Z560 power management problems

There are two problems here kind of

 

The first one was where my volume and brightness indicators would not show up when I used the Fn+Arrow shortcuts to change them. To solve this I tried re-downloading the power management drivers and now the problem has gotten worse.

 

Now, as well as the keyboard and brightness shortcuts not showing up the volume now only goes up in 2% when I use the keyboard and the pre-installed power management software that came with the laptop appears to have disappeared so now the touch buttons above the keyboard that control power options don't do anything at all.

 

Is there a way of getting this software back and making it work properly?

Re: Z560 power management problems

Ok I've had a quick check around and when I installed the drivers that seems to have deleted utility.exe so I have no battery management software running

I probably need to get this back but I can't find how

un-install the current power management drivers, restart your computer and re-install it. it may work.

Re: Z560 power management problems

Can I ask how I uninstall them?

I know I sound kind of stupid but I'm not sure how this is done.

Also I tried to re-install onekey theatre because that had gone as well but it kept on getting an error

Re: Z560 power management problems

Ah, the problem may have been me not restarting after re-installing the drivers the first time.

I re-re-installed them and restarted and now everything is fine.

The onekey theatre is still gone but I never use that so it's not really a problem
