Hi all

I have an Acer 800 laptop with XP. When I use the Fn and arrow keys the volume changes. Previously I could also see green bars indicating the volume as I did this.

I installed yahoo messenger (new beta version) and now I cannot see the green bars although the volume does work. I uninstalled messenger but still no luck.

I know its a minor problem but does anyone know how to get the green indicator bars back. I have been unable to do it so far or find anything to help.

Thanks

This sounds like something proprietary to your machine. It may be a driver function, or it may be controlled by a special function keys program that is specific to your machine model.

Check on the manufacturer's site for a program that controls function keys. What make/model is it?
