I am trying to change the key controls of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on Windows 7, but when I go to: SettingsGameplay SettingsControls, and I press Enter to change the key configuration, it says "volume down":

I don't have any idea what key that corresponds to.

I have a Lenovo Y470 laptop, which has a Fn key, and if you press Fn + , it reduces the volume. Initially, I thought maybe this was what it was referring to, but it doesn't work.

How can I use the accelerate control? What button does this correspond to?

  • Does your computer have a touch panel at the top? Looking at a picture of it, I can see little dimples there, but I can't tell what they're for.

  • @SaintWacko No there is no touch panel ( at top ). Do you have any idea why it is showing volume down? BTW, as 'Volume down' is pressed i can accelerate without pressing any key. Jan 25, 2012 at 6:19

    Hm. I thought maybe it was constantly sending a volume down signal. Can you turn your volume up, or is it constantly being turned down?

I had a similar issue but had button Home instead of Volume Up. I tried pressing fn + home and home a few times and then it fixed itself and I could switch to WASD.


I was having this problem until I disabled the webcam from device manager, then it worked for me.
