sure there is, for sure,!!! but.....
wow no OS
stated not even a tiny hint, XP to W10 32 and 64 bit.
18 versions that are, must I GUESS? I guess w10-64 and run with that.
did you ask HP this on there HP forum, seems NOT.
why ask here, we are not HP, all we can do is guess, point at HP
or tell you how to test
for true failure cause.
that is it.
BTW, the HP forum this is asked, like 1000 times. and answer is always 1 answer, below.
the hard part here is knowing rule 1.
is it hardware bad or software.
the endless questions.
I'm not sure what icons you are talking about, can you be more clear"? are you saying the keyboard buttons fail> ? if yes which ones> (1 or all? or where)
I guess Quick launch buttons.
Here is my answer based on all things seen down wrong by customers. 20 questions.? or less.
1: did you buy the pc new. if yes what OS was there new.?
2: did you change or upgrade the OS ever.????? this kills buttons. and lots more , ask.
3: did you make 100% sure you used the right 6910 driver? NO.
4: did you know upgrading the OS with out HP permissions causes just this class of failure. I can tell you exactly why if true..?
only runs windows 2k ,xp,vista,w7)
id does not run w8,w8.1 nor w10 in any way, HP does not support
but with a qualification,, below.
same as mine.
For sure the top hardware key strip is failing; the hot keys
to the right OF MY power switch.
if lucky, it can be made to work, like me. here is how.
here is how my HP 8540w PC fails, and knew it would going in.
as 1 simple example. (i run w10 but with limits !!!)
HP , I formatted the HDD. put in a new SSD.
I then installed the microsoft w10 ISO using usb media.
W10 loads and does run. but not fully.
what fails, gee lots.
that hardware touch strip is dead.
the finger printer device all that fancy security razmataz is dead.
and will never work ever on w10
the hdd protector (gforce sensor is dead) no cure but ssd needs no such sensor so im good.
( is dead took fails for w10) this is the magic tool at HP that loads driver, missing, and is DOA, for W10
To make the key strip driver work
I had to force feed it. using w10 compat mode.
the HP has EXE file for each driver
on most it will pukee. as it sees WRONG OS
so i then (we do this all the time) we unpack the exe using
7-zip, and then find the strip driver inside and force install it and it works perfectly
in windows 10 , i downloaded the w7-65bit hp driver,
i think, (IIRC) the driver is called, HP quick launch buttons.
down load that here.
the with the the sp49104.exe file (w7-64 actual and yours0
now right click the file and pick compatibility mode. for w7-64bit.
but i had to guess what OS you ran
, and if not w10, all the above
is no good,
watch out the exe file is super spart.
it knows 2 things you do wrong.
1: wrong OS>
2: you dont have this option in this PC.
learn that the options on your PC, are coded with numbers
at the end of your model number.
see this tag (service)
see that ABA# number that tells the HP expert
what chips are in your PC, all options
mine can have 4 video cards, 3 audio chips ,3 Lan chips and 5 wifi cards. all coded there when new.
I published this at HP.com (im not HP)
I published how to hack the security pack scripts for installer
that makes it work on w10.
now learn the ONION effect, on mine this trick (both)fixed the quick launch button.
but not the wifi button (our sound)
if the driver for wifi fails so will it button
same with the 3 audio chips used, if wrong long loaded, driver.
this this and more failures will and can happen
by not asking HP if they support w10. they don't
but with carefully forced drivers loaded for w7, it does work.
also Microsoft Pnp does work on this PC for w10
that is easy to explain, HP never released them to MS.
ever. nor will they ever.
so welcome to the dark side of hacking, you are there.
now the unpack trick
use 7zip, to unpack the w7 exe.
then in that folder you made.
see setup.exe. run that. (its inside the above ,extracted.
this setup is dumber and will run under w10 if not run this setup.exe in compatibility mode.
i have more, i have journal I made to my self on my 5 elite books.
ask. or at least tell now what OS you are running.
