  • Andape,

    Did you recently install/reinstall the operating system?

    Start, control panel, Windows mobility center. Make sure the function row is set for multimedia key.

  • This doesn't fix the problem

    The WAVES quick launch key still won't work

    any solution? 

  • colbar,

     

    Did you install the Realteck Audio drivers from Drivers & Downloads?

     

    Hit the Windows Key and the X keys at the same time. You should see...

    Under Function Key row, select Multimedia key.

  • djg13,

     

    When you installed the operating system, did you install the Dell System Software(if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

    Start with the Dell System Software and the chipset drivers and follow the list.

     

    Did you download and insstall the Realtek drivers from Dell's website

  • Thanx a lot MOUSTAFAFAROUK ......i just installed the quick set which u gave a link....n yeah its working now.....thanx a lot...:)

  • Hi I also have a very similar system setup and a similar problem after a rebuild.

    Dell XPS 17+3D L702x - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit,  2nd Generation Intel Core i7-2860QM processor
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M - 12
    GB Ram.

    Completely rebuilt the machine as it was running slowly due to malware, runs brilliantly fast now, but I cannot get the Dell Realtek driver to work properly. The equaliser, Maxx Audio selections do not work. I use the machine for audio recording and the driver issue means that I also do not get a line-in record option on Adobe Audition CS5.5

    Your help/assistance will be gratefully received. 

    Thanks
