I tried to restore the system, but it got an error and didn't restored the system settings.

Also, those keys are supported by Windows, but it seems that some sort of driver must been playing with it and broke it. I don't know.

Well, i deleted the driver which i putted in before (it was a driver that WU wanted to install, i downloaded manual version) and...

Every media button doesn't work. Now i need a new driver for it.

Yes, and it didn't worked.

Also, i found out the... "cause"? Of the problem. It's the driver that WU wanted to shove into my computer. I disabled it, and it disabled the media key. I have NO GODDAMN IDEA how to fix it. Windows is a b*tch, same as Micro$hit.

Anyways, i'm gonna live without them. It's not like a blood pump in a computer. I've setted up new key shortcuts in Winamp, and they are also comfortable.

Anyways, thanks for help!

I discovered something. I've connected that keyboard again, and... IT... WORKS...

AND MINE IS NOT WORKING. WHAT IS THIS SORCERY.

Maybe something in registry needs to be fixed. I'll see what i can do.

Multimedia keys stopped working on HPdv600 x64
See title. The little blue multimedia hotkeys randomly stopped working. HP doesn't seem to have any W7 drivers on their site and uninstalling/reinstalling all the HID and keyboard entries in Device Manager then restarting didn't do anything.
