    windows 8.1 upgrade remote control no longer working


    since I have upgraded to 8.1 my remote control no longer works it is detected in device manager and driver is installed but when I click skip,play, stop etc nothing happens. I use it mainly for my music.

    is there a way to get it working again. I use the default music app to play music which I preferred the old version to be honest.

    Windows 8.1


    Hello,

    What type of computer do you have ?

    I recently upgraded my Acer Aspire 5600u to Win 8.1 and now my remote no longer works either, which is really annoying. I have contacted Acer but as of yet no reply from them. The remote is a 'wistron' from what I can gather.

    I have a 65000u as well and same story with the remote. Would love to get this sorted.
