Pavilion DV5 - 2040ca: Volume and brightness not display when changed

Hey all, I recently formatted my laptop, a HP Pavilion DV5 - 2040ca and I noticed that (even after installing the drivers), it does not display the current volume/brightness when it is changed via the shortcut keys associated with the F - keys. I was wondering which driver will enable this function on my laptop, because it would be good to have.

Thanks in advance.



For your laptop, the screen on a brightness/volume is provided by HP MediaSmart SmartMenu - you can download this from the link below.

Note:  You should have at least 1 other MediaSmart software installed (any) before installing this.

When the installation is complete, restart the laptop.

Kind regards

    Hi FAH300,

    If you are not able to format the drive, there may be a hardware problem.

    I suggest formatting the disk using the instructions linked by wb2001.

  • The volume and brightness display showing is not on the screen when I change the volume or brightness

    Hi all

    My laptop used to display the controls volume and brightness on the screen when I would try to change. A few weeks ago, he stopped, and I'm just trying to understand how to solve this problem?


    In this case, uninstall the current version, restart and then reinstall HP Quick Launch Buttons (1e) and SmartMenu again.

    Reboot after that.

    Dear customer,

    Welcome and thanks for posting your question on the Forum of Support HP

    It seems that you are not able to turn on the laptop and tried to solve the problem

    Please perform steps listed to find out if it is a hardware or software problem below:

    1. remove all cables and devices, disconnect them and try to turn on the device

    2. check the LED light situation and ensure the action of the spring button / stop is normal

    3 Exchange with a well known power cord and the AC adapter

    4 Pack no adapters are available, check if the power adaptor is slightly warm

    Note: This will give us an indication that the power adapter could be good

    5. do you know if the laptop was in battery or power adapter when you used the last time

    Note: Make sure that there is no spill of liquid or cutting

    6. check if the Port of the AC adaptor is loose/broken

    Note: If the laptop is not on even with a power adapter well known, this confirms the hardware failure with the system board or power DC Circuit

  • Sharing Facebook picture is not displayed when I use an image which is transferred to Eloqua


    I've implemented the standard functionality of sharing Facebook on a Landing Page.

    Anyone know why the Facebook sharing image is not displayed when I use an image which is transferred to Eloqua.

    As soon as I change the path of the image to an external server/site, the Facebook sharing image does not work.

    Any ideas? Everyone knows about this problem as well? And can it be resolved without the help of an external server/site?

    Thank you in advance.

    I suspect it's the media as well. To test that for sure, drop this URL in bitly to get a shorter URL without brackets and replace the longer URL, bracketed by the short URL. What will you do at least know whether or not that is the question.

  • InDesign extension is not displayed when run via the option "Debug as".

    InDesign extension is not displayed when run via the option "Debug as".

    Hi all

    I worked on an application InDesign Extension for a few months now. I am Member creative cloud. I FlashBuilder 4.6 + Extension Builder 2.1 (both licensed versions) and InDesign CS6 and CC installed on my machine. The application is targeted for InDesign CS 5.x and 6 CS and CC versions. So far, I've tested it via "run as" and "Debug as" options of the FB; and in time, I "export as" ZXP for internal versions.

    I'm having two problems, do not know if they are related.

    1. when I try to bundle manifest, it fails with the following error: (at first, I thought it was an installation problem, but I did another test project and bundle manifest works on that one)

    Could not open the Editor: an unexpected exception was thrown.

    2. my other problem is, I recently changed the name of the project and the name of the application in the Menu, and since I did that, my extension is not displayed when I perform "run as" or "Debug as" Flash Builder. To enforce as / debug as, the code compiles and appears in the folder "bin-debug", the application is triggered, but when I navigate to Windows > Extensions, my extension is not present here. Although when I export as ZXP and install via Extension Manager CS 6 or CC, it shows my last extension in Windows > Extensions with the correct name.

    Any help is very appreciated. Please let me know if I need to provide more information.

    Kind regards


    I've solved both of my problems. And I thought I'll post for others.

    First problem, where the manifest failed Bundle of FlashBuilder, was resolved by a change in the manifest.xml (who lives at /.staged-extension/CSXS). The change I made was tag. Earlier it was (generated by FlashBuilder 4.5):

    I changed it to:

    I did a bit of hit and trial and it seems that FlashBuilder generated 4.5 tag host with the Version with only the specialties of the minimum version while FlashBuilder 4.6 requires that all versions of specialties listed in the Version attribute.

    The second problem of debug/run as not to install the extension properly in InDesign, has been set as a result of the software update of FlashBuilder.

    This is what brought me to do:

    I retraced my steps and realized last thing I did before the "Debug as Adobe InDesign Extension" of in FlashBuilder broke on my machine has been updated InDesign CS6 to the latest available version, which probably ended up with flash/flex versions of InDesign and FlashBuilder. Therefore, perform a fixed update debugging.

  • SGV item is not displayed when downloaded html

    Image SGV referred to as in is not displayed when all edge generated files are downloaded to--and yet it works fine when all the edge files are read on the local hard drive.

    The code was generated with Edge and remains raw - it is a simple document with a layer of SGV any

    In the meantime - the raw SGV works when played directly on the server ("describes" text from illustrator) -

    All things being equal - when we have included GIFs layer in the same file, gif displays fine in line while svg is not there - so it can't (I think not) be a simple relative or absolute for issues of image path. Naturally, the SGV may be displayed but without black fill I guess but why would it only when it is on a www server.

    I'm stumped and would have thought that Edge would not need tweaking on such a file but even if we would like to play with such things far so suggestions or of the popular workarounds.

    Thank you

    Hey Gav,

    In the post below, Schrene explains how to enable SVG support via a .htaccess file:

    To quote Schrene:

    You only see your s on Go Daddy SVG because they do not support of SVG MIME type.

    You must add a file .htaccess on Go Daddy to include SVG

    Use Notepad and disable Word wrap... copy and paste this:

    AddType image/svg + xml .svg day

    AddEncoding x-gzip day

    Save the document with the .htaccess

  • Firefox does not display the changes on the site after the remote host; Refresh does not work

    I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 on my machine, and since it has been wiped off I installed CS5, reconfigured my Dreamweaver site and made changes to our page index.html (so far).  After you put the files on my remote server, I noticed that Firefox does not display the changes I made to this file - it is to show the page previously recorded on my CS4 version.  Thinking it was a cache problem, I emptied, refreshed/reloaded several times, restarted Firefox - nothing has worked.

    I checked the page in IE8 and all changes are not displayed correctly.  I used BrowserLab to display a preview in IE, Firefox (same version 3.6 which I use) and Safari, and all 3 display correctly version update of the page.  Visualization in 'live' of Firefox seems to be the problem, and I've looked everywhere for answers. Help is needed and appreciated!

    It is possible that you redefined the site incorrectly and put the files to the wrong address on the server. Carefully check both your local and remote sites definitions.
