    Just some of the keys in the top left My documents, pictures and music. It's not a big deal but I thought if the drivers did exist it would be nice to have everything working.

    Ah, OK, Windows can handle the media keys, pause, play, volume up down OK but those extra ones can be a pain. I have similar custom keys on my Logitech keyboard that won't work without installing the Setpoint software. Have a look for Windows 7 or even Vista drivers for that keyboard and see if they will install, you may have to use compatibility mode.

    Another option is to look at key remapping utilities. If they can actually see those keys then you can assign them a function. I used one to make one of my trackball keys a back button. I can't remember what program I used at the moment, if I do I'll post it to this thread.

    The programs I used was X-Mouse Button Control, it is for mice so it won't be of much use to you. I finally remembered what it was.
