[SOLVED] Fn + F# sound related buttons aren't working anymore

Q: [SOLVED] Fn + F# sound related buttons aren't working anymore

I recently upgraded from XP to Windows 7

When i had XP i could press "Fn + F3" to lower my sound volume, "Fn + F4" to raise my sound volume and "Fn + F10" to completely mute my computer.
So, all the sound related buttons.

When i formatted my computer and got Windows 7 on it. These buttons dont work anymore.
I can still press "Fn + F6" to lower the screen light, and "Fn + F7" to raise it.

Can anyone help me?
Im guessing its related to a driver or something..

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.)

A: [SOLVED] Fn + F# sound related buttons aren't working anymore

I have exactly the same problem.. I use Packard-Bell MX65 and can't use almost all the the hot keys when i set up Windows 7 Ultimate x64..

And I can use brightness down and up with fn+f6 and fn+f7 like you.. But no blue screen appears while i'm doing that like I was doing it in Xp.. Fn+F11 also works that turns off the screen.

I thought it's related to the driver ATK0100 ACPI Utility and set up a lot of that driver.. But still it doesn't work.. I hope someone can help us Kasp.

A:Things aren't working anymore

 If this happened to me, I'd restore from my last good full system backup.  If you don't have one, I'd consider this a learning experience.  Then save any data you don't want to lose, and try System Restore.  If that doesn't help,
restore your system to factory settings, and reload your software.
 
 Good luck.

Hi, My TouchPad buttons are not working anymore. I don't know if the problem is a hardware failure or that the buttons maybe have been disabled by mistake.I have checked the UltraNav settings in the control panel as reset the values to default without any luck.Furthermore I have checked the bios settings which were set to the default values. I'm not using a mouse or any other pointers. Does any one have any suggestion before I return the T410 to the dealer for repair. The T410 is 2 weeks 'old'.

Previously, we could get the sound to work on our Bose speakers for our computer but no sound would come from the TV when we connected it to the PC with and HDMI cable. But now overnight, it's swapped; we can now get sound on the TV when we're using the HDMI cable but no sound is coming through on the speakers when we just want to watch/listen to thing on the PC.

So, I had an old out of date sound card for my PC, and I finally got a new one. After I got this new one my sound worked, and my microphone also worked, for my headset. Today I decided to move my computer into the basement for my own use, and once I get down there I connect everything and it is all good, until I realize my sound isn't working. This is the same problem that happened with my old sound card. I was using it just fine, and unplugged it, 10 minutes later, it stopped working... any suggestions?

Thanks,
Glurft

A:Sound isn't working anymore...

Go back over your speaker connections and also make sure the speakers are plugged into the AC power. Try it with a headphone and see if it works. Usually, moving a PC to a different area, it turns out to be a connection problem.

Phone model: Toshiba DKT3214-SDL

Tried a google search, no luck =/
 

A:Solved: Toshiba Phone Buttons Not Working

Solved. Receptionist found a loose cord coming from the headset. I thought it might be the headset considering she is the only one who has one X_X

While in IE the errow buttons have stopped working, I have to use the slider bar to move up, down and sideways.
In other applications they work ok.

Where am I missing the control?

Hi,

IE 7 is not working anymore. I get the following error message: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. I'm not sure but I may be this Tuesday's Microsoft updates/patches that are causing the problem or maybe not. Anyone experience this problem after downloading this Tuesday's updates. I get the error message with every web site. I can't load any web sites. Firefox works fine.

Thanks for any responses.

Hi, i returned a Dell Studio 16 for another Dell Studio 16 with some lighter configurations. One thing I didn't expect to go missing was the ability to "middle click" and open firefox links in new tabs by pressing both mouse buttons simultaneously.

When i went to Dell's website to update the driver, i was informed via a pop-up that the driver i already have was newer than the one i was trying to update with. so i didnt "update" the driver. The device says "Synaptics TouchPad V7.2 on PS/2 Port" and the Driver Version is 14.0.3.0. I am running Win7 64bit. Thanks.

Hi,

I really need some help please, as i have never come across this problem before.

Approx about a week ago for some reason my flash drives and ipod are not correctly recognised all of a sudden through the USB connection.

When I plug them in, windows Xp makes the noise that the devices have been plugged in...but for example my flash drive does not come up with autoplay anymore, and is not seen in My Computer.

I checked the drives via computer management in device manager and my flash drives and Ipod are displayed there, but are not in disk management. Also when I safely remove the hardware they are listed there also, but I have no access to them...PLEASE HELP! they have been working for years and all of sudden just stopped!

