Getting extra multimedia keys to work
I have a sony PS/2 keyboard from when I bought my computer, but I can't figure out how to get the "multimedia" keys to work again. The computer came with win ME, so I wiped the disk and installed win 2000. But I can't get the keyboard driver without installing the "sony" version of win ME. Is there a way to do all this w/o a driver for these keys? Thanks to all who respond!
I suggest you contact Sony and explain the situation ... finding drivers or software for a keyboard like this on the 'Net (or the Sony website, which is a joke) without a keyboard model number and/or the system model number of a proprietary computer like this is nearly possible.
If you'd rather not contact Sony, you can use a program like <A HREF="http://www.copernic.com/winkey/" target="_new">Winkey</A> to create your own Windows keyboard shortcuts. But it won't reprogram the multimedia keys on a proprietary device. You'll need some kind of keyboard manager to do that, and some programming skills.
