RAID 5 - Disks are working, but the Volume listed as Stopped Working

Q: RAID 5 - Disks are working, but the Volume listed as Stopped Working

I have had a rather large problem over the last couple of days It started earlier in the week when one drive stopped working Not a big problem I ve had drives fail before disks so i can handle one less for a little while i though Not so though while still waiting for my new drive using my computer like usual with less load on unit D i suddenly start getting as Disks - Volume working, RAID the but Stopped Working 5 listed are write-errors to D and the Intel Matrix Storage Console RAID 5 - Disks are working, but the Volume listed as Stopped Working lists it as Stopped Working instead of Degraded Nothing changed RAID 5 - Disks are working, but the Volume listed as Stopped Working except for the status of the Volume all the disks read the same as before fully functional I have very little experience with these sort of matters This is the first time I ve lost a drive where i might lose data as well and i have pretty much no idea where to go from here I ve tried to replace the faulty disk with another GB drive but the RAID-setup in BIOS just tells me there isn t enough space and the Console in Windows places the new drive as a Non-RAID drive I can mark it as reserve but that seems to be all i can do with it I m not hopefully asking for miracles I have just two things that i really need to retrieve from the Volume my Firefox sessions saved in a separate folder at the root of the drive and my Thunderbird mail stored in their standard location as my whole Windows-profile is on that drive Everything else i can get again Well not really i have stuff stored up from - years back from people who has withdrawn from the net and taken everything with them or died Old stuff that is no longer available on the net and so on But i could live with that loss It would be hard but i could do it The mail though stretch almost the whole way to when i first started using internet back in DOS and the Firefox sessions contain close to a hundred windows in total and probably over a thousand tabs Most i will never be able to find again no matter how long or hard i search That s a pretty devastating blow The thought of loosing all that is making me nauseous Any help i can get to retrieve the data is appreciated I couldn t put into words how thankful i would be if i got it back ASUS Maximus Formula SE motherboard now x Western Digital GB Caviar Anyting else you need to know please ask Any help at all is welcome nbsp

Preferred Solution: RAID 5 - Disks are working, but the Volume listed as Stopped Working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First time posting blush Situation I have two hard drives main drive Seagate GB w windows xp and second drive WD TB blank Without backing up the main drive ops i went ahead and enabled RAID on both drives and created a RAID volume KB strip Size TB GB NOTE the RAID volume size is only showing the exact space of the TB excluding the GB drive After realizing that I needed to create a backup image of my main drive to use RAID with an existing drive I m left with the quot Operating System Not Found quot message RAID volume disks deleting to RAID non-RAID issue - restore Question If I Delete RAID Volume which is based on the size from the blank TB drive will both drives become available as non-RAID disks and keep the original data on the GB main drive and be able to run windows again I m using software RAID through Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM v I understood that quot Resetting the drives to Non-Raid quot will cause all data on the disk to be lost so this isn t the approach that RAID issue - deleting RAID volume to restore non-RAID disks I ll be taking til I find a solution to backup my data However from reading the quot Delete RAID Volume quot option it listed Deleting a volume will destroy the volume data on the drive s and cause any member disks to become available as non-RAID disks so knowing that the RAID Volume is blank then maybe trying this will be the answer When using the Microsoft Recovery Console in RAID mode attached w both drives logically there isn t any directories files found At the moment I m seeing if I can find any data in the MR Console with RAID disabled and accessing only the main drive Just wondering if Knoppix or Data recovery softwares can backup the data Thanks to anyone taking the time to read my post nbsp

A:RAID issue - deleting RAID volume to restore non-RAID disks

sadly, there's no way to do what you want without an existing backup.

Look at it this way;
A disk has a container ~ the partition.
The partition as a structure ~ the filesystem (eg NTFS, FAT32, RAID).
We put our data into the structure.

When we create backups, we are getting only the data itself (unless you use an image program like Ghost or Acronis where you get all three).

Deleting the RAID will give back the two independent HDs, but also breaks the structure so that the data becomes in accessible.

Does you mother board have an option for ahci/raid? Maybe it decided to go ahci. If so change it back to raid.

