Sounds like this may be a driver glitch. Try uninstalling the drivers for the quick play buttons from the device manager, then reboot. It will find the hardware an reinstall the drivers. If the problem persists, then disable the buttons either in the system bios or the device profile in the device manager.

Why are my volume buttons not working?


The drivers are missing for those controls. May need to reload the drivers via Dell website. I believe the intended So for the 1525 is Vista. Running windows 7 may not provide all the drivers.

How do i turn on the wireless card to my acer aspire 6930-6760


The media control buttons give access to volume control, skip, pause/play, and stop. The buttons are capacitive, and glow blue when the laptop is on. To the right of the media control buttons are four buttons that perform programmable actions. By default, they function as wireless on/off, launch Internet, launch Bluetooth manager, and launch Acer Arcade. Also, in the top right corner is a button which turns virtual surround sound on or off.

Teac V7010 posted to me but stop and play buttons


Sometimes you can repair these type of connected strips by melting them back together or on with a soldering iron. Do it in a well ventalated room with a mask and goggles, to prevent the plastic fumes going in your eyes.
The only other way is strong superglue.
You could phone the maker if they still have the parts. But I wouldn't hold out much hope if the model is over 3 to 5 years or more old. Even then it might be cheaper to get the same model off E-Bay.

Media control buttons doesn't work???


Actually many laptops & their media are designed only for working with XP or previous versions. So its not neccessary that they work good with Vista also. Its true that they should be compatible with Vista but not very necessary. So you may need to change your OS again to access all functionality.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.
