Preferred Solution: windows 8.1 function and volume buttons

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: windows 8.1 function and volume buttons

 Try running SFC.  From the Search charm type CMD, then right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator.  From the command prompt type sfc /scannow.  If that doesn't fix it, download, install, and get Malwarebytes up to date, then do a scan with it.
 
Good luck.

After updating to windows 10 I had a few minor problems with the start menu and ran a fix tool to get this working. This tool seems to have broken the sound and wifi (it now won't turn on and cannot detect any sound devices). I tried to do a restore but I misread and seemed to select an option which deleted all the installed software and this has now removed all the initial software from Toshiba.

As such I have a fairly major problem... I could just restore my factory setting but I am not keen to do so and I have been very lax with backups of all but the most important files. Is there anywhere to download the original toshiba software so I can restore all this functionality?

I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my Hp DV9823CL. The quickplay and dvd buttons work,but the volume and mute buttons do not. This is what I sent HP:

problem description : I did a clean install of Windows 7. Prior to the clean install all quickplay buttons worked fine. Now the quickplay and the dvd buttons work,but the volume and mute buttons do not work.
troubleshooting : I reinstalled quickplay, as well as the quick play buton drivers that are listed. I also did a troubleshoot that worked once when I removed the battery and put it back in. This also does not fix the problem.

This is what their repsonse was:

Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.
Scott, as I was checking your notebook?s specification I found that your notebook was shipped with Windows Vista. Your notebook is not upgradable to windows 7 as there is no driver available your notebook?s driver page. Your notebook is design to perform its best in Windows Vista. So I request you to get back to the original operating system.
If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist you further.
For information on keeping your HP and Compaq products up and running, please visit our Web site

So do they really think, I should dump a better OS and go back to Vista,just because the volume and mute buttons do not work..there must be a solution.

A:Volume and Mute buttons do not work with Windows 7

scott,
I remember getting such a msg from HP one time. I was stubborn and got hold of another person at HP who pointed me to the info I needed. Trouble is your inquiry gets handled by a Tier 1 newbee who doesn't know up from down and only has a script of answers to questions. Hang in there.

Also, try out the WIN + X combo You will possibly find what you are looking for.
The WIN key is that one with the funny looking wavy flag on it.

Hello sevenforums,
I just received a new keyboard today: Thermaltake Challenger Ultimate. I went from a Logitech G15.

First thing I did was connect the keyboard and install the software that came along on the CD, it probably also installed the correct drivers. First after this did I uninstall the software and drivers from the old Logitech G15. But before that, and now after, the volume buttons on my new keyboard is still not adjusting the volume when I press them.

A speaker-icon like this shows up when I press the volume buttons, so its not that the keys are not working: (ignore the text behind it, its me writing an assignment)



Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be wrong?

Hi everyone,I had the hard drive replaced recently in my G580 (Windows7) and everything is perfect except this one thing. I use the Volume: FN/down and FN/up a lot. It's very awkward that I can't see the volume setting any more. I know I can use the volume control in the tray but that is too slow to use in a live muic situation.btw the Fn/brightness also works but doesn't show the settings.Is this a setting that has gone awry that I can easily change?I've seen posts about the FN not working at all but nothing about it owrking but just not being visible.Thanks for any help.

I'm trying to fix a friend's computer and not near it all the time, so bear with me on missing infos, I will get whatever info I need though. OK - symptoms: Connect to a network lights up but has no action, no error message or anything. Other buttons also do this, I will post again to list them all if needed. Here's what I've done so far - when I first worked on the computer it was locked out of the primary account with "User Profile failed the logon" and could not connect to wifi on the guest account. I went into the guest account regedit and took .bak off of one of the folders and put it on the duplicate named folder, and changed the state from 8000 to 0. The Admin account is now opened and connects to remembered wifi routers automatically, but still can't click on connect to network + others. I ran sfc/scannow and it showed no problems with integrity, and replaced VAN.dll in case it was corrupt, still no luck. I know it is a Compaq; will find out specific model later. Also anything else you need to know. The guest account does not connect to wifi at all but this may be because there were no remembered passwords in it.
Thanks in advance

A:volume buttons

Hello. There are a couple of things one can do to try to solve an audio problem when one does not know what is causing the problem. The first thing is to reinstall the audio driver:
1. Open the Device Manager2. Expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section.3. Right click on the audio driver and select to uninstall.4. Do not put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software.5. Restart the laptop and Windows will reinstall the driver, but with the settings back to their defaults.
Another thing is to use Windows System Restore if you have a Windows operating system. Find a Restore Point dated from before the cat walked on the laptop. Windows System Restore will fix certain system changes.
A third thing you can do is reset the laptop back to the original factory configuration.
If you need more help, include the full model name of your laptop and which operating system it has. Without knowing those things you can only get generic advice.

Hi, I know this is not exactly the right sort of forum but I thought someone might know why the remote that came with my 5.1 speakers has 2 volume up and volume down buttons. But pressing either 2 of the volume up buttons just does the same thing, increase the volume on the display by one, and same for volume down.

So why does it have 2 sets? Is it some special feature or something to do with surround? Or even just for looks lol? Pic:

A:Remote has 2 Sets of Volume Buttons

As a guess, I'd say that one set is for the front pair of speakers and the other is for the rear speakers. It could also be that one is actually a front-to-rear fader and the other is a left-right balance control.

What brand and model are the speakers?

In Device Manager>>Sound, what do you see highlighted under "Set a playback device..." and what do you see selected when you press "Configure"? The fact that both sets of buttons do the exact same thing makes me think that Windows isn't sure what kind of speaker configuration you have.

Did the speakers come with any software? If so, is it properly installed?

Hey Everyone,       As the title says I have a random controller issue.  When using the controller via bluetooth the buttons will sometimes change function.  I believe this is a setting in the laptop that does not work well with Uplay.   System:  Yoga 720 15" 4K screen, i7 processor, 1TB SSD, 24GB RAM (8 soldered, 16 in free slot) Conditions for Causing the Failure: -  Playing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands which is the only Ubisoft game on my Machine-  Connected via Bluetooth- Happens almost always upon launching the game. I can use the keyboard to get the game started. I must connect the controller via USB for it to function properly.  Since it's a laptop that isn't a huge deal but it would be nice to be unteathered.  Also I almost always game with a cooling pad under my machine.  My core temps and untilizatoins are well within safe operational levels (which is why I switched back to a 720 from a 730...the 730 had terrible throttling issues).  This issue does not occur with Battlefield 1 on the Origin platform.  It appears to be only an issue with Ghost Recon. The Yoga 730 I owned had similar specs and this issue did not occur on that machine.  I'd like to purchase another Ubisoft game to see if this continues but I just don't see any that I'd like to buy at the moment.  Attempted Corrective Actions: - I have updated the BIOS- Uninstalled and...