Is this a windows issue?

thanks in advance

Hope to hear from yo soon!

So, I just wanted to burn a CD, and I noticed that the light on my DVD-burner is not on, and I couldn't open the tray. So, I checked if the power cord was disconnected. Was not. I thought to uninstall it and reinstall, but the first thing to catch my attention in device manager was that there was an error with, under SCSI and RAID controllers: "AP5NSJ1Z IDE controller"
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

So I reinstalled it. (By just uninstalling it thru device manager, and then add hardware, but it appeared just the way it was. I also don't seem to be able to use my IDE HDDs.

I have an MP830 Canon scanner.. typically when you hit the scan to PDF (duplex or otherwise) option on the unit.. Vista (x64) will then pop up the scanning interface and save the pdf to the harddrive (based on the settings that are stored in mp navigator v2.2.. which still look fine)..

I cant get this to work anymore..

It will work fine if i first launch MP Navigator..

But upon pressing the hard button on the printer, i just get the vista wait cursor for a half second.. then nothing.

I've tried reinstalling mp navigator and the printer driver to no avail..

Anyone have any thoughts?

I'm thinking it may have something to do with missing registry keys for launching the app, but i forget where these are stored..



I also suddenly cant even scan from MPNavigator itself.. i get "scan failed".. my scanner driver is installed as Canon MP830 right now.. (I've turned off the printer, removed everything, registry included, then reinstalled twice now with no luck).

Your video card is extremely old it's likely you can't have more then two displays hooked up to it. I dobut your going to find a solution that will let you use 3 monitors if that's what your doing.

davidspetservices,
Try pressing Fn and escape together and then try the sound buttons and see if they work now. You can also try pressing Fn and F1, F2 and F3 together.
You can also go into the BIOS, hold shift while clicking restart and choose the BIOS.  Under POST behavior look for Fn options.  You can enable Fn and escape as a toggle by checking Fn Lock.  Of leave it unchecked and make sure that Lock Mode Disable/standard is selected should work as media keys.
I will shoot you a friendship request in case you continue to have difficulties.

So I have a laptop which is an Hp probook in which my webcam isn't working. It happened like 2 months ago. I started to check for every solution but nothing worked, then I bought a new webcam so that maybe it works but it also didn't work. I checked the device manager and it says that the device is working properly for both of the webcams but when I check it with the hp camera it tells me that the camera is either used by another software or is not connected. it also doesn't work on other stuff like skype and fb and others. Can somebody help me please.

You may need to restore the laptop to a factory condition by using the HP restore feature...

Hey Gang I m using a store brand of DVDRW I purchased them several months ago Recently I recorded some movies on to several of them At the time they worked Disks Aren't Working DVD-R fine Today I tried them again on my DVD-R Disks Aren't Working PC DVD-R Disks Aren't Working DVDRW and they didn t show up I cleaned them and they showed up as a mpg that didnt play They should be VOB files Right now I get the error saying quot E is not accessible Incorrect function quot I then put them in my TV-DVD player and I got a message that no disk was found Is there anything I can do to restore these files Not all the disks have this problem It seems to happen with the disks I recorded in the last couple of days I used Nero to record them I flashed my hardware recently to accomodate the newer disks When this started happening I flashed them again downward Still no joy I hear some kind of weird sound coming out of the DVD player when I tried to play them I to sounds like it is trying to grab hold of something but having no luck nbsp

A:DVD-R Disks Aren't Working

I'm using a store brand of DVDRW.Click to expand...

Always buy quality media. Store brands usually aren't. Also, DVDRW media, isn't very reliable. Use DVD-R as you listed in the title of the thread. You can try this, but I don't think it's gonna fix your problem. I think your problem is the media you used.

Go into your Device Manager, and find your drive. Right click on it, and choose "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install new a driver for you.

I have tried to tell people that this is what happens when you use Memorex, Khypermedia, and most store brands of media (mostly any media made in Taiwan. Verbatim is the exception). They record ok, and look ok the first time or two you watch them. But when you go back, to watch them again, they may be unwatchable. When buying blank dvds, look on the package for "Made In Japan". It's usually near the bar code. That's not saying you'll never have problems. But you'll have a lot less problems associated with bad media. Sony, Maxell,and Fuji, are good brands, if you get the ones "Made In Japan" (MIJ). MIJ Fuji discs are getting very hard to find though. Verbatim is the only Taiwan made (MIT) media, you should consider.

