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.)

I recently updated my AMD display driver (Radeon 7640G I think) and now my brightness buttons, keyed to F2 and F3 are not working. The rest of my buttons are working fine so it is not the keyboard. I also cannot change it when I press the battery button on my taskbar (both brightness and battery saver are unavailable). This is a major issue because now my screen it at the lowest brightness possible and I have to work with my lights off (and even then it's still difficult to see). I tried updating my drivers but there was nothing available to update. I've been trying to update drivers for my HP printer though both updates receive an error message:   (1)  Hewlett-Packard - Enterprise WSD Multi-Function Printer, Multi-Function Printer, Other hardware - Null Print - HP ENVY 7640 series - Error 0x8024200b (2) HP driver update for Fax - HP ENVY 7640 series - Error 0x80240017 Microsoft Support tried to help with the error message (and reportedly tried to fix Windows Update) but after they "helped" me this brightness issue starting occurring. If it means anything, when my computer boots up, a new screen appears that says something about Watch Dogs. That used to never appear until MS. I'm not sure if that is the issue though.  Thanks!

I have an HP Elitebook X3U19AV that was given to me from my work.

Brand new out of the box.

Running Windows 10 Education - version 1607
OS Build 14393.1593

Two somewhat similar problems with one little difference.

When I use the F3 and F4 button to try and control brightness nothing happens. I've tried pushing these buttons while holding down the fn key and without holding down that key.

When I use the f5,6 and 7 button to try and control the volume, I can see the system volume display showing up and being affected, but it doesn't change the volume that is actually coming out of my computer. I have noticed this on several websites with sound. I also downloaded Spotify to see if the volume control buttons would work on that and they do not. I have to find the individual volume control within the website or in Spotify and change the sound for just that app or website.

I have followed the suggestion on this website that asked me to run the System File Checker. No luck.

Press the Windows key+X and choose Device Manager.
Expand Monitor.Right Click and Generic PNP Monitor and Uninstall it.

Right click Any device and choose Scan For Hardware Changes, this will reinstall a fresh driver for the monitor. This returned the Dim function and the F 7 & 8 brightness function to the keyboard.

Hi guys,

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.

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.  Please help

So I have two Dell Inspiron (all-in-one) 3030’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 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’t work. Everything including the BIOS is up to date but that got me wondering….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 a few months.

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. Regards, DP-K

Greetings.

I'm using XP professional.

On "control panel", "install o uninstall programs" the buttons have disappeared. I cannot uninstall the programs any more.

I've installed "Windows live toolbar" and then "Windows live one care". The programs revised during 23 hours the PC and found no problem. It caused problems because it entered in conflict with other programs so I uninstalled it.

I re-installed Windows XP professional from the CD and there was no change either. The only effect: I have a zillion Windows updates waiting.
I don't know if it has something to do with this problem:
Automatic update of Windows doesn't update any more. I tried manually, no update. It simply says "some updates have not been installed". It means, no update.

Thank you for your help

I have both Speakers and Headphones plugged in and they show up as 2 different devices in Sound > Playback Devices.
Headphones are plugged into the USB keyboard.
The Speakers are set as the Default Device.
Using the volume nob on my keyboard changes the volume for the Headphones instead of the keyboard.

Kind of pointless to change the volume for the non-default device, since it's not in use right?
I've not seen any way to change this anywhere as far as I can find.

I don't have any clue what would cause this, or what did cause it. I have the Logitech ClearChat Wireless headset. It has an on/off switch, a mute button for the built-in mic, and up/down volume controls. Well, something's happened with the volume controls, now when I click them and a program window is open, it closes it. Eithe up or down, it appears to be acting as an ALT+F4 macro button. I would have posted this on the logitech forums, but I can't sign in, even though I'm using the right email and password, it won't let me.

This is really frustrating, because sometimes I listen to music in the broswer and I use the volume controls on the headset, and now using them closes the browser window, or windows media player, whatever window is open and focused gets closed when the buttons get pressed.

Someone PLEASE help me figure out this problem! Thanks in advance.

EDIT: it turns out all the control buttons on my keyboard are malfunctioning also. I mean the volume control buttons, play/pause next/previous media item, favorite buttons, music, broswer, zoom, etc keyboard shortcuts, they all try to shut down the computer.

I can't seem to figure out what happened, I was deleting some old programs through the control panel/add and remove programs. Now when I go back to the same window, the buttons to the right of the screen Change/Remove are missing.....what do I have to do to fix this?

A:Change/Remove buttons gone in my control panel under add and remove programs

Try a System Restore before this problem occured.

For some reason the onscreen display for the volume controls and screen brightness on my W530 stop working after coming back from sleep or resume. I updated Power Management, Hotkey and Interface but the problem still rears its ugly head. If I go into screen resolution and advanced and on screen then uncheck Enable onscreen and recheck it...the controls work again.

A:Volume control buttons do not display volume level...

try to reinstall the OSD software. Uninstall the current OSD software that you have, and download the latest version from below.

Fn-Home and Fn-End no longer adjust the screen brightness of my laptop.  The home and end keys alone work fine, as do other function keys.  A suggested solution on another thread was to roll back the video driver - I tried this and lost the video driver altogether, and had to reinstall it manually.  (This may be because I recently had to restore the system to a two-year-old image as a result of another problem, which was apparently caused by updating to Windows 10 and then reverting back to Windows 7).  The video driver (Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000) is up to date.  I am running Windows 7 64-bit edition.  Any idea what could be causing this?Thanks!
