hdx18 - Treble/Bass Slide Gone Wild

I've had this computer (HDX18) since Xmas.  i'm having an intermittent problem with the slide treble/bass which will go haywire.  It starts up all by itself - I don't have to touch it - it simply comes up on the screen clicking away going up and down.  The only way I can stop it is to stop the CMOSD file through the task manager or by restarting the computer.  I had contacted support and downloaded some new drivers but it hasn't helped.  It drives me crazy!  Sometimes it does it for a few minutes and other times it will go on endlessly and I have to power down the computer.  Then it can go several days without any problems.   Hope someone has an answer!

hdx18 - Treble/Bass Slide Gone Wild

Hi:  From what I've been reading it's got something to do with the 64 bit system.  What I do to stop it is I go to the task manager and when it's happening you'll see a program called CMOSD or something like that (that's not the right letters but you can't miss it) and I end the task...  then it stops!

Well this is not a correct solution, as when you stop that process you can't adjust trebble and bass. HP should fix it. Otherwise they shouldn't give Vista x64 with the computer.

I installed a different language of Home Premium x64 and the drivers from the drivers page and works fine, but i cannot find the program for the On-Screen Display of volume and treble/bass. Is it somewhere here ?

I also have this problem and have called HP twice.  They suggested re-installing the driver much like everyone else.  I even told the tech department which program is causing it (SMOSD), but they had no solution.  The problem still is occurring.  It seems, for me anyway, that it only happens when I switch to battery power.  Very annoying, and usually have to end up rebooting.  Come on HP' give us a fix!!!

I have same/similar issue with my 64 bit HDX 16x.  It will also turn the wireless antenae off at times.  Customer support gave me a few files to download and install but nothing changed.  Very annoying and troubling that no real solutions have been posted since this thread was started.

Mine is still doing it but as noted it's mainly when running off of the battery which doesn't make any sense!
