Volume control on keyboard no longer working.

So, on my keyboard, like most, I have volume controls. They were working fine last night, however I let my younger cousin use my computer for a while, AND there was an update for my computer this morning before I used it, so I assume one of those has caused the problem.

It's an Asus keyboard, and the model no. is U79K.

It came in this package, as a free peripheral, so I'm not sure exactly what product it is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I game a lot, and having to exit a game just to increase/decrease volume when VOIP begins/ends is pretty annoying.

Thanks =)

EDIT: I have already checked the drivers, by the way.

Bump, just in case it falls from front page overnight.

Hi.. it is a windows 8 issue.. I had the same today!

go to start tiled page
type view local services
select that app
in the services dialogue box find human interface device access
make sure the status is set to started
right click human interface device access and select properties
in general tab, select startup type to automatic then click ok

restart computer...and all should be ok!

Thanks very much! Worked perfectly, didn't even need a reset!

I was just a bit miffed that I'd just got a decent computer, and it'd already started playing up :p  Saved me a lot of hassle, I would never of guessed to try it that way :p
