Hello all :) I just got a G15 as a christmas present, but the media keys doenst seem to work at all.. Ive tried the fix in this thread but the expand string in regedit is allready there.. I also have a MX610 Laser mouse which uses Setpoint.. So if u know any solutions to this i would be extatic :)!!

Everything else on the keyboard works fine..

What media player are you using?

My media keys work with WMP11 and VLC as well as the Zune player.

Don't remember using it with other players and I don't use winamp, but it worked with winamp back in the day.

If you are using Winamp you have to goto Options> Pref>Global Hotkeys> Then check the first box and second box.

look in Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services - check to see if HID (Human Interface Device Access) is set to auto and started

I cant start the Human interface device.. It comes up with this warning

"Could not start the Human Interface Device Acces service on Local Computer.
Error 126 : The specified module could not be found"

im guessing you have XP SP2 if so you can either do this from the cd or the system32\dllcache folder

copy hidserv.dll, mouhid.sys and mouclass.sys from XP CD's i386\ directory to windows\system32

or from c:\windows\system32\dllcache

The only file on my XP SP2 CD is the hidserv.IN_file

No - mouhid.sys, mouclass.sys or hidserv.dll

Where could i find them then?


#
The hidserv.dll file is not in my Windows folder..
The service is also supposed to run inside svchost.exe.. So maybe its my svchost.exe thats not working?

i have found the files - i was looking in the wrong place

1.Insert Windows XP Setup CD.
2.Browse to <CD-ROM>:\i386\drivers.cab
3.Double click the drivers.cab file. The compressed files in the Cab file
will be listed.
4.Copy the three files to <SystemRoot>\windows\system32\. Reboot the
computer.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
