    Yes the taskbar control is working as usual,but I thought I could use the keyboard one,u are saying that sometimes a driver is required? So thats maybe why its not working...you asked the model of the laptop,it's Compaq Presario CQ60.This is what is written in the monitor.

    Thank u for answering!

    Oh, sorry, you posted this in PC Desktops, not laptops. Since the keyboard is integrated into the laptop, it's probably not a driver issue. I know for my Dell laptop, there is a program that runs called "Dell QuickSet". Without that program running, none of my special/multimedia keys work, including audio controls. You should go to the Compaq support page for your laptop model and see if there is any special software you can download.

    Can you control the audio from the taskbar? Usually keyboards with multimedia controls require a special driver to be installed, what is the manufacturer and model of your keyboard?

Download and install the control program for the keyboard from the manufacturer's website. Also, there is a "startup" executable that must be running in order for the "helper" program to work - if you've done a registry cleanup or tweaked your startup with msconfig or another utility, it may have disabled it.

The keyboard was working fine and all of a sudden stopped making sounds. I must have pressed a button.


I've never heard of a keyboard making sounds. I have heard of key presses making sounds. In the control panel under keyboard there may be a setting. The setting may also be under sound or audio (depends on the operating system).

The sound button on my keyboard doesn't work


Well, reinstalling the drivers would have been my first bet...If you use volume control on your keyboard a lot, maybe pop off the key and check under for dirt/grime?

Then go to control panel and open Keyboard...and increase the repeat and delay rate. If all these doesnt work...it means it might be a hardware problem