My board has a habit of changing things around when I try to tweak it too much.

The FN/brightness works fine.
Any suggestions?
I searched the forum but could not find an answer to this specific problem.

Try pressing Alt+Ctrl+Fn and see whether it works.
You could also try reinstalling Acer Launch manager.

I have a Toshiba Satillite laptop running Windows 8 which I use for storing, recording and playing back music. Everything worked fine until a few weeks ago when the volume keys on the keyboard stopped working. I still get sound at whatever level is set and I can adjust the volume if I access the sound control slider, but the two volume keys have stopped working.

I saw some advice on a Microsoft web page saying if there were sound problems to change the setting in the 'Human Interface Device from Manual to Automatic which I did but it made no difference.

Can you advise me please.

A:Volume Keys stopped working

Too bad that you waited this long. A System Restore back to a date when it did work probably would have taken care of it. As its been several weeks, its too long to fall back.

One thing that worked on a user with a desktop was to uninstall the keyboard in the Device Manager, then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the keyboard. However, if you have a log on password, this will not work.

Normally, with Windows 10, if I use the slider and turn off the Volume in my taskbar, if I play a video or whatever, I cannot hear anything. But lately all of a sudden, even if the Volume Control is off, the sound is still on if I do anything on my computer, which is not good because if my speakers are on, it wakes up the person I am living with.

I did a System Restore but it still is not helping any. So in the morning now, I have to try to remember to turn the Volume all the way down on my speakers, or else it wakens my friend.

Can anyone help me to fix this problem please?

The system is Windows Vista fully updated. Toshiba Satellite. Intel Core 2 Duo T5550, what else needed?

A:volume control applet has stopped working

Run the system file checker (sfc) which should replace any defective files. MS instructions are here. Basically run cmd as administrator, brings up cmd.exe window, enter "sfc /scannow" no quotes, space before the / and then Enter. It will take a few minutes. See if there is any difference.There may be other workarounds. There could also be something that is corrupting the file. I didn't think Vista used that file.Edit: Assumed that this occurs every time you reboot, not a one-off crash.

Hi Guys.

On my HP keyboard are 3 silver buttons which control the volume. up, down and mute.
When you press on one of them, a scroll bar thing appears, and you can see what you are doing.

Now, all of a sudden, the bar does not appear.
The volume control still works when pressing them, but where has the scroll thing gone ?

A:Volume control on keyboard stopped working.

Happened to me before. Did you uninstall "HP SmartMenu"? Check whether it's in your installed programs' list. If it's not go to HP Support & Drivers | United States

Look up your laptop model number by typing into CMD:

wmic /namespace:\\root\wmi path MS_SystemInformation

Download SmartMenu, reboot, and it should be fixed.

Can Bitlocker be used to encrypt mirrored disks in a RAID 1 volume?

If so, What happens when one drive fails?
Will I be able to read the other drive?

On another note, would I be able to take that 2nd drive from this computer and put it into another computer and get the files? (assuming I have the password)

Thanks for any help on this issue.

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

Hey, Fellas, I'm back.
Lately when I've tried looking at different folders and files on my hard drives I keep getting "Windows Explorer has stopped working and will restart." It's driving me nuts, I can barely do anything.
Also, same thing with Internet Explorer...I'm getting real sick of Vista's shoddiness..

A:Windows Explorer Stopped Working, Internet Explorer Stopped Working, what DOES work?

Hi,
Have a look at the events log and make a virus scan too.

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

Do you have Windows on the drive now? How did you load the drivers? Drivers won't function without an operating system, so I'm a little confused about exactly what you did.

How did you run the setup utility? Does your machine support hardware RAID or are you using software RAID? Are there RAID settings in BIOS?

I have used "Data Execution Prevention" (DEP) listing my ACDC file viewer. I listedACDC because after it completes normally each time, there is an error message that says "Application has stopped working." I no longer want to see this error message.I use ACDC 7 for viewing and editing graphic files, here with this Windows 7 (64) system.

I usually select files with Windows Explorer, and they open using ACDC.

