Inspiron 8000 Volume keys don't work

This question is not answered

Hi,

I have the Inspiron 8000 with Win XP Pro. My media keys work, except for my volume keys don't work. I have downloaded the Dell Access Direct and the ESS Maestro 3 and the taskbar sound works, but not my keyboard volume keys. Does anyone know wants wrong with it? Thanks in advance.

  • Here are a couple of things that were posted by other forum members years ago. This is all I have in my notes about Access Direct.

     

    "After AccessDirect is installed, the keys have to be changed from applications to CD/DVD functions for multimedia use and your volume buttons should work. "

  • Hi, I tried changing the apps to CD/DVD, still won't work. I will download the USB Keyboard driver and will let you know.

    Thanks.

  • I downloaded the USB Keyboard driver and volume keys still don't work. Any other suggestions?
