Media and FN keys problem

Hi, I have a problem with function keys on my Acer Aspire 5535.

When I press the vol up/ vol dwn key it works just fine but it should show a message on the screen like on XP or Vista.

The sam thing is with function keys...

Hi and welcome

You can use the same drivers you did in vistsa if you install them in compatibility mode.


What drivers are you using now?

i did use the same drivers in compatability mode, and if i install the older version of the drivers half of the keys work (vol up/dwn, mute, turn off the touchpad...), and if install the new version downloaded from acer.com the other half works... i really don't get it.
