    Default Media keys on Keyboard not working

    Well I've got my old keyboard and mouse going again, as I bought a USB to PS/2 adapter. But the media keys aren't working.

    The keyboard is labtec media wireless keyboard 800 (keyboard only, I'm using a wired A4tech mouse)

    Any thoughts on how to maybe get them working again, Or is this just due to it being too old technology?

    Nope no luck. When I press the media buttons, it just does random things. Like scrolling through my playlist and icons etc..

    Oddly though, the sleep button worked. Even more odd, when I press the calculator button, it thinks it's the F key, but the F key itself is fine. The home button thinks it's the M key. Mute now thinks its D. Volumes up and down think they C and B. Fast foward is P. Play and stop are G and J.

    It's as almost as if they're wrongly mapped, and I've since even uninstalled the labtech software.

    I bought a USB to PS/2 adapter
    By any chance is the Adapter being used to convert usb-PS2 on the keyboard ? If so use it as a USB keyboard, those adapters often muck things up if on a keyboard. If its for the Mouse its usually OK.

    Nope, Both my keyboard and mouse are PS/2 only, otherwise I wouldn't have needed the adapter at all.