When I close the last file viewed, I get this error message that says "ACDSee 7.0 Application has stopped working"Installations of this ACDC on other Windows 7 computers do not have this issue. So I need to resolve it.

Upon Boot there is a black screen with windows rollback listed and windows 7, if I do not select windows 7 it auto boots to the rollback thing which is just a windows background with a cmd box.

How can I get it to autoboot to the working windows 7 one instead or remove the other one from boot?

So far i've burned 2 data dvd's using nero and neither are readable by my regular dvd-rom drive(pioneer dvd-120) but they read fine in the burner(optorite ddo405). I'm using 4x memorex dvd-r disks. The first disk I burned at 4x and the second I one at 2x, no difference. I also have a HP laptop with Teac dvd/cdrw drive and it cant read them either. Is there something i'm doing wrong or a setting that I may have missed? The dvd's have avi's on them if that makes a difference.

My parents gave me their old Sony Vaio PCV-RX650 with Restore Disk#1 and #2. I did a low level format and wiped everything clean but the restore disks are not recongized. They are slightly scratched which could be the problem. The tower has a product registration key for Windows XP Home. Will any XP disk work? If anyone has any anwsers for these questions please let me know! Thanks!

I have contacted Sony VAIO and they will not replace any disks because they said the computer is outdated.

A:Restore Disks not working

As far as the product key for your computer, you should be able to use any Windows XP Home OEM CD to re-install Windows with that key. OEM CDs are the type that computer builders and manufacturers, as well as some people who self-build computers use to install Windows.

As far as the recovery CDs, I assume you have the computer set to boot from CD in the BIOS? Sometimes recovery CDs are also just duds, it happened to me once too.

A:DVD-R Disks Aren't Working

I'm using a store brand of DVDRW.Click to expand...

Always buy quality media. Store brands usually aren't. Also, DVDRW media, isn't very reliable. Use DVD-R as you listed in the title of the thread. You can try this, but I don't think it's gonna fix your problem. I think your problem is the media you used.

Go into your Device Manager, and find your drive. Right click on it, and choose "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install new a driver for you.

I have tried to tell people that this is what happens when you use Memorex, Khypermedia, and most store brands of media (mostly any media made in Taiwan. Verbatim is the exception). They record ok, and look ok the first time or two you watch them. But when you go back, to watch them again, they may be unwatchable. When buying blank dvds, look on the package for "Made In Japan". It's usually near the bar code. That's not saying you'll never have problems. But you'll have a lot less problems associated with bad media. Sony, Maxell,and Fuji, are good brands, if you get the ones "Made In Japan" (MIJ). MIJ Fuji discs are getting very hard to find though. Verbatim is the only Taiwan made (MIT) media, you should consider.

If the reinstall of the hardware, through the device manager works, I'd copy your discs over to better media, while you can. If it doesn't, I don't think there's much you can do to save what you've burned. I think most software used to encode and burn dvds, puts the files in a folder, on your hard drive. You may find the files for one burned dvd. If you used the same software to do all the dvds, it uses the same folder and overwrites what's in it, each time you do another dvd. That's why I say you might find files for one dvd you burned.
Good luck!

A Recovery little detail here I have a Vaio PCV-RS It s got a c partition for windows xp a d partition for media and a restore partition The restore partition won t work I tried to restore the C partition the computer restarted and tried to access the restore partition I think it did But I get a screen that says quot Cannot determine partition settings This utility will close and your computer is restarted quot So I ordered the recovery partition CD s Guess what They don t work I put in CD one out of seven it does it s thing I think since after a little but it says to take the CD out of the drive and restart the Recovery disks not working. A slightly different take........ machine I do so and it goes right back to the same old trick it s SUPPOSED to go to the next step and start a recovery wizard But it doesn t Now here s where it gets fun I ve taken the HD out and installed it as a slave to another Recovery disks not working. A slightly different take........ computer It reads all three partitions So I happen to know that if I can get the computer Recovery disks not working. A slightly different take........ to boot up normally instead of trying to boot from the restore partition I can go about this a better way Now as I understand it there is something on a computer that places boot instructions on the HD so that when it tries to boot from the HD it ll boot from the restore partition instead of the C partition like normal How do I get it to stop going after the restore partition that s corrupt and can t seem to be fixed by the restore partition restore cds and boot like normally since I clearly see all the proper files are still there remember at no point did the restore process actually start and I verified that the files are there when I installed the drive in another machine What I am trying to do is to boot the machine normally into windows xp which I know to work I m reinstalling due to a printer driver that s stupid so that I can access the recovery wizard there since it won t come up from the boot I know it ll come up from there fine and then I can use the recovery partition recovery cds to fix this issue once and for all Also more detail I have verified that the recovery partition recovery cds are NOT corrupt or defective the ARE working disks so this issue is clearly something wrong with the boot process nbsp

