Volume control issue with Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard

Hi all

I bought this keyboard over a year ago, and for as long as I can remember there was an *occasional* issue with the volume control buttons-sometimes there would be a lag between my pressing the buttons and the volume changing, probably about 10 or 20 seconds so long enough to be very annoying but not that big of a deal.

I recently bought a new SSD, so I started from scratch with Windows. I now have a lot less crapware etc wasting resources (my previous installation was 2yo so quite bloated). But now the volume control buttons (and the mute button) don't do anything whatsoever.

Windows, MSE and the keyboard driver are all up-to-date, I have checked that the buttons are enabled in "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center", and every other button on the keyboard works exactly as it should.

Any ideas?
