     -> System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard -> Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys

    Did you install the software for the keyboard (if any came with it)? Did you run software update to check for anything your computer has to have anything installed for the multimedia key input to work?
