    The problem is exactly as described. The solution already provided is not the answer as I have already tried all that was suggested without any success.

After much searching on the internet I have found there are several causes of this problem. They are all related to the Human Interface Device service. In my case I found that this service was disabled in the Windows services. Changing this to automatic and restarting the computer resolved the problem. I believe in other cases the registry entry in local machine that points to the HID dll may be corrupted or non existant.

Sorry I do not have the correct location in local machine or what the entry should be.

Windows only recognizes the standard keys on a keyboard. Special-function keys need to have appropriate driver software installed to make them work. If you bought this keyboard as a replacement, there should be a CD included with the required drivers. If this is the keyboard that came with a retail computer system, the drivers would already have been installed.

Most manufacturers include a directory somewhere on the hard drive with any special drivers so you can reinstall them if needed. Or you may have gotten one or more CDs with your system, and the drivers will be on those. You can also find the drivers at the manufacturer's website in their "support" or "download" section. This is usually the best way to get the drivers anyway, since you will get the most recent versions with any updates. Installing the drivers once you have them is normally a simple matter of running the installation program.

How do I fix the volume on a lg47lg50 tv the volume gos up to 100 by itself and the remote won't work


It is due to a fault at its main board. The electronic volume control section circuit at it should troubleshoot. This is a skilled work, and not an easy repairable one for any normal user. Contact any service technician.
Before contacting any one; make sure that the remote control you have works perfectly. Check it and ma sure. Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.

That could be one of two things first being the front keyboard and possibly a main board. However the keyboard is usually the cause of those two issues.

Dv7-1023cl problems with quick touch buttons


You don't need to activate the drivers. if you reinstalled them then they are there and should be working.

There should be alternate methods to using the quick touch keys, such as using the conventional methods.

For example to change your volume, just click on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume. Or click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound and adjust the volume. Also click Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment and see if there is a volume control there. Also normally you can adjust the volume by keystrokes. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key near the bottom left portion of the keyboard and press the volume keys (there should be 3 volume keys, volume up, volume down and volume mute).

As for the Wireless there is a switch on the side or in the front of the laptop that controls the wireless. Also there are keystrokes that can toggle it off or on once the wireless switch is on. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the icon of a wireless signal )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with a wireless signal )))).

My volume scroll does not work on hp laptop? not had it long, can anyone help>


If you are talking about the quick volume buttons above the keyboard then it could be two things. first the cable that goes from the mother board to the control is bad or the volume control part under the plastic has gone bad. If it is any of these then the buttons should have stopped lighting up blue. If they have stayed lit up then it is a software problem.

Dell wireless keyboard - one button controls at top not working


Hi,
You will probably need to set up those keys. If you have an installation disc that came with the keyboard try to install the software.
If you don't try going to control panel and then go to keyboards to see whether you can modify the keyboard settings.

Go to Control Panel and open 'Add/Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features' depending on the OS you have. Remove HP Quick Launch Buttons. Restart your PC. Go to C:\SWSETUP and install the HP Quick Launch Buttons software. If the installation prompts for a restart, do it and then try using the buttons.
If you still have problems, report back.

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?

Volume buttons and mute/unmute buttons don't work


First open the Control Panel -> Keyboard Layout. Look for the dropdown list for different keyboard models. Scroll to the Dell models and try e.g. the Dell Mulimedia USB Keyboard layout. Stop the GUI with Ctl+Alt+Return, login again and maybe your multimedia buttons will work now.
and for more info contact http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
If there is no keyboard layout that fits your needs, you may download the programs keytouch and keytouch editor, which are very helpful creating your own layout.

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.
