Hello, all others hotkeys work(volume, light the keyboard, etc) but the brightness change button dont work at all ! i tryied to install graphic card from drivers and nothing changedhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Brightness-Buttons-dont-work-HP-Envy-n010dx/td-p/5640412
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
I've just acquired this Lenovo G40-70, it came with Linux so I installed Windows 7 Professional 64bits and downloaded all the drivers from the support page for my computer, I've got everything working except for this three buttons: Brightness+/- , and the Airplane button .... what should I do? I've reinstalled all the drivers from your website, and also the last graphics software from intel ... nothing works ...

So recently I went to my laptop and I noticed the brightness was low. So I tried to turn it up. It failed.
I tried turning up the brightness through the Control Panel (Create a Power Plan) and it worked. How can I fix the buttons to work?
Huh, it got fixed magically. I had a battery under my laptop.
So strange how computers can sometimes be, huh?
I have a hp Envy 15 notebook PC windows 10. my screen brightness control button (F2,F3) don't work now they use to, and I am unable to alter them with the control panel.
Hi, Can you post back with the full Model No. and Product No. of your notebook - you can usually get this by holding down the fn key and pressing esc, otherwise see Here for a guide on locating this information. Regards, DP-Khttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/my-screen-brightness-control-buttons-don-t-work/td-p/5812250
My laptop is a Packard Bell Easynote TS13HR, but it has recently had an acer motherboard installed(could this be the problem?). I've come to notice when i hold Fn and and press an F key recently it hasn't worked, or it has had an effect from what it is supposed to. Also there are some custom buttons that have no effect at all ( volume up, volume down, volume mute etc. )
Fn + F3 is supposed to turn my wireless off, but it actually puts my laptop to sleep
Fn + F5 is supposed to turn my display off, but it switches to an external display.
Fn + F6 is supposed to turn my touchpad off, but it turns my display off.
any ideas on how to fix this are greatly appreciated.
i guess having a motherboard in my laptop other than the original is what is causing this, is there any way to change what the fn and f buttons do, or do i need to put the right motherboard in my system?
my buddy was trying to isntall windows xp, but when he got to the part where it asks something like press f8 to install xp, press esc of f3 to quit. he presses f8 but nothing happens. does anyone have a solution to this?
Have your buddy go into his BIOS settings and set his CDROM/DVDROM as his first boot device. If he has a bootable CD version of XP, it should autorun when he restarts his machine.
Alright so here it goes, I spilled ranch on my keyboard(a friend did).
This is a laptop keyboard, the keys L N and K didnt work before. So i assume it was a bad keyboard, i order a online keyboard and now this one the keys ZX 1 dont work. So is this a keyboard hardware issue? Did i just get another bad one ? Should i get another keyboard and retry or can something else cause keys to not work
Well, not sure I can help other than to say that like you I would have assumed that the damage was confined entirely to the KB and replacing it should have gone smoothly (Not like you spilled a coke or something that would have leaked al over internally).
Probably the think to do is return the new one as defective and ask for another... If that also doesn't work then it would almost have to be the computer itself...
Did the contamination get anywhere near the KB cable connector?
I phoned up the support people, they said that they want me to do a full system recovery, (i can not do this...)
My problem is, I use the touchpad/USB mouse on and off, depending where i am.
Last night i was at my desk, and I plugged in my mouse, When i moved to somewhere comfortable, I unplugged my mouse, and now my touchpad's buttons (left and right) dont work, well they do, but they work as the scroll button (open things in tabs ect)
What can i do to fix this problem? I was told that i need to do a full system recovery to see if its a hardware problem. This has never happened before.
The laptop is a Compaq Presario C700 and I have had it since december.
I can backup by documents, but I need my software... (in total, easily ?5000, but no serials(got serials over phone), so i cant get new ones...)
windows7 64 bit. My blue back and forward buttons don?t work in My Documents. Remain greyed out. For example when I am in: Computer > d:\ > My Documents > photography > Nikon > D100 can?t go back to My Documents with the back arrow. Have to use the red cross in top right of screen. After visiting several pages have to press this red cross maybe 20 times to get back to the start. Who helps me out ?

