Acer S7 problem adjusting volume using keyboard

Hi, I am not sure if I am the only 1 having this problem. I came online to search for solutions to solve my wireless connectivity issues and after I updated my drivers and restarted my S7, I realised I can no longer use "Fn+Up" or "Fn+Down" to adjust my volume. As for adjusting brightness, Home or End is fine, it is only my up and down keys not working with my Fn key. 


Can some1 help?

try a refresh on the windows 8 settings and see if the issue remains.

I'm not sure that refreshing will solve your problem.

However, to answer your specific question, to refresh, in general -



Change PC Settings


scroll down to Refresh Your PC Without Affecting Your Files

continue with the menu.

I have not done this myself so I am not sure if it wipes any files/apps or not. If you are going to do this I strongly suggest a restore point and file backup before proceeding.
