Dell 9100 notebook Media buttons - How to customize???


OSNN Senior Addict
hi. i have a Dell 9100. How can is customize these buttons by the keyboard so that i can use to play other dvd players aside from the factory installed Dell Media since it does not work well (does not play dvds).. thanks.
Do you have the Dell QuickSet software installed? That's what allows you to customize the buttons. It would be on one of the CDs you received with the machine. You can also check for updated versions on Dell Support's Downloads page:

ok. i'll check that. i had called tech this afternoon and she said that it can't be modified which i didn't believe anyway. i'll check the software features and other updated downloads so that i can customize it. thanks for the info.
I'm not sure to what degree the software allows you to customize the buttons, since I don't have the same machine. My 5100 has just one button marked "i" beside the power button that can be customized to launch any application using QuickSet...I just never use it.
It's worth a try anyway.

I have that same computer and those keys only work for Windows Media Player with no software installed, it would be nice to get them working with winamp...but I dont think that will happen

yeah, that is not cool. i own the hardware but i can't even customize how its parts works. i am using CyberlinkPowerDVD to play with a dvd because the Dell Media has a problem with its audio. the problem is DTS audio setup is not supported by the audio setup and it does not have the option.. :(

i did try quickset but it only gives you the option for customizing other functions like battery hibernation but not customizing the media buttons to function with another player software. :(

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
