Multimedia Enhanced PS/2 Keyborad (RT7D30)

  • I have a Multimedia Enhanced keyboard, part number on bottom is RT7D30. I need the drivers for this unit and to know why my function keys do not work properly. (IE: F3 does not repeat last command in command prompt window, CTRL+A does not allow select all feature, ALT+Print Screen does not print the active screen.) Is this a function of the incorrect drivers or something with in the XP OS?

  • I do not have the drivers / application on a CD. Please provide a link.
  • bantek,

    Was the keyboard purchased with a system or as a stand alone item?

  • I don't have a CD to look at. I need to be able to download the drivers and application from the Dell site. I have been unable to locate the page that will give me those files.
  • bantek,

    If you still need that driver - you can use the driver for keyboard RT7D00 - I am using it with my new keyboard RT7D30 and everything works. You can find that driver on www.dell.com  if you are looking for drivers for a Dimension 4550. This is how I found the driver I am using.

  • I tried loading those drivers; however, it does not allow my hot keys to work.

    Ultimately, I am trying to figure out why my function keys do not work. I am unsure if it is the keyboard drivers or something within XP.

  • I have Windows XP Professional and keyboard RT7D30 working with the driver for RT7D00 and everything is ok...