If the reinstall of the hardware, through the device manager works, I'd copy your discs over to better media, while you can. If it doesn't, I don't think there's much you can do to save what you've burned. I think most software used to encode and burn dvds, puts the files in a folder, on your hard drive. You may find the files for one burned dvd. If you used the same software to do all the dvds, it uses the same folder and overwrites what's in it, each time you do another dvd. That's why I say you might find files for one dvd you burned.
Good luck!

Oy.

I have an ADC (or AOC, can't read the font) monitor with built in speakers. Today, they have suddenly stopped working. I checked all the sound controls, made sure everything was plugged in, and even restarted a few times. I also fiddled around with everything in between.

And yet, I still get no sound. I've learned that while im listening to music, if I turn my monitor off, I can catch a quick millisecond of sound from the speakers. The same also happens if I turn my monitor on, so I'm pretty sure nothing's truly broken. In any case, I'd reaaaally like some help on this problem, pleeease.

Yesterday, I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. All went good, and I'm fully satisfied with Windows 10, but when I called a friend on Skype, I couldn't hear him at all. Not in my headphones. I searched on Google and saw on a lot of forums that if I unninstal that "VIA HD Audio (Win 10) it will fix my problem, but it didn't.[/B] They're still not working, even after I updated the driver back. I also installed Realtek HD Audio driver, after seeing on other forum, but it still didn't work at all. When I click on the speaker icon, go to playback devices, it's not showing headphones, but only speakers. Do you guys know what I can do ? Do you got any idea? I don't want to go back to Windows 7 just because of this.

I have W7 Home Premium and my desktop icons aren't working. I have to reboot to get them to work I use Microsoft Essentials for Virus Protection not Norton.

Any assistance in solving this problem appreciated thanks Dorothy

A:Desktop Icons Aren't Working :(

Did you just install Windows 7? Or, are these icons that have not been used for quite sometime? Try running this Fix It tool from Microsoft. It is used to fix problems with desktop icons, shortcuts, and Windows Update Errors - Common system maintenance tasks. Let us know what happens.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Cassandra

I have Logitech Z506 surround sound speakers for my pc. They worked fine until I put together a new build. Now, only my rear speakers put out sound. I've tested them and configured them properly, but still no good. Anybody know a fix?

Hello all and and as a disclaimer please excuse any and all of my ignorance, I am not at all very good with computers, it even took me a minute to figure out my OS lol! but i have a serious problem: My USB drivers are no longer reading my phones and other devices the message i get is "USB Device Not Recognized", When i click the message and go through the troubleshoot it gets no where. It's like my computer doesn't even realize that the devices and drivers are malfunctioning, also i don't know if it is related but it seems like files, apps and folders are constantly being deleted without my consent and no one else has access to my pc. i suspect foul play hidden in my system. Any help would be very appreciated. thank you so much everyone!

A:USB Drivers aren't working for my devices.

Welcome to the forums!

My buddy Kyle recently (actually yesterday) go a new computer that came installed with Vista. He downgraded to XP and now he can't get on the internet or anything, a bunch of drivers aren't working.

Fix? Downgrading is possible, I've seen it done before but I don't remember what to do.
Thanks,
Drew

ps:
I am also planning to do this on my laptop with vista, and I want to do it without all the driver issues.

How's it goin,
I seem to have a problem with games that i put on my laptop (Acer Aspire 3680, 64mb graphics card). They all install correctly but when I play 'Lord of the Rings-BFME II' it loads the black screen then comes up with a blue background and all these error messages and shuts the computer down. I also have 'Worms-World Party' demo which loads black screen thens returns to desktop and error message 'worms world party has been stopped, sending error report', even tho my 'dawn of war-wa 'demo works fine. I have re-installed both games plus running them both as administrator, can't seem to figure it out, all programs work perfectly on my laptop it's just games that are a hassle. Anyone have a solution??

A:Couple of games aren't working..

Did you install the DirectX stand alone setup from Microsoft? Many games will not work without it. The DirectX setup was needed for me after new Vista x64 install even though running dxdiag said my DX10 was working.

