My keyboard's screwed up

4 replies 4 views Edited Nov 23, 2006
OK, I started having some problems with my keyboard a while back, and they're getting worse, so please help me!

I have a standard wireless HP Media Center keyboard (basically they added play/pause controls along with Previous, Next, Stop, and volume controls). Just now, the volume controls stopped working. I tried reconnecting it and restarting the PC, but it didn't do anything. I read somewhere that going into Control Panel>Keyboard would let me see everything I had to do with it. Until recently, there was a tab under Keyboard that said Buttons, but it's now gone for no apparent reason. This problem is annoying since I'm so used to controlling everything from my keyboard. Please help me!

If it's important, a month ago I went into that Buttons tab (when it still existed) and re-binded some buttons to open up Firefox, Windows Media Player, and my e-mail address. Could this have been the problem?

If it's a software issue, go to HP's website, and there might be drivers or updates for it there.
