Windows 7: Multimedia keys

Multimedia keys

Hi, I have a problem with Windows 7.
On the top of my notebook's keyboard there are some multimedia keys such as "Play, Stop ecc.." and I have a problem with Volume keys.
While I have to tap once on "Vol Up/Down"" to increase/decrease system volume of 10% in Vista, in Windows 7 every tap increases/decreases system volume of 2%.. it is very uncomfortable... Now.. does anyone know how to do in Seven the same thing I do in Vista?

Thank you.

Ps: Sorry for bad english..

First, Welcome to the Windows 7 forums.

Second, before we can help you we will need some information about your laptop. (make / model, Installed RAM, Processor etc.) as well as what flavor of windows 7 you are running (x86 or x64) and the build number.

On top of what "Weadict" has indicated did your laptop come with a drivers disk for the factory installed O/S.

I have an Acer Aspire6930 (exactly 864G50MN).
Cpu: Intel dual Core P8600 (2.40ghz)
Ram: 4GB DDR2
Vga: Nvidia Geforce 9600m GT
I am running Windows 7 x86 version, build 7100.

Lee: I created on Vista Recovery Disks (Cd1 contains the OS, Cd2 contains drivers and utilities).
There is an utility (Launch manager) that allows me to modify only two buttons (Bluetooth and Acer Deluxe) but this works only with Vista..
But all multimedia keys are working fine..

If you need more information, ask me

"This is not a current operation system"

When I try to install it I get this error.. Anyway this program lets me configure only two (useless) keys..

Perhaps there is a configuration file for the manager that you can modify. I'll see what I can find out.

True, but it also installs the drivers for your volume control. The drivers installed on your system now are more then likely Microsoft drivers . . .

Ok, I downloaded the package from the link I gave you, extracted the files, and found the .inf file that directs the installation.
Its located in WHQL_LH folder.

Use device manager by going to Start -> then type Device Manager in the search box and hit enter.
Find your Multimedia device, then right click and select Properties.
Click on Update Driver Software.
Click on Browse my Computer for Driver Software.
Click on Let Me Pick From a List of Device Drivers on my Computer.
Click on Have Disk . .

Then browse to the location where you unzipped the driver package. Your looking for the WHQL_LH folder.

Select the .inf file LManager and follow the onscreen instructions from there.

This should install the manufacturer drivers for your Quick Keys including the Volume control.

Let me know if this works for you. Any questions, feel free to PM me.
Also, I have subscribed to this thread so any new posts will alert me via email.
