    Default Aspire 5920 "Media" Keys

    Hi Folks,

    I was wondering if there is anyway to map the media keys on the right hand side of the keyboard to programs other than Windows Media Player? I tried using Acer's built in launch manager but no luck. I'm not a big fan of WMP and would rather use Winamp, it's rather short sided that Acer wouldn't include a way to map them.

    Here are the keys I'm talking about:

    Go to Control Panel -> Mouse -> Device Settings .
    Choose Synaptics LuxPad, go to settings and change whatever you like.
    You can even make the red button glow.

    Thanks Guys, I actually found the solution right here on this forum. I had to install a hacked driver. It appears the driver that comes with the computer is purposely crippled.

    Here's a link to the fix:
