HP Probook 470 G1 Wireless Button

Hi, I am not entirely sure this is the right subforum to post this on, but here it goes.

 

I have a new Probook 470 G1 with Windows 7 64 bit and I have just installed the wireless driver (after some trouble finding it). Now the wifi works, but the button doesnt (or sometimes it does but does not change color). I noticed there is a driver for that button available for Windows 8, but not for Windows 7. Is there anyway to get a fix for this?

 

Thank you,

 

Jurij

Hi, Jurij:

 

Did you install the hotkey support driver?

 

I don't know if that will take care of the problem but you will need this anyway for the special function keys to work.

Hi Paul, 

 

I did install hotkey support, and the problem seems to persist. It is working more often than not, however, so I guess I will just leave it at that. 

 

Thank you for your help!

You're very welcome, Jurij.

 

I wonder what would happen if you installed the W8 wireless button driver...

 

I have read about this happening on other models too but no solutions that I am aware of.
