I've searched Hi and Low regarding my issue and eventhough i've read similar topics i have yet to read an exact answer or possible solution to this issue.
I have a Y510 running Vista and for a very long time now the orange volume buttons have stopped working. They worked perfectly for a long time, but then i started to notice explorer.exe crashing and after a while they no longer work. All the other buttons work fine, its just those phyisacal half moon orange buttons that are not functioning.
I have not done anything to fix this yet, i've been using the Fn key to control my volume. I wish now to find a fix, but wnated to tbe clear as to the steps:
1. Reinstall drivers - where are the drivers for this button and is this a simple download and install??? Or do i need to remove the current driver to then install new driver? I don't work with dirvers much, is there a specific location to remove or edit drivers? Assuming it would be as simple as removing a program seems to easy...
2. Tests - is there any way i can test if these are physically inoperable? has anyone had any success replacing these buttons or some part of them (in case it is a physical problem).
Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.
