    Hey all,

    I got a G11 keyboard, and I cannot get the media keys to work across the top.

    Went to Logi's site and in the FAQ's they said that it was the media player's problem.

    I am using WMP11.

    The installation CD only comes with software to make the gaming keys work.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Heeter

    Do you have all the software installed?

    I have personally never had an issue in wmp or winamp with the media keys.

    If a reboot doesn't fix the issues, I would consider un-installing the drivers and re-installing and seeing whats up.

    Thanks for the response, Sazar.

    I just tried that, uninstall, reinstall. Downloaded the latest from site (Which was the same as cd) and tried those as well.

    I will try again,

    Thanks again,

    Is there absolutely no response at all?

    If you have the lcd applet up, see if you have everything enabled that needs be.

    I don't think the G11 has LCD like the G15 does.

    No it doesn't have the LCD display, but you should still have a similar applet running for media key functionality.

    Hiya guys,

    I don't have the little screen, but the "G" buttons applet that runs on my monitor is working perfectly.

    The situation is only with the multimedia keys and the mute button.

    This G11 keyboard replaced another logitech cordless keyboard, but that one had no issues, straight plug'n'play. Now when I tried using it, it's media keys don't work now either. Go figure.

    Thanks for all the help so far guys, Sazar.

    Would be nice to get these keys going.

    I wonder if there is a conflict between the old and the new keyboard software.

    Perhaps you need to clean out some redundant reg settings and files? I can't think of anything else.

    My g-15 worked ace off the bat, I just needed the software for the display, the media keys worked from the get-go. Your's should too, there HAS to be some kind of communication fubar (i.e. software mucking it up).

    Give it a look see and check in msconfig from run to see if you have any redundant apps running at startup that might be causing issues.

    G.luck, keep us posted on what you find out buddy.

    firewall could be preventing the launch also..check to see if you have system protection or sandbox or something like that enabled,

    Firewall? Shouldn't be. It's a direct plug and play product m8. How would the firewall affect that?

    I have had issues with multiple logitech products connected to the same system previously (my mx1000 and my mx revolution).

    my firewall, (kerio) will prevent any hardware from launcing any program without my permission or a rule, iit won't even let software launch other software without permission or a rule

    for instance, the first time I install any program, the first time I launch it the firewall will ask tell me;

    "explorer is trying to launch outlook express, you want to allow?"

    any time I update a driver the firewall tells me "this program has changed since it was last launched, do you want to allow?"

    it's called a sandbox and you don't really need an anti virus with this type of system security

    this thing is so **** I think the first time I wanted to leave for the bathroom it made me get permission from myself

    I think norton has something similar

    Here is a screenie of my msconfig

    Thanks for the help, guys, Sazar.

    I went back to the logi site and could not come up with in the FAQs that addresses this issue.

    The logi "Setpoint" is for my mx revolution, which replaced the mx700 with no dilemma.

    From that, it looks fine.

    I would consider deleting all logitech software and removing all entries if possible and then re-installing and see if that clears things up for you.

    Does it not work at all or is it sporadically active?

    Hiya Sazar,

    It doesn't work at all.

    I will take another crack at it. I am going to uninstall software, remove entries in C:/Program Files, then I'll hop into the regedit and see about removing entries with logitech in them. I don't have any other Logi stuff other than this keyboard/mouse.

    Will get back to you when I complete these tasks.

    Hmmm,

    I uninstalled all logitech stuff, then manually deleted file folders, then went through regedit and found a whole swack of logi stuff, and removed anything associated with keyboard and mouse.

    Rebooted and still no go, the multimedia keys still don't want to work.

    Gonna go to the logi site and see if I can contact someone directly through email or such.

    Thanks for all your help Sazar.

    Update:

    After a lot of searching, I found this:

    After the regedit mod, all my keys are now working, including the media keys

    Thanks to all.
