volume buttons not working

Hi, I have just noticed that the volume buttons on my touchsmart 600-1220 are not working. They worked from new but i have not checked them since. They work ok for adjusting the brightness/contrast etc. Also the fn key on the keyboard for adjusting the brightness up and down and switching off the monitor don't work. All these functions work ok on the desktop.

I have re-installed the sound driver but no luck. pls help

Re: volume buttons not working

It's not related to the audio drivers, it's part of the Keyboard and buttons application, check that for updates.

Re: volume buttons not working

Thanks fo the reply.

The volume up/down button on the keyboard works.

I'm not sure where to find the specific driver. Went on hp website but cannot find a update for keyboard driver.

Took out the batteries and re-installed them still the same.

Can it be conflicting with an update i did recently?. I have had the pc for a month now and these two functions worked ok from new.

If you did an OSD and Buttons update from Microsoft, not HP, there's a good chance that broke the OSD/Keyboard/button functions

Re: volume buttons not working

hi,

Problem solved!!!

After much thought and stress , i realised what it was.

Some time ago my computer whizz brother disabled some start-up items in msconfig to make the pc start up faster.

In start-up there are a few hp programs-HP desktop- FastUserSwtch-hpsysdrv- etc etc- which he disabled.

I ticked these items and done a restart , hey presto back to normal !!.

Thanks for your suggestions, I knew it was something i did and not a software conflict or driver problem.

thanks again..mak81
