    Thinkpad T60 Volume Controls

    So I installed the hotkey fix for Windows 7 on the thinkpad t60 2007-4au and I still have no volume controls.

    What do you mean volume controls? If changing the volume with the keyboard shortcuts doesn't show the volume bar on screen, you may need to install the "Quick Launcher" (or similar) utility from notebook's download site. If you have no sound at all, you need to install audio drivers. Be more specific so we can help you.

    I have sound but cannot control it via keyboard controls. I can control it by clicking the sound icon. I installed the hotkey drivers from Lenovo but they do not work.

    Did you install the hotkey utility? This should make the key combinations work. It is a driver, although placed in the utilities section.

    Yes I installed it, the fn f2-f12 work but not the volume buttons do not function. I attached an image of the keys.

    Well, I didn't go through all the drivers and utilities for your model, but surely if you find and install the right one they will work. Unless they are faulty. Have you tried to do all Windows Updates? Maybe the required software will be installed automatically.

    You mean that the volume icon remains the same, not indicating off, low, high etc? In this case the controls may affect only the currently playing volume, not the main volume. The volume icon shows changes in the main volume only. I wouldn't worry about that as long as they work.
