I've had my laptop (Samsung R530) for about 2 years, and after I decided to wipe the HDD and re-install windows 7 onto it, I found that some of my function keys don't work. for example if I press the Fn key and hit the left or right arrow it adjust the volume and this works fine, however, if I press the up and down arrows this is supposed to adjust the brightness of my screen which it does not. I've tried looking for drivers for the keyboard but had no such luck, I have also un-installed the keyboard through device manager and re-installed it after a reboot, but this did nothing.

any ideas? been really bugging me for a few months now!

You need to install the Easy Display Manager from Samsung's website.
Go here: Support - Notebooks NP-R530 | Samsung Laptops

Click on "See All Downloads" to the right of the laptop picture.
Click on "Software" under "Manuals & Downloads".
Select Windows 7 against Operating System on the right.
Click the blue "ZIP" button against "Easy Display Manager"

I've attached a photo of the empty key brackets. Attaching these keys should be easy enough but they just won't clip in at all, tried various methods. We can't find enough info on the brackets, so wondered if anyone knows if there is a piece is missing, which may explain why the keys won't...

down for months
This computer got a virus several months ago. It redirects the browser and doesn't allow me to do a lot of things, so I got frustrated back then and stuck it in the closet. I fired it up this morning, deleted a bunch of programs, and decided to give it another try. Here's the DDS Log: . DDS...
