Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 4000 Keyboard/Mouse
Volume control on keyboard does not work (mute does)
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 doesnt, 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.

My problem is still unresolved! Your solution is dated Apr 18, 2008 my question is dated May 3 2008... so you are a clairvoyant? .... read my question first: I say "I've the same problem. Unistalling the software or re-installing the OS is futile".
Have a nice day.