Hello @Leah_anais and @sirdoom34 , Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand you're having issues using the touchpad on your ENVY notebooks. Please take the time to go through the following document for touchpad issues: Using and Troubleshooting the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 8). Make sure the touchpad is up to date with the following drivers: Synaptics TouchPad Driver. If neither of those work please contact HP Phone Support for service options. You can contact HP Technical Support at 1-800-474-6836 in North America. For all other regions click here.Thanks!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-Envy-m6-n010dx-Touch-Pad-Issues/td-p/4460334

I'm having problems with the multimedia buttons on my laptop. They were working fine but they suddenly stopped working after a system reboot.
Don't know what to do, please help!
What system do you use?
If you use Win XP then you should install the Common Modules and Controls utility.
Both can be found on the Toshiba European driver page in Archive area
If you use Vista you should install VAP (Value Added Package).
like if im on youtube with the browser open and active then press the volume up botton it wont work but if i click outside of the browser onto the desktop then push the buttons it works fine only when the browser is active and hilighted i guess i would call it that the buttons wont work. can this be fixed?
You could try reinstalling the keyboard driver for a start.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/keyboard-volume-buttons-dont-work-when-in-the-browser-704554.html
I got this laptop a lil over 3 months & i haven't had any issues with it till now for some reasons my quick launch buttons don't work & if i show my desk top icons I can click on them but when they open I don't have any control over them they just sit there & I cant close them or anything & I pretty much have to press ctrl+alt+del to go to start Manager to get control over my laptop i have reformatted my computer still the same issue i don't know what else to do please help me!
Check your system manufacturer's web site for driver updates for the hot-keys.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/solved-quick-launch-buttons-dont-work-388112.html
A few months ago, I had my harddrive changed, as the old one got scratched so wouldnt boot up.
Everything works fine, apart from the multimedia buttons (play, pause etc) to the left of the keyboard.
I assume this is because a driver is now missing. I have tried searching for it but cant find it anywhere.
Can anybody shed any light on how to solve this?
Sorry forgot to mentions the laptop is a Equium A100-147https://forum.toshiba.eu/showthread.php?66856-Equium-A100-147-Multimedia-Buttons-Dont-Work
They dont work when I push them, how do I fix that?
Not the function+F1 sorta quick launch, but the little buttons at the top of the laptop
You could probably just load the utility that lets you use the buttons. What is the exact make and model of your laptop? What OS are you using?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/51732/quick-launch-buttons-dont-work-on-laptop/
Help my left hinge is broken like so many others and I'm out of warranty! I just spent 2 hours on the phone with HP only to discover I will be charged $220!! It's clearly a design error since it's happened to literally hundreds of others with this computer! There needs to be a recall it's not fair to have to pay for something that I've never dropped, etc. I've also read where some have gotten theirs repaired free of charge without being covered under warranty
I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

hello, my computer had a Windows update today, and now the touchscreen (which was fully functional before the update) is not working. it is not the screen, as this happened once before to me and I did a system restore to fix it. I tried a system restor this time, didn't work. I looked in the Device Manager, and there IS NO DRIVER for my touchscreen. how do I reinstall, it is NOT listed in the driver list on the HP website for my product. help!

Hi, I am having some issues regarding my laptop's brightness. Firstly, when I turn my laptop on, the brightness is always on pitch black so I can't see the screen. I have been on to all the settings and put the brightness as max for both when it is plugged into power, and not. And yet each time I switch it on, the brightness isn't on and the screen is completely black. Secondly, my brightness buttons are the wrong way round, so the button I should press to reduce the brightness actually increases it, and the button I should press to increase the brightness actually decreases it.Again I have looked in the settings and can't find anything there to change them - I haven't downloaded or installed anything that should have changed them, I literally use the laptop for microsoft office and the internet.

I can get the brightness and volume to change in settings and by clicking the volume button on the bottom right corner of the screen, but pressing the f buttons does nothing. The only f button that seems to be working is f1 (?).

Hi, Try the following. Download the Intel HD Graphics installer on the following link and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp68001-68500/sp68117.exe When done, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the link below. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73501-74000/sp73543.exe When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, do not restart as prompted, instead open your Downloads folder, right click the Intel Graphics installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation. When this has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery. Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds. Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Start the notebook and let Windows fully load for a few minutes before checking.

The controls (volume, brightness, keyboard brightness, etc) on the F1-F12 buttons are not working.

