    i have just installed Windows XP Pro on my Dell Lattitude CPx , and it works great the only problem is that it would not let me adjust the volume from the key board.

    To adjust the volume on a dell laptop you have to hold a key that is blue in lettering called "Fn" and press "page up" that controlls the increasing volume and "page down" to decrese it.

    EVer since i installed win xp the only way to adjust volume on it is by master volume and/or through the WMP or winamp volume. If it is a driver how and where do i look? if i found a driver website wat do i type in the search bar to get the right driver i am loooking for ,

    Lonman Bleh!

    If your laptop came with the restore disks, look for the one with the drivers on it. Put it in the CD Drive, go to device manager and highlight the keyboard - right click and upgrade the driver. If it won't install, take it through the driver installation manually (assuming you find the keyboard drivers on your driver disk so you can pinpoint that location to install drivers from).

    Also, go to the Dell website and look for driver updates for your multi-media keyboard.
