Hello.

I rotate the button that controls the volume and i realise that it doesnt follow me!!
I increase the volume and it decreases it and with strange irregular way (very shortly)...
I decrease the volume and even it does it or it does nothing!!!

Can someone help me with that??

What notebook model do you have?

I’ve got a U400 and I’ve got the same volume control.
I read here in the forum about very similar issue and the guy solved this by cleaning the contacts.
There was a dirt and dust which affected the volume control functionality.
The volume control level jumped around….

I don’t know how he did this but I think a compressed air spray should help you.

Have you tried updating the BIOS?

Also try cleaning the volume dial with Electrical Spray or "PCB Cleaner". You can buy it at electronic stores.
Dont use any other type of liquid because you can short out the electronics on the mainboard which may be expensive to replace.
