I was wondering if anyone could help me. A few days ago, I found the media keys on my keyboard stopped working. I tried the keyboard on my laptop, and everything was ok, so reasone dit must be my desktop. I traced the problem to the HID service- on my laptop it was runnig, on my desktop it was not. It is set to start automatically, and when I try to manually start it, it fails and produces error 1083: "The executable program this service is configured to run in does not implement the service." I am now out of my depth, and have no idea how to remedy this problem. Any suggestions? Any help much appreciated.
