Windows 7: Multimedia keys stopped working on HPdv600 x64

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.

Hi SomeGuyDude,

Have you tried using the Vista drivers? That works for many driver issues in Windows 7. I couldn't find a specific one for multimedia keys, but here's the Driver page for an HP dv6244us running Windows Vista x64:Select software and drivers HP Pavilion dv6244us Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Have you contacted HP yet? Try tweeting them, that will probably get a faster response than calling or emailing.