It is just getting annoying. Please help.
So I have two Dell Inspiron all-in-one rsquo s that we cannot adjust the brightness on via the buttons on the right hand side When the issue appeared on the first PC I thought maybe the buttons were broken and since it was out of warranty I simply dimmed the screen via the Intel graphics adapter settings Fast forward to a few weeks later when another machine same model got all-in-one brightness working. 3030 Inspiron buttons not his with a Crytpo virus and I had to do a clean install and now it too has the same problem I installed all the drivers from Dells site but now I have two computer computers in where the brightness buttons on the right hand side don rsquo t work Everything including the BIOS is up to date but that Inspiron 3030 all-in-one brightness buttons not working. got me wondering hellip Is there anything special that needs to be installed for those buttons to work specifically Typically hardware buttons just work I would call Dell but they are out of warranty by Inspiron 3030 all-in-one brightness buttons not working. a few months

The following set of exes allow you to map custom buttons on laptops to Windows shortcut commands . Currently supported is : to increase and decrease volume/brightness by a single click . Quick brightness change is great for long gaming or development sessions on the pc !
I have been missing that feature badly.
Also sending shortcuts i.e ALT+TAB is supported.
You need your laptop to have the software that can map the button to the exe.
This is donationware so all help is appreciated.
Coming soon also one-button changing the Nvidia color levels, as this is another thing that has been killing me.

Hello! I upgraded about a month ago. My laptop locked me out entirely shortly after the upgrade so I had to take it to be wiped clean. When I got it back everything was in working order with Windows 10 except the top row of keys that control volume, brightness and the ability to pause, rewind and skip songs now solely does the standard system commands of f1-f10 *caret browsing on/of, find in page, etc* Im not sure if they worked the first time I tried to upgrade because I couldn't even log on to my computer after I upgraded the first time so I reformatted. How can I make those keys usable for volume and brightness again? Thank you!
Sounds like your missing the driver for them, what is the make and model of your laptop?
Also try go to start and type 'Check for Updates' this may download them automatically.

So recently I turned on my computer (Acer Aspire V5 122-P) and went to change the brightness. And using the FN keys and changing the brightness returns the same value rather than chaning it. The other FN keys such as Volume +/- and turning adaptars on and off still work. It is just the brightness keys. I would like a fix as I need long battery life and this is causing exsessive battery drain. (I would also prefer not to do anything too dangerous as I use it everyday for College as the unit is still in Warenty) Looking around the internet I am thinking it is a Graphics issue but move this if its in the wrong thread.
This is so frustating
(I have tryied turning it off and on again to no avail)
Have you looked in Control Panel, Power Options for the different settings when using battery or plugged in? Battery settings usually will dim the display and may throttle down the CPU speed to conserve the charge.http://www.eightforums.com/graphic-cards/53467-fn-keys-laptop-respond-but-dont-change-brightness.html

Since the drive still works you might want to give SpinRite a try. This isn't free and will probably run for days before it fixes your problems. I do not see you getting your data back any other way since it is encrypted. Encryption is great for keeping information private, but I've see a whole lot of data lost due to encryption. In the end only you can say how much your data is worth.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/520308/win-7-dont-boot-f8-dont-workgot-error-disk-read-error-press-ctraltdel/

Hello,Having a problem with my laptop keyboard where the hotkey function buttons have suddenly stopped working as they used to. Pressing any of the hot keys results in an f1-12 rather than the previous function of changing volume, toggling keyboard lights and changing brightness etc. This happened around the time of me installing some new drivers for an audio interface so may be related to that. Ive tried going into the BIOS and toggling the hotkey option on and off, and installing hp quick launch software but nothing has worked so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance - C. Hounslowhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Envy-Hot-keys-not-working-eg-brightness-volume-keys/td-p/5758786

Have you used the diagnostics utility to check the keyboard? What do you mean by "Fn + F"? You should be able to control whether or not the Fn key has to be pressed to invoke a Function key by setting the Action key to enable or disable in the BIOS.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Fn-F-buttons-don-t-work/td-p/5700625

Hi. Using a crappy Dell Inspiron B130 w/ Windows XP here. A while ago, a fun little accident left certain keys on my keyboard completely inoperable. I didn't realize this, but the arrow up was one of these. Last night, I had the computer on in the dark and decided to use fn+down to turn down the brightness. Oops. fn+up does nothing to turn it back up.
Edit - cut out my ramblings, I fixed it myself with some adjustments in the BIOS. D'oh!
Have you tried plugging in a usb keyboard and trying the fn+up button combo? Also maybe the on-screen keyboard. I am not sure if they will work but worth a shot.

