    I tried a clean install to no avail. Because i had plugged in my old keyboard to type when re-installing, i tried the volume keys on that to find the software worked with that keyboard (Odd considering its a Sweex product but ok). Meaning that yes it the keyboard at fault :( meaning ill have to take it back at the weekend and get a replacement.

If the volume controls do not work inspite of reinstalling the software, then most likely your keyboard is defective and will need to be replaced.

You could try a clean install as a last resort.

For Vista:

Hope that helps!

Why are you posting product keys? If other people see it and use it, MS will render it null. Never publish your MS keys, they are YOUR license to operate your software.

2-Press the reset button on the "control module" , "transceiver"or whatever the thing that plugs into the back of your computer is called.
3-Change the batteries in the keyboard. Then reset them, again.
4-Don't disregard the fact that the keyboard may have gone bad.
