Is this the original OS that came with the laptop? Have you restored the drivers that came with your recovery CD?

Usually you have to install the shorcut keys separately and that driver / software has to come from the manufacturer or original CD. I have four or five buttons on my laptop that will not work (allthough Vista says all drivers are working in device manager) because i haven't installed the software and drivers for those shortcut keys. I can't think of the name of them, something like quick keys or something.
