Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 4000 Keyboard/Mouse
I have a Dell Dimension 8200. I have upgraded my keyboard and mouse combo to a Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 4000. I have installed all the software from the CD with its drivers that came with the new combo and also did a search of the internet for upgrades to those drivers. The installation process also unloaded the old Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combo that came with the computer when I bought it new from Dell. All buttons on the keyboard and all buttons on the mouse work or can be programmed as intended, except the Volume Up or Volume Down buttons at the top left corner of the keyboard (yes, the mute button will mute the volume). I also searched the internet to see if the drivers for the integrated sound card were current. I almost always use Windows Media Player v11 to play music while working onthe computer, but I know that I can not control the volume when watching YouTube either. I am at a loss to figure out how to get the volume buttons to work.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

If you want to check if the software is installed correctly and the keyboard is working fine try using the multimedia key. If you are able to use the multimedia keys for reducing and increasing the volume or mute the sound that means it is working fine.
If you are trying to configure the Favorite keys then you will have to select the buttons from the software and link it to the particular program of your choice.
Open the software application
Select the button that you want to configure
Click on the browse button to select the program of your choice to open with that button.