A:Recovery disks not working. A slightly different take........

no responses? Oh well. musta been a hard one.

Well, I'll let you in on the fix.
In this case this worked, in other's, I can't say for certain it'll work but it did this time.

I went to bootdisk.com and nabbed the xp quickboot, it worked but still no boot because my computer said my hal.dll file was missing or corrupt, something I would have never known because I never got that far. So I couldn't figure out how to replace it at first....until I remembered that when the HD was in the other computer I could see the restore partition. I lucked out. I installed it into the other PC again and opened the restore partition. Grabbed the hal.dll file and copied it onto the C partition in the proper location. Then I put the HD back in it's own tower again.
The computer booted right up using the bootdisk and I was able to then recover the system.

A:Windows 7 Restoring Using Factory Disks NOT Working

Two things you can try:

1. Make sure that you have nothing attached to your laptop during restoration like say a forgotten memory card in the memory card slot.

2. Make sure that you have the wireless turned on in your laptop during restoration. Sometimes the restore process may require an internet connection.

If these things do not get you the results, contact HP Technical support. They may send you new recovery disks. ( I understand that the recovery disks for some models were faulty.)

That said it is a sin not to have created the Recovery Disks yourself when you received the laptop. The recovery Disks created by the users had no problems.

Using the recovery partition to restore would have been the best option rather than the recovery disks.

Again it is a sin that you didn't care to note down the COA key and keep it safe.

I can give you two solutions in case HP Technical Support fails to resolve your problem and your system is not broken. ( There is a 10% chance your system is broken). But both require that you have access to an identical in all respects HP System. Nothing hanky-panky anyway since you own a genuine HP system.

Hi there.

I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a Compaq pressario SR1629UK, there was a huge problem and I need to do a destructive recovery however they PC came with no disks. I have tried an F10 recovery but even tho I repeatedly press F10 the pc starts as normal. Is there any other way I can do a recovery or access the recovery with out disks?

Regards

A:Compaq Presario...F10 Recovery Not Working and No Disks

Hello ladyrazzor, welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Try this instead:
Go to your Start menu.
Under Programs or All Programs, look for PC Help and Tools. (or something similar)
Under Help and Tools, if you see it, click on Compaq System Recovery.
You will be asked if you really want to start system recovery, click Yes.

If asked to reboot, do so.
I've never used this method to do a recovery on my Compaq-the only thing I know is the option is there under the Start Menu.

If that doesn't work, you can try something else. Also in Help and Tools, you may see an option to make recovery disks.

Good luck, let us know what happens.

Is there somewhere to go on a working PC to burn recovery cd's? The last time I installed Vista, it prompted me to make recovery disks. I was only able to make 4 of them. I believe there are supposed to be 5 or 6 disks. It won't allow me to finish recovery without the other disks.

A:Burn recovery disks from working Vista computer?

Hi -

Each system manufacturer can have different methods of burning recovery discs. Try this -
START | type recovery - what options come up?

Also, check your system manufacturer's web site - "Support". They usually have a copy of the owner's manual which contains the instructions for burning the recovery DVDs.

A:Boot & Live Disks not working. Can't clean install.

If the hard drive can pass the long test it's most likely fine. If the RAM is bad you'll know from doing several passes in memtest. It will show the errors very clearly.

