Fn Keys Relating to Volume Not Working

Hey guys, I have a new ASUS K60IJ laptop. I'm having some problems with the fn + f10 - f12 keys. Those govern speaker mute, volume down and volume up, respectively. They simply don't work. The fn shortcuts for brightness (f5 and f6) and "display switch" (f8) work, just not the ones that control and mute the volume. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue? Thanks!

Getting the brightness / wifi on-off / volume keys to work
I recently got a new laptop and replaced the preinstalled Windows 8 with Windows 7. Unfortunately, the special options to the function keys (wifi on/off, brightness, change volume, change multiscreen mode, etc.) don't work. Does anybody know of a way to fix that?

Some keys not working
*NEW KEYBOARD*. Probably a few drivers weren't installed. Check my last thread if you don't know what I'm talking about. Anyway. The letter "D" isn't working properly. You gotta click it a few times to work. How do I fix this? This is a "hama" keyboard.

Keyboard volume keys not working
I have two pairs of volume shortcut keys on the keyboard. Suddenly both have stopped working. The only way I can adjust the volume is through the system tray. Any help? These shortcuts are very useful while playing a game.

Laptop Shortcut Keys Not Showing Volume info etc.
I recently installed some windows 7 updates, and after the reboot I realized the Function shortcut keys were not working perfectly (ie. Fn+F5 for volume up, Fn+F3 to shut off wireless etc.).
