    Hi all,
    my girlfriend gave me a keyboard she got from a Compaq PC (cause mine looks like a pizza box),and it has some extra keys (volume, printer, cd player control,etc) so my questions is:
    is there any way to make those keys work on my pc, cause obviosly they dont work with only pluging the keyboard,so are there a program, driver or anything else that could make that?.
    Thanks!

    Have a look at the keyboard & then search google for the driver. It has to be out there somewhere.

    you could also find out if she has a CD or Floppy disk which has the Keyboard Drivers on it? I also have a keyboard with extra keys but the Drivers dont work properly with Windows XP even though they are suposedly Windows XP Compatible :(.. kept making my computer freeze :(

    But anyways, yea.. ask your gf if she has any discs which may contain the keyboard drivers :)

    Hope this helps and i hope you have better luck with your drivers than i did with mine :D

    Sincerly Alex :cool:

    unlucky dude.. its annoying when its like that innit :p

    Have you tried all the extra keys without the drivers? I can get some keys working you see without having to install anything extra but there are some keys which i would like to use but wont work because of the drivers either not being compatible or not being installed :(. What keyboard is it that you have? Vivanco?
