SOURCE: Wireless Multimedia keyboard volume keys won't work.

Try http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932875. I found that Hidserv.dll was in the incorrect file and copied it to C:\WINDOWS\system32. Volume controls now work correctly.

Why did my enter key suddenly no longer function as to enter, when pressed it brings up a toolbar instead of taking to the next line?


your keyboard utilizes keys F1-F10 as re-programmable function keys.to change your current pofile press the razer lycosa logo+functon key(f1-f10) or you can reset your keyboard to factory default settings by pressing the "Razer Logo" button for 15 seconds while the Razer Lycosa is connected to a powered on computer. NB: ALL CONFIGURATION SETTINGS WILL BE LOST WHEN YOU RESET THE RAZER LYCOSA
TO FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS. ALL CONFIGURATION SETTINGS WILL NEED TO BE
RE-ENTERED OR LOADED FROM THE CONTROL PANEL AFTER THE RAZER LYCOSA IS RESET.

I am trying to find out what the blue symbols on the function keys of my sk 9020 keyboard stand for


The blue keys serve as a secondary function for your volume control, monitor controls and pause play fast forward rewind (in media mode). In order to use the blue keys that are numbered from F1 to F12, you must depress and hold the Fn key that is located at the bottom left side of the keyboard. Here is a way to test it: Open up any file that plays sound for longer than 1 minute (60 seconds). While this file is playing, hold down the Fn key and simultaneously press F8 and listen to the volume get louder or Fn and F7 together and listen to the sound get lower. The picture of the crescent moon F1 will adjust the brightness of your screen. F2 will magnify your screen. F3 will take you to your email. F4 will take you to your internet home page. F6 will mute the volume. F7 will lower the volume. F8 will raise the volume. F9 will rewind your video playing. F10 will stop the video. F11 will pause or play the video. F12 will fast forward the video.

I pressed the volume control buttons @ top of my keyboard, specifically the volume 'off' button; how do I regain my volume control?


Hi,

Kindly let us know more details like the operating system of the computer (Windows XP,Vista) and also the model number of the keyboard.

Generally, the Volume Off or Mute feature can be deactivated by pressing the same button, i.e; the Volume Off button.

Alternately, you can Unmute the volume by clicking the Speaker (volume) icon in the taskbar (lower-right corner of the desktop.) and unchecking the box next to Mute. (See attached image)

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sound wont go on. muted but i have no way of unchecking the mute box


Go to the top of your keyboard. There is a button with a black sideways bell shape icon on it ( a speaker) (the f3 key)...probably four in from the left starting with esc. Toggle that on. It may be on the mute setting now. It should have waves coming out of it when it is unmuted. To the right of that button (two buttons to the right) is the increase volume control button, the (f5) key. Make sure the volume is up! If it is down all the way you will hear nothing and it will be also muted.
I am not sure why if you go into System Preferences (under the Apple icon) and scroll down to Sound and Output, the mute box cannot be unchecked. Perhaps using the function keys to unmute and increase volume on the top of the keyboard will help.

Normal 0 Are you using Windows Vista? If you arethen go to Control Panel.
1. Click on PRINTERS.
2. When the Printer Properties comes up, CLICK on KEY SETTINGS.
3. Then set up the keys by selecting the Volume +/mute key which is the bottom one and click on it.
It will give you another window. Make sure you have a check in the block that says "Displays Volume and Mute Status on screen" Hope that will help some. Bud
Hope this helps. Bud
