    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. :D

    Yeah managed to get it sorted. I wasnt deleting the old drivers off first. Once i did and reloaded it worked fine, thank you for your help. Just goes to show that you must delete the old drivers otherwise its a no go!!!
