First: work on your spelling and grammar, please. If English isn't your native language then I won't worry about it. ;)

Second, are you using a laptop keyboard? External? On my MacBook the brightness keys don't work because they're also function keys, but on my external Apple keyboard they work perfectly fine.

Are you using a non-english Windows XP with a non-english keyboard? Then this thread in the Apple Discussions might help you:
http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=603670&tstart=15

(In a nutshell, on a non-english Windows system, the program files folder isn't called "c:\Program Files\", but someone at Apple hard-coded this path into the Keyboard Tool which causes it to crash on a non-english System :rolleyes: )

edit: You have tried using the brightness and volume keys with the fn-key pressed when using Windows, haven't you?
