Question about Keyboards & Mice
Volume control on keyboard does not work (mute does)
i have tried reinstall the keyboard software but the volume control is still not working..(mute work). is there anything else i could do to fix this?
keyboard : MS Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1
OS : Windows Vista 32bit
Go to the Hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\hidserv\parameters, ServiceDll parameter defines the path to the file hidserv.dll that is needed to make sound+\- key workable. I searched for that file on my computer and found it at C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ , but ServiceDll registry parameter pointed at %SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll, so I changed it's value to %SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\hidserv.dll, rebooted my computer and solved the problem;)

Restart the HID Human Interface Service. To fix this problem yourself, follow these steps:
In Windows Vista or Windows 7, click Start, type services.msc in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
In Windows XP, click Start, click Run, type services.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
