Default sound level on screen display.

hi peeps,

i need some help with this.

im running xp on a hp pavilion tower with wireless keyboard and mouse.

whats happened is that on the keyboard its got a little twisty control for the volume on it to adjust it.

when i used it to adjust the volume it use to come up with the volume level along the bottom of the screen in green lines.

but the last couple days it hasn't done it and the computers only about 2weeks old.

is there any way i can see if its been turned off.

Send a message via Yahoo to intercodes


usually somekinda software will be running in the system tray for these extra keyboard enhancements. If itsn't running or you uninstalled it, try to reinstall that software and change the settings in it accordingly. The s/w should come with the keybaord cd or floppy.