Try to boot a linux distro from a USB and see if it work any differently. Also try a boot disc without the hard drive disconnected just to see if that changes anything.

Hi all,

I just ordered a Dell PowerEdge Server with 2 IDE hard drives set up in a RAID-1 configuration with a CERC IDE RAID controller (ATA 100/4 channel).

This is my first experience with RAID, so how do I know if this configuration is working? Is there a way, without opening the case and hooking up the individual drives separately, to verify that the data is being mirrored onto both drives? If not, then how would you tell when a drive failed?

When I open up windows explorer, it only shows my 2 partitions (C & D), which is what I expected to see. But I still assumed there'd be a way to verify data on both drives.

Thanks,
Richard

Do you have a Win98 bootable floppy? Did either of the druves have 98 on them before? If you have a floppy you probably have to install Windows from it.
Sorry! Reread your post...you don't have a floppy. Suggest reconfiguring, temporarily, so you can boot with floppy. Install OS, then configure the way you want to.

When you remove the card, is anything attached to the card? If you have nothing attached and remove the card, now the system boots fine. I would say a bad card; something died on it. If there is a drive attached to the card, try booting with the drive disconnected completely from the card.

Hi,
If you look under drive properties tab for the LG in the Computer windows and the devices name and model number and type are listed then the SATA card is identifying the LG drive correctly. So the drive will play CD's? Will it do anything when you put a DVD in? Does the drive try to read it? Try a program like VLC VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework! This will play CD's, DVD's and Blu Ray discs. It is possible the LG drive is just plain DEAD ON ARRIVAL and does not work. Your SATA card will be fine with any SATA device as long as you don't try to boot from them without your main bios giving you the option as add in card.

It used to work perfectly and now I am unable to control the volume level...period. Nothing.

This is getting really annoying. I have performed several shut-downs and when the OS load is fresh, I can control the volume through the speaker icon. Once I touch the volume controls on the mouse(logitech mediaplay) the volume reduces to aero. I can't even get it to go up again but the for speaker icon and then it goes back to zero!! UGH!!

I don't want to have to use software that I don't need. I'm referring to Intel's Rapid Storage Technology (RST). This is because it wouldn't be compatible if I wasn't using a Windows OS.

How would I then verify my RAID 1 configuration is working? Keeping in mind that RAID setup is done via BIOS.

You could take a look at Disk Management to see if there is only one drive instead of two. You can open it by right clicking the start button, and then clicking Disk Management.

When you install windows on a RAID you would normally have to give in the RAID drivers from the motherboard CD to be able to see your Drive. Which would show up as one single drive, which you can partition and install to. If you did this then windows is most probably installed.

If it will not boot then you will probably have to install the RAID drivers while Windows is running

A:FN Keys Volume Not working

I'm not sure if this will help (or perhaps at least explain), but I found this on the Sony web site: View Document 0 170586639.

Since it is new, I'd contact Sony for assistance at: Sony eSupport - Electronics - Contact Support. I'd give you a more specific site, but you didn't provide the full model number so I can't go any further. They should be more than happy to assist you especially since it is so new.

I hope this helps and, if necessary, that they can help you. I'd try to find out more myself, but again without the model number (and there seem to be hundreds), I can't locate your specific system to check it out and see if there are any instruction manuals or troubleshooting guides or helpful articles or anything. I'm sure they'll help you, but if you end up posting back here, please include the full model number in your post.

Good luck!

I recently bought a  Dell Inspiron I3168, upgraded the ram to 8 GB. The volume down button on the side is not working. I have reinstalled the Quickset driver and done a reset with no luck. Any possible solutions?

Thanks

I just bought this Laptop for the wife. HP G60-445DX Notebook PC. The volume keys don't work. Does any one have a suggestion or a fix for this problem. It's brand spanking new with all updates. I contacted HP and they told me that I have to press the fn key and the up/down keys at the same time to activate them. It doesn't work. If I hold down the fn key and press either up/down key then they work. Big pain in the butt, can some one help. thanks.

