Comments: Awesome PC hardware mod

I've been trying to figure out how to make those volume controls on my keyboard work with winamp, do you have any idea how to do that?

Rachael, I had a dig on the Dell site and found How Do I Install the Dell™ Multimedia Keyboard Application in the Microsoft® Windows® XP Operating System on My Dell™ Dimension™ XPS? It might require registering which IIRC was just name + email.

I haven't tried this since I'm in hospital right now.

When I first got the machine, the volume worked out of the box but at a system level i.e. the "master volume" (mistress volume?) of everything being played, not just say winamp or iTunes. Most multimedia apps have their own separate volume control which just controls their volume before it hits the sound mixer.

Hope this helps...
