Running Windows 7 as of about a week ago. Was using vista home premium, but I have had a lot of compatibility issues with some of the software that I regularly use when I was on vista, so I figured I would give the Windows 7 beta a try.
Yes, I have installed all the drivers from HP's support site, and that is not the issue. When the comp was "repaired" at hp, they told me that it was indeed hardware related. And I could just get the comp replaced, but I live in the Philippines, so it is a big deal to get things shipped to their repair center in TN. Even though the notebook is still under warranty, I don't really mind that the touch buttons do not work, Because like I said previously, I am a hotkey kind of person, and I would much rather use the keyboard for everything than any touch buttons or a mouse. I would really just like to know if there is any way to reassign shortcuts on a notebook like the function keys or possibly + and - buttons really anything, other than making a shortcut on the desktop to sndvol.exe and assigning it to a ctrl + alt hotkey. I want to actually assign volume up to one key and volume down to another.
