Acer laptop volume buttons

  Graham. 15:59 06 Jan 09

A friend has an Acer Aspire 5633wlm click here (Sold out).

It has sound volume buttons on the side which have stopped working. Is this likely to be a hardware fault?

You can still adjust the volume using the speaker icon in the taskbar, so I wondered if that had disabled the buttons.

Also, the Fn key + arrow keys should also adjust the volume but don't.

I think Acer have drivers installed to operate extra buttons such as these. Could these drivers have been removed? Try re-installing them.

I couldn't see the buttons in Device Manager.

Refers to Launch Manager which I think Acer use for these extras. On my Acer there is a shortcut button above the keyboard to open Launch Manager.

Thanks, I've asked her to look for the Launch Manager button. Her husband is very heavy-handed, so it's possible he has turned it off.
