Hey I got a DV5-1010us HP laptop and it has some stupid lil light up "quick touch" buttons that include things such as volume control and fastfoward/rewind. The only problem is the only buttons that work in anything except the poorly designed "QuickPlay" application is the volume and mute buttons. I want to get the other buttons to work in players like winamp or even WMP. I asked around awhile ago and the people said sometihng about getting a ascii monitor that will figure out what the buttons are actually doing. I didn't really understand how that would work but maybe you guys do.

Thanks in advance!

Do you have the proper software installed? This is the updated one
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...093&lang=en

Description: This package contains the software that enables the Quick Launch Buttons on the keyboard and the external Easy Access Buttons Keyboard to be programmed for the supported notebook models and operating systems. This application enables menu control of various bezel buttons, such as volume, internal/external display, and mute on/off; HotKeys; and Docked Events.
Enhancements: - Fixes an issue where the rotary wheel for volume that is located on the Remote Control did not work correctly. The actions for increasing and decreasing the volume were inadvertently reversed. After installing this SoftPaq, the scroll wheel for volume now work correctly, increasing volume when rotated clockwise, and decreasing volume when rotated counter-clockwise.

hmm i think i had that... and then i had to uninstall it because the keyboard stopped working...

EDIT: i tried again, the keyboard works fine. everything is the way it was though and i still cant skip songs with the buttons in anything except the stupid "QuickPlay" thing.