Are you sayung that it is a pain to hit the Fn and Pgdwn to enter a Volume lic key. If it is a legit key you could call Ms and ask for a diffrent key.

The icon on my taskbar is not function. Okay, when I change the volume through my keyboard it works fine. I can still get into Sound Options (Playback/Recording/Sounds/Communications) but Volume Control, Volume Mixer, and Volume Control Options won't load. Nor will they load through Control Panel.

Strange, they were working earlier today.

I'm using Windows 7 SP1

A:Volume control not working?

Since this is a recent problem, use the System Restore and restore back to a date when it did work. Usually this will take care of new problems. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. System Restore will not delete any user date or e-mails.

When I click on my taskbar volume control, it doesn't pop up and it is in the mute condition. I have poked around the computer, but am unable to do anything about the problem. I just downloaded a major Vista upgrade (about 165MB) hoping that the problem would go away, but . . . to no avail. The computer is a fairly new HP table top unit. Can anyone help?

Since I wrote the above, I noticed that when I right click on the volume control, I am unable to open the Volume Mixer . . . must be related. lol

A:Volume control not working

have you tried to unmute form control panel, sound icon, click on playback and click on your speakers and then the properties button at the bottom - then click on the Levels tab and you can click on the speaker to mute and unmute
see if this helps

haven't had to do this before, but if you go to the advanced tab there is a restore default button

ello,

I recently decided to format my hard drives and reload windows xp pro. in preparation for this i was getting the files i wanted to save together and was about to back them up. before i could back them up my friend decided to flash my bios. after the flash my pc doesn't boot up. it can't find the SATA RAID drives i have in it.

I moved around the bios a little bit to see what the settings are and changed a few to see if i could get it working but no joy. i was able to get the sata hard drives to show up but it still doesn't boot to them.

Phoenix - AwardBIOS CMOS Setup Utility is what i am using. i am hoping that i just need some settings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:SATA RAID not working after bios flash!!!

With friends like that you don't need enemies , is it a custom built PC or an OEM like Dell or HP??

Normally settings are preserved during a bios flash, but check to be sure Raid is enabled in the bios.

Raid 0 or 1?

A quick update:

I just turned off auto-restarting after a BSOD and then setup the RAID again just as before, choosing NOT to clear disk data. This time I actually just get missing NTLDR. ARG. I rebuilt the array, and this time I get the BSOD which gives little detail except the code 0x0000007B. Which MS says could be bad drivers or a boot sector virus (makes sense huh?).

Hey guys, I have a new ASUS K60IJ laptop. I'm having some problems with the fn + f10 - f12 keys. Those govern speaker mute, volume down and volume up, respectively. They simply don't work. The fn shortcuts for brightness (f5 and f6) and "display switch" (f8) work, just not the ones that control and mute the volume. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue? Thanks!

Hi, I have a pair of old Yamaha speakers and an SB Live Value sound card and I'm running XP. The speakers have a volume control and a headphone jack on them. Up until recently they were working fine but then my children were playing around on the PC and now neither the volume control on the speaker nor the headphone jack works (if I plug in the headphones the sound continues to be played through the speakers).

I've searched through the archives but haven't spotted anyone who has had a similar problem and since I've been banging my head against the wall for a couple of weeks I'd really appreciate some help.
 

A:Speaker volume control not working

If I read your post correctly, you are still getting sound from the speakers, right? It kind of sounds like the speaker controls and the headphone jack have been damaged somehow. Do you have another set of speakers you can test with or another PC to try these speakers on?

Product: F9H96UAR#ABAModel: 15-g012dx I have had this laptop for about a year and a half and have had issues with the brightness buttons not working before.  Usually I could get them working again by restarting my laptop.   Now my brightness and volume buttons won't work at all even after I restart.  I can get the brightness and volume to change in settings and by clicking the volume button on the bottom right corner of the screen, but pressing the f buttons does nothing.  The only f button that seems to be working is f1 (?).  I have looked on a bunch of forums and there is a wealth of advice regarding installing drivers, rebooting, etc., but many of the links they suggest are out of date and lead nowhere.  Can anyone help me with this?
