it in february 9 of 2010 and today when i check the warranty i discovered that was allready finished.
When i have like an hour or hour and a half using the internet or word or just listen music, suddenly the laptop stop working and the image on the screen gets frozen. Anything works and i have to shut down by the power button.
It takes like 15 minutes to restart again.
But if i just started to use it and open a videogame (age of empires) or a program which needs more graphic memory (archicad 12) the computer stop working at 5 minutes.
Does anyone have the same problem??? Someone told me that the video card its damaged on this models, it's that true???

I have the same exact problem, hard reset and the mute and wifi don't light at all, i've tried all the drivers, bios, and upgrades they recommend on here and have not found a solution. additionally, my number lock on the keypad does not work, Idk if that could be related, it's been like this for months now. i might try taking it apart and checking connections.
Do you, or anyone have any suggestions at all?
