Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Brightness function keys are not working

\015 I use Windows XP \302\240and there is no way I can make the brightness keys (Fn + F7 & F8) work. I know there was a bug with an older version of QuickLauch Buttons drivers and that there's also a problem with new Intel drivers released for X3100.The fact is that I've tried almost everything. I always do fresh installs of Windows XP from a license I own (despite\302\240HP\302\240fully supports XP and gave me a downgrade to XP from Vista for free). Installing the right (bug free) driver combination HP advices only works until I reboot, downloading the Intel driver from his own page and not installing any quicklaunch driver dones not work neither...\302\240I tried every combination possible, and always installing a fresh Windows wihtout any old driver or HP preloaded driver. Even without installing any driver (quicklaunuch buttons or Intel x31000), brightness keys don't work. They stop working when login screen loads in the Windows XP startup.\015
