    Multimedia buttons stop working whenever i restart


    I have a Klip Extreme Multimedia Keyboard: KKM-101E.

    My my keyboard used to work fine until about a week ago the multimedia buttons will stop working whenever I restart/shutdown my computer.

    I have to unplug and plug back in the USB cable for it to work properly.

    I have tried to deleting it from Device Manager,and the drivers for it.

    I'm using a MSI-880 GMS E35 motherboard.

    Any ideas?

    A lot of keyboards or mice come with a CD to install software onto your computer.

    The software usually enables all these features plus more so you can get the most out of your keyboard.

    If you have the cd or dvd, install the software for your keyboard.

    My keyboard did not come with any software and there isn't any on the manufacturers website.

    This link might help, although I don't know what year your keyboard is.

    I already checked their website. I think it's a problem in the registry or something. Anyways thank you for your time.

    Hey I got it to work!

    Control Panel>
    Devices and Printers>
    Right Click on USB Keyboard>
    Select Region and Language>
    Changed Keyboard Layout to US.

    I live in Trinidad (The Caribbean), a setting must have gotten changed somehow and the layout of the keyboard was set to UK. So I switched it back to US. (We were formerly governed by the UK, so it was set to UK English probably when I installed some software.)

    Anyways thank you again!