Hi, Bought a new Lenovo G50-80 , it has AMD radeon R5 M330 graphics card and installed Windows 7 x64 . Brightness control doesn't work. Thought it might be issue with Display driver and hence tried to install AMD VGA driver the installation fails with error as below. "Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat(version 2.0, options QFlags(), depthBufferSize 24 , redBufferSize -1 , greenBufferSize -1 , blueBufferSize -1 , alphaBufferSize 8 , stencilBufferSize8 , sample -1 , swapBehaviour 2 , swapInterval 1 , profile 1) This is most likely caused by not having the necessary graphics drivers installed. Install a driver providing OpenGL 2.0 or higher or, if this is not possible make sure the ANGLE Open GL ES 2.0 emulation libraries (libEGL.dll, libGLESvs.dll and d3dcompiler_*.dll) are available in the application executable's directory or in a location listed in PATH"Please let me know the right path for AMD drivers and how to fix the brightness issue

On some web sites I visit, some of the (what I call) hotspot butons don't seem to work.
What I mean by those are the buttons you click on on the screen to take you to another page - such as on a hotel booking page. eg Enter details, click on the "next" button........but it's just like there's no command behind it. Some of the other similar buttons on the same screen do work.
Tried on another computer, and they do work !!
Both computers fairly new and Vista Home Premium.
It could be... and it could also have to do with IE7's 'phishing filter', or pop-up blocker (which is a good thing).

If possible, try a free online scan at this URL: http://safety.live.comIt will scan for malware, clean your registry, delete your Temp files, and defrag your hard drive.If not, then I'd download an antivirus program and it's updates from the web, put it on a CD and transfer it to the laptop.

My keyboard has function keys (as in, I have to hold down the function key and then press the corresponding f# key) for brightness, volume, sleep, mic mute, and source. Ever since I updated to Windows 10, all but the volume and sleep functions stopped working. There are no drivers available that I'm aware of that are able to fix the problem, and my BIOS is up to date. I'm glad the volume and sleep functions still work, but I'd really like to be able to adjust the brightness with my keyboard instead of having to go to the action center every time.

I believe that you have to install the drivers in a certain order.
Is this true? Or is there way round this?

For me it sounds like you tried to install some applications which are not compatible with this notebook.

OR i will go to power options and change the settings, but now both actions doesn't work. Please help me as it really hurts my eye. Thank you
Welcome to Vista Forums.
I recommend you go to the laptop manufacturer's web site and find the drivers, firmware, and/or software appropriate to your graphics card and your monitor and your version of Vista and download them and update your system with the revised versions. Let's see if that helps. This may also be related to the SFC problem in your other thread - so I will check especially for anything that seems to apply to this issue.
I hope this helps. If not, post back and we'll try something different.
I recently got a new laptop and replaced the preinstalled Windows 8 with Windows 7. Unfortunately, the special options to the function keys (wifi on/off, brightness, change volume, change multiscreen mode, etc.) don't work. Does anybody know of a way to fix that?
you would have to go to the manufacturer of the computer and download the specific to your model, driver software for the laptop.
does holding down the Fn key at the same time not do anything?
Following a Windows update this week (November 2016), I am unable to adjust the screen brightness which also prevents me from duplicating the screen via HDMI cable. I have had this issue before and have successfully resolved it by adjusting the drivers via the Device Manager. On this occasion, my attempts to update / rollback have failed. Please help!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Brightness-hotkeys-do-not-work-after-Windows-update/td-p/5852025
Hey everyone, I'm running a T450s Thinkpad on Win10. I have a very annoying issue; the function key for adjusting screen brightness doesn't work anymore. I guess it got 'broken' by Win10, but anyway, i can get it fixed. Tried installing new drivers for graphics and monitors but nothing helped so far...

