Here's a link to the Packard Bell support website: http://support.packardbell.com/uk/

Go there, input your model number, and then click on Downloads. Download another copy of the Multimedia Keyboard Driver.
Remove the program from the Control Panel (Classic View)...Programs and Features applet
Go to Device Manager, locate the keyboard and uninstall the keyboard by right clicking on it.
Double click on the file that you downloaded to start the installation process for the new driver. Then just follow the prompts.
