Keyboard With Volume Control Buttons, Headphone Socket

I'm having a hard time finding a keyboard that meets the following criteria:-

- Volume control buttons, including mute
- Headphone socket
- Very quiet
- Not much more than 60 bucks

Also backlight keys would be a plus, but as i'm having a hard time finding those four, i won't be picky.

Media Player Missing Codecs

Recently i tried using my webcam to record videos, and it works just fine but the video won't seem to play. I've had the same problem with other videos too, though my friends send me some and they seem to work just fine. I checked and it said "windows media player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because the intel/ligos indeo interactive 5. 0 (iv50) codec is not installed on your computer. "

The problem is i have no idea what to do. I heard there are codecs you can download for free but i have no idea if it's what i need. Plus i heard downloading packs of codecs rarely works. What do i do?

Windows Media Player - Connect Burner

Why does my windows media player tell me "connect burner" it was working fine before?

Answer:- close your programs and then put a disk in the burner and see what happens. Also:

Try this - control panel - device manager - cd/dvd - double click the device - driver's tab - click. Update drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then right click the drive - uninstall - reboot

This will refresh the default driver stack. Even if drive is not shown continue below. Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues. Your cd drive or dvd drive is missing or is not recognized by windows or other programs:

The cd drive or the dvd drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to windows vista:

Burn Problem With Windows Media Player 11

We were trying to burn some music cd's, however, we ran into some problems. Perhaps you can offer some suggestions as to correct the problems. It is my wife's computer. She has a dell 1545 inspiron with windows xp pro. The windows media player is version 11. Our problem is that we cannot burn an audio cd. We are not receiving any error messages. Our approach is as follows:

1. 0 click and drag songs to the burn list. 2. 0 insert blank cd-r for the audio burn. 3. 0 click on start burn and nothing happens. 4. 0 then, i am unable to get the blank cd from the tray when i press the release button. 5. 0 i have tried several blank cd's. Still no burn. 6. 0 i have to shut down the pc and reboot before i can get the tray to give up the cd. Some additional information. As the pc is shutting down it shows that a microsoft windows update is in progress. I should not think this should cause a problem, however, i mention it for what it is worth. Please offer some suggestions to correct this cd burning issue problem.

No Video Playback In Vlc On New Monitor

I just setup my new 20" widescreen lcd monitor from acer. Awesome picture quality so far and no dead pixels! Hooray!

But when i tried to open several different video files in both qt and vlc, and several differnet formats, there was no video. Just audio and a black screen where the video should have been. These files are good as i just watched some of them on my old dell crt. What's up?

I tried playing wow and some youtube video and they worked. Are there drivers for my monitor? I have a 7600 256 gt. I also tried some video in itunes and they look great! This is on xp. It's like i'm playing a video of just black frames. That's it. It's totally weird. I don't have any wmps. I even tried reinstalling vlc. No luck. Just got even weirder. Tried adding the file i've been testing (mario galaxy video) to itunes and boom! It played just fine.

Vlc Wont Play Second Monitor

Vlc won't play on second monitor. I did a lot of looking around with no success on fixing this issue. Finally after hours of playing around i found my solution to play vlc on my second monitor in full screen. Tools > preferences > show all settings > video > uncheck embedded video

Thought i would post this for anyone else having an issue.

Side Buttons On Mx1000

I used to have a ms optical mouse with a button on each side of the mouse that i could assign to use in games for certain actions. The buttons on the mx1000 wont assign to anything, as in the game doesnt seem to see them. Just the normal left, right, and center wheel buttons are seen in the games. Its not a super big deal as i can just map the keys to the keyboard but i would rather have them being used on the mouse. Just wondering if anyone else has this issue or if there is a way arounfd this.

Mouse With 3 Buttons And A Scroll Wheel

I need to find a mouse that has 3 buttons and a scroll wheel. I do not want one where the scroll wheel is meant to be the 3rd button. I need 3 actual buttons and also a scroll wheel (and if that happens to be a button that is ok i guess). There is some software i use that really needs a middle/3rd button, but it is impractical, annoying, uncomfortable, etc to use the wheel as a button i need to press alot. Any ideas?

Mouse Buttons Non Functional After 5 Or 10 Minutes

This past couple of days i've been reformatting and re-installing windows and tweaking my partition sizes. However, yesterday evening, after finishing loading up windows xp and in the middle of loading my programs my mouse buttons just stopped working for no apparent reason. The cursor movement works just fine but the buttons are non responsive. I reformated and reinstalled windows again this morning thinking everything will be fine but low and behold during my program load up the buttons packed up again after about 5 or 10 minutes. Any ideas?

Keyboard With Normal Function Buttons

My logitech media elite keyboard is getting bad so i'm in the market for a new keyboard. I thought i could just buy a media elite again, but no logitech hassled around with the crappy keys , resized the function buttons and voila: media 600 keyboard. Thanks, but no thanks. I'm done with those stupid proprietary function buttons. Is it just me, or is there nothing decent on the market? I'm looking for just a "normal" keyboard:

Normal sized function buttons
Normal positioned function buttons
Normal buttons (not laptop style)
Around same feeling as the media elite keyboard

(Thing as volume keys / mute / media / mail / etc. : Nice to have. )

I've had a look on the logitech g15 and don't like it at all:-

-Doesn't type as nice as the media elite
-Who needs a illuminated keyboard? I can type blind with all ten fingers and if you slide off the keyboard you can easily find the 'f' and 'j' because they have that ridge. A illuminated keyboard only distracts. The only light should be numlock, caps-lock and scroll-lock. -A display on a keyboard? No, i have my teamspeak client on my 2nd monitor. I've crashed a lot when flying chopper in bf2 because of the stupid randomly positioned and sized function buttons , so normal sized and positioned function buttons are a must-have. Would also be nice if there would be no need to cover 'escape' with the lid of a 35mm film can. I guess i'm not the only one waiting a keyboard that matches above list, so if you found one, please post. Edit: i have no problem with ergonomic keyboards as long as the space-bar is split in two (or firmly connected so i can cut it in two myself. ). The microsoft ergonomic 4000 is a perfect example of a completely failed keyboard because the space-bar doesn't work that well being curved in two directions. http://www.Pc-maeuse.

Wireless Keyboard With Minimal Functions / Buttons

I'm looking for a quality wireless keyboard that doesn't come covered with crap. I don't want additional function buttons, multimedia controls, lcd info screens, knobs, switches, lights, snow cone makers, cheap plastic add ons, spilt board ergonomic crap or anything else other than the standard keys. I would like a wireless version for home use. Does anybody know of a keyboard like this. I guess an extra button or two wouldn't hurt, but i want the bare minimum, any suggestions?

Mapped / Assigned Mouse Buttons On Logitech Mx5x0

A friend and i were arguing about what 'should' be mapped / assigned to the different buttons on our logitech mx5x0 mice. I personally have the left back thumb to double click, front to minimize all, scroll wheel click is alt+f4, button behind the scrollwheel is auto scroll down and the one behind that is restore all, with the front button being mapped to backspace. I use basically the same thing for gaming but when world of warcraft comes out i'll probably make a specific set for it. When i had a 5 button ms intellimouse i had mapped keys much the same way, double click, close, and show/hide desktop.