Did a clean install of windows 7 on my sony vaio fz21z laptop. Cannot find a solution to get the brightness keys working also found driver for bluetooth that works fine but cannot turn the device on or off. I have been told that it is a separate piece of software but cannot find this. Please can anyone help me.
I've tried a few solutions to get the FN keys working, but found out long ago that they don't work unless you use the original graphics driver, even on Vista.
I've tried a few solutions which requires some of the Sony software to be installed, but none seem to work, but as they aren't that important to me, I'm not too bothered.
The x64 bluetooth driver came from HERE, driver number EP0000154872, and that one will allow you to turn it on and off.
So, I have this problem, since I started up my laptop this morning my windows had some issues: at the beginning a game I frequently played started running at 6 fps(usually it goes at 50),then I couldn't change the brightness, and now I can't activate my Wi-Fi. I tried to restore the windows but it always stops and there a Pop-up saying "couldn't restore windows". What should I do?http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/69366-wifi-brightness-restore-doesnt-work.html
About a week or so ago I noticed that my Firefox back buttons weren t working When you click the Browser's buttons don't work back back button it briefly flashes the previous page on the screen then reloads the page you were on to begin with when you clicked the back button I thought it might be a problem with Firefox so I uninstalled it thinking I would reinstall it So I opened up Google Chrome and tried to download and reinstall Firefox It downloaded fine but then wanted me to choose between continuing as current user or as administrator needs a password If I enter my admin password it won t accept it and says it s wrong If I choose to continue as current user the window closes and it doesn t install Firefox So at this point Chrome was not having Browser's back buttons don't work the same problem so I figured no big deal Browser's back buttons don't work I ll just use Chrome But later that same day it started doing the same thing Also IE is also replicating all the same issues both with the back button and not being able to install FF Yesterday I was looking around my control panel etc thinking maybe a setting somewhere had gotten changed and I noticed that the back buttons in those windows don t work either For example if I click on Control Panel and then click on say Administrative Tools then the back button lights up However if I click on it it tries to go back to the main control panel menu but then returns to Administrative tools I have Avira and Avast neither pick up anything I also have MalWareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware and they aren t helping either Does this sound like it could be some sort of virus malware problem at all I am completely stumped and doing things with no back button is very frustrating ETA I am running Windows Vista ETA I just realized I cannot highlight text with the mouse

So I ve been trying to get into safe mode work buttons beginning during No of startup for a bit now and it still No buttons work during beginning of startup hasn t been working I ve tried smashing F and gently tapping the key but no luck During the very st screen I have two other buttons I can press F for crap I forgot and F for help I ve tried pressing those but they don t give any response The problem I think is that my floppy drive isn t connected It s been like this for quite some time As a result after that very first screen the second screen is a notice that my floppy drive isn t connected Before I reformatted my hard drive I still had the disconnected floppy drive But back then I had the option to go into safe mode AFTER that second screen came up Currently I can only go into safe mode during and from that first screen I think What I believe is that even though I press F or F the new screen doesn t appear because of that floppy drive disconnection notice Is there another way to get into safe mode Someone suggested typing something into the run command box but another person denounced that idea Or should I try to fix my floppy drive and then go for the safe mode I don t know why but back before reformatting I always got this screen with multiple options to startup normally safe mode and others nbsp
Using Access 2010. Designed a form containing 3 command buttons that open either a form or report. One weeee problem: the buttons don't work/don't do anything. The VBA is there, but it doesn't execute.
DB was imported from one designed in Access 2000, and I kept the format .mdb (did not convert to .accdb because client that uses it has both Office 2003 and Office 2010 in their shop, so dB has to be readable by all). Does that have anything to do with the command buttons doing nothing?

No one has any relevant information?
Windows finally bullied me into upgrading to Win10 from Win7 yesterday. Now some things that used to be clickable aren't.
Like this little window, for example.... nothing on it responds to the mouseovers OR clicks.
Uninstall then reinstall Adobe Flash Player?
How do you get to the flash player settings?
Hello,today I reinstalled my HP ProBook 6460b to Win 8.1 64-bit. When I first started the notebook but the touchpad left and right buttons do not work. Even after installing windows updates and drivers - I downloaded all from HP site but some had problems during installation but touchpad driver installed right. When I checked driver manager there were 2 not instaled devices - Unknow device and Base System Driver - I installed that Unknown driver but Base System driver is still missing.On every HP forum I saw, HP experts say to download and install this:http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5045596&swItemId=ob_115197_1&lang=en&cc=u...but it did not solve my problem.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/TouchPad-buttons-on-6460b-do-not-work/td-p/5610879
