On 32-bit machines: Use the windows search feature to find "hidserv.dll." Once located, copy the file and paste it into the %systemroot%\system32\ directory. Open the "Run" dialog box by keying the windows + R. Type "services.msc" and hit enter. Locate the HID Input Service. Right click and click "start." This should solve the issue!!
If you want to check the drivers just type Device Manager in the start box. Once in Device Manager find your keyboard and click on the "+" sign, then right-click on your keyboard model. You should see update driver, also one of the tabs will tell if it is working properly and if not there is a Troubleshooting box. Also try going into the Control Panel and clicking on your keyboard/mouse. There are settings there alsol
Are you using Windows Vista? If you arethen go to Control Panel. 1. Click on PRINTERS. 2. When the Printer Properties comes up, CLICK on KEY SETTINGS. 3. Then set up the keys by selecting the Volume +/mute key which is the bottom one and click on it. It will give you another window. Make sure you have a check in the block that says "Displays Volume and Mute Status on screen" Hope that will help some. Bud Hope this helps. Bud
Just sorted it. The solution is a touch long winded but it worked for me.
Sorry for the delay in replying but i THINK have have the solution which I got of the Saitek forums.
I have had the same problem with VOLUME controls on two MS keyboards and a logitech, this worked a treat.
So what do you need to do?
FIRSTLY check Control Panel->Administative tools->Component services and click "Services (local)", on the RHS look for "HID input service" under STATUS it should say STARTED, if it DOES im not 100% if this will help but try anyway. If it DOESN'T this should work.
Go to START->RUN and type REGEDIT and navigate your way to the following:
If there is a file called "ServiceDll" delete it (make a copy obviously and stick it on your desktop or something). Right click in the RHS of the page and create a NEW->Expandable String Value.
Call it "ServiceDll" (exactly as typed here without quotes), and make the value read "%SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll" (without quotes). Now exit out of Reg edit and go back to Control Panel->Administative tools->Component services. Next to HID input service right click in the gap under STATUS and press START. Close properly and your volume should now work.
for my Dell multimedia keyboard..I had to run the program at every reboot. but it worked great for 2 years..But recently I had to reinstall windows and now I cant get that or any other program to work for my keyboard volume.
