I seems to be an startupentry which you manually have to change from manual to automatic.. If there are anyone having this problem, here is the solution:

- Go to controlpanel --> Performance and maintenance --> Administrative tools

- Choose services and scroll down to find "Human interface devices"

- Right click and choose properties --> and change startup type from manual to automatic --> Reboot and your media buttons should now be working again!

At least it did here, and i'm now happy with my new keyboard!


This, and only this solution has helped so much! Thank you, Toby91! You are the real MVP.
