hi there recently bought an asus laptop that had been fully recovered and had windows 7 home premium installed on it as fresh and i dont think my Fn key is working properly, i hold it down and press things like the volume control but it makes no differnce, press mute and the same level of volume comes out...

any drivers anywhere i can download and how do i set them up? i fairly capable but not a computer boff

actually my Fn key works for brightness control but not for volume or mute keys at all

no need to swear

look for your model lappy if not above. I mean what's the chances of yours being that model.


anyways get the hot key app/ atk media util/ or whatever the hotkey util is called for your version from the asus download page for your laptop model and install

It's Asus but maybe you need Vtechs


Dodgy .. in what way....? Dunno where you went you have choice of global, Europe, china to download official files from.

Might have been easier at some point to post the model number of your laptop/notebook/PC

its a ul30a, i went through the filters to find that exact model with windows 7 home premium but the download looked pretty chinese, just the Fn keys dont work with the volume controls but they do with others, i can live without so not really too bothered for fiddling though i definately just need to update the drivers on them

the fn-volume keys only work for me when im in high preformance mode. in battery and office mode they dont work.

hi i had the same problem with my asus k40in with windows 7
i solved it by installing ATK Hotkey Utility Driver
you can download it from Asus website

Your in need of the driver.
