the mute button light doesn't turn on when i turn the mute on and it's supposed to. do you think i need a windows 7 driver for that? There is only vista and xp drivers however. should I get the vista one? which driver would it be?

Welcome to seven forums tseven: Naturally if their is a driver the most current one is the one to use Vista. It could be in any one of the quick launch keyboard drivers. Are you using 32 or 64 bit? Here are the vista drivers You can install it in compatibility mode. click on the setup.exe file> properties>check the run in comp box>select Vista> install

Hello, I was also having this problem with my HP dv41120us and found a solution that works!

The mute icon on my keyboard keeps on making a sound whenever it turns to orange color. Also most of the time, my laptop just freezes and I'm thinking might be something related to my sound device. Most of the suggestion here says you have to reinstall your sound driver. They are correct but you need to install the correct driver else they won't work.

The driver I used is sp41693.exe which can be download from HP (just google it I'm sure you'll find where to download it). Hope that helps. Good luck!
