When I start my PC "Registry Data Not Found" error
appears. If I click ok it disappears and all works well except keyboard extras.
This seems to be related to my Dell SK-8135 keyboard.
The special function keys and volume controls do not work any more.
Is there something I can modify in the registry or is there a file I can download to resolve this.

I am running Windows XP sevice pack 3

If its just stated do a system restore to a time before the problem,

Try System restore in safe mode,


Reboot into SAFE MODE

1/Click Start and then click Turn Off Computer.
2/In the Turn Off Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
3/As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8 repeatedly.
4/Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
5/If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
Note: If Windows launches before you can choose a safe mode, restart your computer and try again
PS/ Sometimes it maybe the F5 key

Safe mode restore worked but has not solved the keyboard problem.

Downloaded driver and it works - many thanks.
