I have an odd question. I have a Dell Multimedia Pro USB keyboard (manuf # W875D Dell p/n 330-2486) that does not have all its functions working. Mainly it is the volume control and multimedia controls. Everything else works fine. All of the dedicated keys above the F1-12 and the mute buttons work. I have tried searching for a driver or anything but I can not seem to find anything. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
Thank you all in advance for the time and have a great evening!
I had a similar issue with my Dell Multimedia KB running WIndows 7 Professional 64bit on an XPS 435T/9000.
What I did to resolve it,
All the multimedia keys including volume control worked again. If this doesn't work for you, try a different USB port. We would need to know your Dell model. Windows drivers work just fine with the keyboard.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will try it as soon as I get home. By the way it is a Dimension 8300 running XP SP3. Thanks again for the time.
FYI... my Dell Multimedia KB was the older model.
However, I just received the new Dell Multimedia Pro KB like you have and while my XPS 435T/9000 was up and running WIndows 7, I unplugged the older model and plugged in the new KB. I had no issues using all of the keys including the multimedia keys.
