    Media keys refreshing page


    I recently have been having this issue where whenever I use the media keys (play, pause, rewind, and forward) and the volume keys on my quickfire pro it just refreshes my browser window. This has been happening recently and is very annoying. Any suggestions?

    Hello Djkrazy2000 and welcome to EightForums, make sure that the function keys are enabled by pressing the "FN" key or the function key and press any of the keys you seem to be having issues with, i'd suggest the volume key that way you don't need to open the media player and test to see if it increases and decreases the volume and not refresh your browser window. If this does not seem to fix your issue, it may be a problem with your keyboard as I have looked up some reviews on the Quickfire Pro and it seems people have been having issues with some of the keys as well.

    Also please refrain from using a "bump" post as it is against the forum rules.

    I apologize for the bump, I am new to these forums. I am unaware of if it is a keyboard problem or not, I will go try it on another computer to see.

    So, I tried it on another computer and it worked fine. So it seemed to be my computer only. After a crash while playing Red Faction: Armageddon, it appears to be working fine. (The crash scare me a little because I JUST built this computer this summer)
