    System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard > "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"

    (is this checked or not?)

    I don't see that option. I have Key Repeat with a slider and a Delay until Repeat with a slider.

    Then show keyboard & Character viewers in menu bar which is checked.

    You do have an Apple Keyboard or a MacBook with a built-in keyboard, right? For me, it shows that option right in between the ones you mentioned, so I'm not sure why it wouldn't for you.

    That's probably the reason.

    What brand is it? There may be software you can install to regain that functionality.

    MacAlly doesn't have drivers for anything later than 10.3 listed on their site. What you downloaded isn't going to be compatible. I've used MacAlly keyboards on several systems, and the volume keys have always worked without any trouble, so I'm not sure why it would have stopped working for you. I assume you tried restarting, and disconnecting and then reconnecting the keyboard?
