ISSUE: Use of built-in volume slider control at top of keyboard hangs ... the slider image will appear on screen and stop all other processing for perhaps 15 seconds, then flash to indicate one tick of adjustment and hang for another 15 seconds, then repeat this process for (2-3 minutes) until all ticks of adjustment have been applied, the volume adjusts, and the "slider image" on screen disappears, returning control to whatever program was active. (a royal pain!) Any solutions ? THANKS, ALL !!!!!

The "slider image" are known as OSD (On Screen Display), for Vista, HP use a software called Quick Touch software.
There maybe an issue running it in Vista-SP2 64 bit.
Try uninstall it from control panel and install it again.
There is an update for Quick Touch software, here with interesting enhancement notes:
If you wish for solid software, try 3RVX, QuickTouch equivalent, (download 3RVX_2.5.msi) freeware from Matthew Malensek
