You need the latest Realtek audio drivers for that colour scheme to work. I have an HP and this problem mystified me when I first bought it. Just go to the realtek website and download the latest driver. In Windows 7 updating via the device manager also does the trick.[/QUOTE]
Thank you for your help, and upon reading this I realized I did go to that website and was a litte confused on where to go, so I pressed on the hd audio codecs and downloaded the first one. Its still in my computer right now. I dont know if thats the right one or not. Could you explain the differences or something please? All other buttons that are supposed to turn colors work like caps lock still turns blue and my mouse pad deactivate button turns orange when I press it so I am really confused as to why the mute button wont. I tried calling technical support but I do not have an extended warranty so as usual it was......"however this, and however that." Thank you. Oh yea, I also tried the whole device manager thing like you suggested but I could not find any driver from realtek so I pressed the update button and it only had the three im missing under other devices but I cant find the correct one for that anyways. But my point is I dont think its there so I cannot update it through that unless its called something different.
