One week later.

Still not able to use xbox live gold codes and transfer to yet another person. It took almost a week just for the person to understand that I couldn’t use a code and to transfer me to another person. I have been trying to swap gamertags now for 1 month 1 week. Hope I never need to do anything like this again.

Windows 8 Volume controls not working on keyboard

Why is this set to manual by default? I was wondering why my volume controls only worked when the keyboard is first plugged in and stopped working after shutdown/reboots

My keyboard volume controls suddenly stopped working

If the volume controls on your keyboard stops working, check the Human Interface Device Access service on your computer to make sure it is set to Automatic.

  1. In the Start menu, type View local services.
  2. From the Search Results list, select View local services.
  3. In the Services dialog box, locate Human Interface Device Access. Make sure the status is set to “Started.” If it is not started, click Start the service.
  4. Right-click Human Interface Device Access and select Properties.
  5. On the General tab, in the Startup type, select Automatic, and then click OK.