This is not your typical quot My modern apps don't work quot post Some of my apps are working fine for instance Edge and Mail Others do not such as the Windows Store Weather Photos etc I've tried all the various tricks to uninstall and re-install these apps but get the same thing The Event Log says that the apps can't be quot activated quot which indicates Universal Apps working aren't Certain some kind of licensing issue perhaps but I haven't found the solution yet This is Windows Enterprise build It's joined to a domain and I strongly suspect that my domain admins have a group policy that Certain Universal Apps aren't working is interfering but I can't be sure They had already disabled Microsoft Accounts and turned off Telemetry via group policy and registry settings which I have countered by forcing these back on and denying update access to those keys I suppose it's possible that this might be affecting the apps as well but it's strange that some apps work and some don't Any suggestions SFC and Dism cleanups report no issues or corruption App re-installs seem to complete fine but the apps still don't work UAC is of course ON

I have the Philips MMS205 which consists of 4 satellite speakers and a subwoofer. My sound card is a Soundblaster Live! X-Gamer. My satellites are properly hooked up to the subwoofer. The line IN on the subwoofer is connected to the line OUT on the computer, and the surround IN is connected to the Rear OUT on the computer. However, the problem is that only ONE of the satelites and the subwoofer are working, the other three satelites are not emitting any sounds. Please reply if you know what is wrong and/or what i can try. Thanks.
 

A:satellite speakers aren't working

1) Can you try the speakers on another computer? They may be bad.

2) Try the front out to the surround speakers and see if they both work.

This should pin the problem down.

I am running a legitimate copy of Windows 8.
After I rebooted my laptop 3 days ago, when I open a program, it would take 3-5 minutes to load or it loads right away and once I click on the program it freezes and stops responding.
I have already ran virus scans, used CCleaner, AdwCleaner, MalwareBytes StartUpLite, ran hardware diagnostics and nothing works.
I ran my computer in safemode and all my programs came up and loaded fast.
By loaded I mean to be able to visually see it(GUI).
When I open something it'll be active in task manager but take forever to show up on my desktop.
This has been happening for 3 days, please help.

They both USB, wireless, Bluetooth, or PS2?

Sound in windows has been giving me a hard time lately I had to restore my registry manually via the Windows Recovery Console recently because Windows incorrectly Sound work sound and but related correctly, installed features drivers kept thinking it was in safe mode thus preventing a repair installation from continuing So after restoring the registry from an earlier part of the day when the issue wasn't a problem Windows started up fine and everything was working as it once did Except for sound The volume controls icon does not show in the taskbar I've gone into Control Panel - gt Sounds and Devices and checked Sound drivers installed correctly, but sound and related features work incorrectly the box that is supposed to place the controls Sound drivers installed correctly, but sound and related features work incorrectly in the taskbar but to no avail Still doesn't show up I know that this is usually caused by incorrectly installed sound drivers but they are installed fine and do not appear in an errored state in the device manager I've also reinstalled the sound drivers from my motherboard's drivers disc multiple times with no change Oddly enough any sounds that are supposed Sound drivers installed correctly, but sound and related features work incorrectly to be played by Windows do not play If I open a file in Windows Media Player or in a game the sound plays perfectly fine On top of that I'm also getting trouble with recording sounds Not just with a microphone but even from they stereo mix channel In Sounds and Audio Devices Properties looking at the Voice tab the default device for Voice Playback is blank I set it to Realtek HD Audio Output but when I press apply it resets to blank When I set it to the Realtek Output and go to the 'test hardware' button I can hear my own voice in the microphone just fine When I open Windows Sound Recorder the record button is gray and can not be pressed Other sounds which are supposed to record sounds also say that an invalid device is specified undoubtedly because the device is blank and will not change Any assistance with this infinitely annoying problem will be greatly appreciated

Hi there everyone,

After trying to solve this problem which sounds like a easy adjustment, this tech is pulling his hair out over Vista again.

Anyhow, here's the problem. Anytime I try to adjust the volume level in Vista sound mixer the volume level bar for a program, headphones etc it will just automatically side back down to the bottom of the device/program volume bar. I also noticed when I try to adjust one device or program volume level all device/program volume bars go up together, rather then just the one I'm trying to adjust.

I have been goggling for answers to this problem for hours now, so I need some advise.

Thanks

BTW I attached a screen shot of what my volume mixer always shows so you can see what I am talking about.

Hey guys,

Just a bit of backstory - I bought a Logitech webcam, which requires SP2. Due to certain circumstances *cough* I cannot acquire SP2. I popped the install disc in anyway, but a box just popped up saying I needed SP2 to continue. That was the end of that, and I returned the webcam.

So I got home... speakers weren't working. dxdiag doesn't recognise a sound card at all. I went into device manager, and all the sound drivers had !'s next to them. I uninstalled them all and reinstalled the Realtek '97 drivers, then restarted, but it was exactly the same.

I uninstalled the drivers again, the just rebooted. This time it had some !'d stuff about Microsoft Kernel (still under sound).

I'm 95% sure that the Realtek drivers are the right ones.

What do I do ;_;
