    I don't know if this is the right forum or not, but just awhile ago I got out of RH and went onto Windows XP and I pressed the Calculator key on my keyboard to open AIM but it didn't open, so then I tried other hot keys with the same efficed, nothing's happening. can someone knows a way to fix this?? I've tried rebooting without any luck :(

    thanks for any help

    no help, but after i installed Windows XP on my computer, my keyboards Lower Volume button opens the Calculator, raise volume gets me nothing, play/pause, stop, forward, backward get me nothing too.... just one of those things i guess.

    going into, say, keyboard properties in control panel gives you thing, guys? maybe something else in control panel? i'm gussing something automatically installs when you plug in one of these usb keyboards with all the extra buttons.

    if not, you might need software. try the manufacturer's website.

    Install the Microsoft IntelliKeys software.

    It should have come with your keyboard if not go download it from microsofts site.

    I'm just using the driver that xp supplies with no problem. You could go to the device manager, remove the keyboard, reboot. XP will then install it again & it should be OK.

    see... I've formated my computer sometime back when I upgrade my mobo, processor, ram, etc... and I reinstalled that Microsoft Intillatype or whatever software, just recently the hot keys just doesn't work and I checked it and everything.. oh wellz.. I guess I'll try removing the dirvers and reinstalling them once again to see if it'll work

    Did you try removing it from the device manager? Mine works fine with the xp driver.
