I have the same problem, except that it does (though rarely) work. The play/pause, next and previous buttons work fine but the volume and mute buttons don't.

Just in case this works for you:

also, be sure to follow the instructions on the linked site, and have it execute on startup...

Have you tried uninstalling and deleting the windows driver for the keyboard, then "scan for hardware changes" under device manager? I uninstall/reinstalled my eclipse driver and it brought back the function keys.

It's for the eclipse III, but it might be worth a try.

Go to Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services. Find "Human Interface Device Access" and turn it to "Automatic". Then right click on it and press start!
