    I'm trying to help a friend w/ this problem. I found the solution about a year ago and I didn't copy it down(dumb). I found a solution on Compaq's site but could not find "Hidserv" and "Cpqeasyacc" in the Startup Menu. They are to be checked but they weren't there. Any help?
    thanks

    you wil need to reinstall the software for the keyboard easy access buttons.


    You can probably find it on compaqs website by looking for downloads under his model/serial number.

    It is probably on his/her restore cd also.

    Hello jtoast-
    I found the solution by querering and discoverd that this file:
    cpqeaui.exe needed to be double clicked and it activated the sound volume controls again.
    thanks
