Question about Compaq Keyboard
I used to be able to turn volume up and down with dedicated buttons next to the mute button, but they have stopped working. Can still adjust vol on taskbar icon, but prefer to recover button function. How?
You should get it checked is this the Dell inspiron if it is the buttons are touch screen right?so you should be careful with it and dont push it hard

Could be many reasons, but I would first ensure your keyboard's software is functioning and up-to-date. Special buttons like those generally require a software running that can interpret the input and allow you to change the volume.
Easiest way would be to goto hp.com, click on "Help and drivers" and enter your product's number. That should come up with downloads for your product! Just look for something pertaining to "keyboard".

1. Go to Settings - General
2. Tap on Bluetooth, if its Off, tap on it to turn it On.
3. Now put your bluetooth keyboard in pairing mode; usually a dedicated button or by holding the power button down for 5 secs.
4. Once you do this, your keyboard will show up under Devices and say Not Paired.
5. Tap on it, You will be prompted with a message to type a series of numbers on the bluetooth keyboard and then press Enter on the keyboard.
6. The keyboard should up under Devices and say Connected.
-If your keyboard has a volume controls and media player controls (ie play, next, pause, prev, volume, mute), they will all map in the system and work in iPod and Videos and control the system volume. These will also work when your in an app with the music in the background (ie Safari, Pages, Mail, Calendar, any of the native apps)
-The Internet Home button on some keyboards will act like the Home button. My Dell BT Keyboard w/media/internet controls works like this.
Go to Settings - General -Bluetooth, Tap on the arrow on your keyboard in the list. Tap on Forget this Device
