Mute Button Light not working

I have had my laptop for a few weeks now and the audio mute button light has stopped working: the button still mutes the sound, but the light does not work. Help me!!

Mute Button Light not working

Hi,

 

Try the following.

 

Download the Realtek HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder.

 

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp76501-77000/sp76550.exe

 

When done, hold down the Windows key and press R

 

Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter.

 

In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the Realtek device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall.

 

When the uninstal has completed, restart the notebook.

 

When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking.

 

Regards,

 

DP-K
