Some Fn keys not working

Friends: I have an Acer Aspire 5920. Some Fn keys are not working. Like the screen brightness keys work, but the volume control keys don't. I re-installed the audio driver and the chipset driver, still the same. Any help how to fix this? Windows Vista Home. Thanks for any help.

Good day


Reinstall the Launch manager application. It will resolve your problem.

Reading the user manual. It says nothing about volume control with Fn key combinations. Instead it says  volume control can be achieved by a small wheel in front the laptop.
