I recently upgraded from XP to Windows 7

When i had XP i could press "Fn + F3" to lower my sound volume, "Fn + F4" to raise my sound volume and "Fn + F10" to completely mute my computer.
So, all the sound related buttons.

When i formatted my computer and got Windows 7 on it. These buttons dont work anymore.
I can still press "Fn + F6" to lower the screen light, and "Fn + F7" to raise it.

Can anyone help me?
Im guessing its related to a driver or something..

Re: Fn + F# sound related buttons aren't working anymore

I have exactly the same problem.. I use Packard-Bell MX65 and can't use almost all the the hot keys when i set up Windows 7 Ultimate x64..

And I can use brightness down and up with fn+f6 and fn+f7 like you.. But no blue screen appears while i'm doing that like I was doing it in Xp.. Fn+F11 also works that turns off the screen.

I thought it's related to the driver ATK0100 ACPI Utility and set up a lot of that driver.. But still it doesn't work.. I hope someone can help us Kasp.

Exactly. No blue screen in the upper left corner.
I can use Fn+F11 to turn off my screen aswell.

I use Windows 7 Ultimate x32 though. And upgraded from Windows XP SP3 x32.
I use a Packard Bell computer aswell.
And all my drivers are up to date (as i know of)

Re: Fn + F# sound related buttons aren't working anymore

When i press Windows key + X a little box pops up, where i can change the sound and battery and all that stuff. Where it says "Windows MobilityCenter" or something..
