Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook ?

Volume buttons and mute/unmute buttons don't work

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook Computer. The mute/unmute buttons and the volume up and down buttons on the top of the keyboard to longer work at all. I can still click on the sound icon and change the volume controls with my up and down arrows. Is there a possible solution for this problem?\015

Answers :

First open the Control Panel -> Keyboard Layout. Look for\015\012the dropdown list for different keyboard models. Scroll to the Dell\015\012models and try e.g. the Dell Mulimedia USB Keyboard layout. Stop the GUI with Ctl+Alt+Return, login again and maybe your multimedia buttons will work now.

If there is no keyboard layout that fits your needs, you may download the programs keytouch and keytouch editor, which are very helpful creating your own layout.
