*Funky Keys

Posted 10 April 2002 - 12:01 PM

Alright, I have a volume-knob on my keyboard. It worked for a while, but now it's messed up.

When i turn the volume knob up, the comp's volume goes down. When I turn the knob down, the volume doesn't change.

So, I don't know how knob switches work, but If anyone does, or has experienced something like this before, could you give me any tips? (I can screw apart the keyboard no-prob)

Thanks

Pour gasoline all over it.  Now line the edges with chocolate pudding just because.  Now light it.  If you don't like it making you mad, this should fix it!

^^^WTF???

I would say it's more likely a software/firmware issue, not the switch. Check your level controls on the sound card software, but if it turns dow while turning up.... Well, that puts me at a loss...

Like Neo said..... Go get a new one.... :wink:

A. I'm poor

2. I't a fancy MMkeyboard with the volume knob and stuff

D. I'd like to fix it rather than buying a new one.

I don't think the volume knob is the only problem. :smile:

lol, was a quote from Home Alone. :biggrin:

I still think it's hardware related, because it was working fine when i first got it, but now it's a POS. (It's made by HP if you were wondering)
