I've had the Gigabyte KM7600 keyboard and mouse combo for a while now, and they've been working fine up until recently, when the multimedia buttons on the keyboard stopped working.

As you can see, the keyboard has several media control buttons, like play/pause, some quick launch buttons for common programs and a volume control knob. None of these now work. The rest of the keyboard is working fine. The drivers are up to date and I've even checked the registry entries for the different buttons ans they're set up like always.

Is there a chance this might be a software issue? So far it's looking like a hardware thing to me, but I'm not sure. I recently installed some Windows 7 updates which have screwed up a few other things, can it be a glitchy update that could have screwed up my keyboard as well?

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: Fixed it. Just had to restart a service called Human Interface Device (HID) in the Windows 7 services.

Thank you so much for the help, Evil.Tim!
