LightTouch Bar disconnection instructions to prevent and cure the spontaneous volume adjustment problem.
(refer to photos above please and use scroll bars to view 2 pictures joined together)
I have had the same irritating problem with my Amilo Xi 3670
. The Lightouch bar is too sensitive and activates the sound volume adjustment spontaneously. I have tried every other solution, such as software driver updates etc, but nothing worked.
I have disconnected the cable attached to the LightTouch Bar, and my computer now works faultlessly without any problems. It is a great machine! It’s a pity to have to disable the LightTouch Bar, but the computer works brilliantly now, and the functions on the Bar are available via the keyboard

Unscrew and remove 2 x screws (labled 3 on plastic cover of notebook) from behind top rear end of case on either side (picture 1).2. Carefully and very gently
by hand prise up and unfasten plastic cover over speakers on front of case. It is help in place by internal plastic clips (picture 1 and 2). I started from the left side and proceeded very cautiously in order not to snap the cover.3.
