ACPI Driver for Win7 x32 isnt working at all

Hello fellow forum members,
im having a problem with my asus eee pc 1201n with a running wind7 x32 bit.
I had to reinstall it due some technical issues and the most things run pretty smoothly.
The only problem Im having is, I can use my fn keys to change volume and stuff. So I searched for the driver I needed and tried to install it, but I failed.
It cant complete :-(
I tried it with admin modus, other windows version but it just wont work.
I hope you can help me to find a solution.
Best regards,

BeWat3r

IIRC it's in a program called "Hotkey service" or "Hotkey Utility". Before you install the new one you're supposed to uninstall the old driver (or so I've heard)

You could try if you can get it via life update (or open a ticket with ASUS if you're still under warranty)

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download Eee PC 1201N

or talk to their customer service to find out which update holds the driver you need (via IM, phone or email)
