Normal 0 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

Acertravelmate4000 got it used,don,t know how to turn off mute,turn on or up volume


The volume may be muted. In Windows, look at the volume
control (speaker) icon on the taskbar. If it is crossed-out, click on
the icon and deselect the Mute option.
The speakers may be turned off. Press Fn-F8 to turn the speakers
on (this hot key also turns the speakers off).
The volume level may be too low. In Windows, look at the volume
control icon on the taskbar.
Fn-? Volume up Increases the sound volume. Fn-? Volume down Decreases the sound volume.

If this helps u let me know
regards

Sound is off. kids playing on it. have hit every sound button on keyboard. is there a mute button? Thanks


Go to: Control Panel > Sound and then a box will pop up. Click on Playback tab and make sure your correct speaker output is selected as the default. Then click Apply button. Then OK. Also, to check your mute/volume button click the speaker icon on your task bar (its next to the little clock in the bottom right of your screen. You might have to click a little arrow that looks like this < to see it. Then just turn up the volme. Also, make sure the speaker cables are plugged in and the power cord as well if they are external speakers.

Everything ok with this keyboard except one thing. I can't manage the volume with the keyboard.


Are you trying the volume control at the media controls? See here.

Also check to see that your Operating system volume control is on and up.

good luck.

Wireless Multimedia keyboard volume keys won't work.


Go to start and run then type services.msc or if using windows 7 just go to start and type services.msc in the search box. Once open find the service "Human Interface Device Access". Change it from manual to automatic and make sure that it is started.

MS wireless laser keyboard 5000


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;)
