This morning while using my laptop I found that all three of the previously mentioned buttons no longer work. The Thermal Management is now stuck on the efficient thermal dissipation, I am no longer able to switch it to the super silent mode or any other option. When pressing the button the light still dims for a bit, so I know that is working, it is the same with the One Key Theater. I have tried restoring to a earlier system point, uninstalling and re installing One Key Theater and the Energy Management, and I have tried to launch the One Key Theater from the start bar, I am able to launch and close the program, however I am not able to switch between any of the options.
Are there any fixes for this problem? Or is there at least a way to revert thermal management to the normal option so I don't have to constantly hear the loud fan? I will not be able to send the laptop into customer service as I need the laptop for the next 8 months, and I have only had the laptop for less than a month so a hardware malfunction seems unlikely.
Edit: I can change between the One Key theater settings manually, so the only problem I have is the thermal management, if there was anyway to do that through the desktop I would be fine.

I have the same problem. I may have screwed something up as I was poking around though. I deleted the D: partition and played around with my own partitions just before they stopped working. Other than that, I can't think of anything I did that would mess it up. I tried what the first response said by loading the last known good config, but it didn't work.

I have had this problem before and I'm not sure whether what I did was correct or not but it fixed the problem.
Here's what I did:
1.shut down the laptop.
2.remove the charging cable if it's connected.
3.take out the battery and wait for about 10 seconds.
4.put the battery back and turn on your laptop.
I hope that helps.
