  1. Media Keys not working


    Hello! I've looked everywhere and found no working solution for this.

    I have Three Items that have media keys: Mouse, Keyboard, and stream deck. Pause/Play/Skip etc work fine, but the volume keys do not work at all. The Little box in the top left corner does show up, and claims to be changing the volume, but no actual sound changes happen. The volume also doesn't change using the bottom left slider.

    I have everything set to come through my headphones as default, and all my applications set to default too, so that I can switch to my speakers whenever I like. This is the same with all applications, Spotify, browser, etc. Some sources said this is a browser issue, but I've used 4 different browsers before and all of them had this issue.

    I believe it's something to do with the media going through the headphones, as when I do switch to my speakers, the volume media keys suddenly work. But I have absolutely no idea how to fix it.

    Sorry If this is the wrong place to be posting this!

    Thanks Media Keys not working :)

    Fn key/media keys not working

    Hi community,

    Problem:

    • I have a problem with my dell laptop's ( G5 5590) Fn key.
    Description:

    1. My Fn key does not work sometimes.
    2. After a restart or a boot it works fine but after waking from sleep it doesn't.

    Why I think it's a software issue:

    • I went through the dell diagnosing tool ( something like bios) to see if the key went bad but it works there.

    What I think the problem is:

    1. Some service fails to boot .
    2. some app is taking over the media keys control.
    I hope someone can solve this.

    Thank you.

  3. Keyboard Media/Volume keys not working, only on this computer, and only this keyboard

    The media keys, volume knob, sleep button and mute button on my "Das Keyboard 4 Professional" keyboard stopped working a few weeks ago after a reboot that I think was caused by a Windows Update.

    I've tried the following steps to try and solve the issue:

    • Try a different keyboard - The media keys on a logitech wireless usb keyboard work fine, even in the same USB port.
    • Try keyboard with another PC - When plugged in to my laptop the Das Keyboard media/volume keys work fine.
    • Try another USB port - No difference
    • Tried completely wiping any trace of the keyboard from the registry/device manager, then plugging it in again - No difference.
    • Created a new user on the PC - No difference.
    • Ensured the HID Human Interface Service is running.
    • Disable touch keyboard and related services.

    What could be causing this?
