    Last night I resized my Bootcamp partition, reinstalled Windows XP and the Apple drivers for Windows.

    How do I get the volume buttons (F4 & F5) to work when running Windows? I looked in the Windows control panel for sounds and can't find anything. The number lock key works, and all my F keys work when running OSX. I'm on a late 2007 MacBook Pro running 10.5.8

    Everything is working fine except for this one thing. I've installed Windows with Bootcamp before, so I know I figured this out at one point. But now I can't remember what I did. Help!

    I need to be able to use my volume buttons in Windows. Help please. Thanks.

    I'd look in the Boot Camp control panel to see if your function keys are checked off to be your F keys or their special modes (volume, brightness, eject).

    How do I find the Bootcamp control panel when in Windows?

    I do not see it at the bottom tray, and I don't see it when I pull up Control Panels in Windows either.

    I could not see that last night. I will check again tonight when I can.

    Thanks so much for the help. I'll post here again if I still have problems.
