Uploader Notes

Lots of people have been losing functionality of their Netropa keyboards after the XP upgrade... This is the firmware from HP's website. The only way to find it, though, is to pull it off the firmware list for a Pavilion model preinstalled with XP. (I just grabbed a Best Buy ad and used the model number from a machine with the same keyboard.) This is NOT the one with the volume adjust know but with the volume up/down buttons.

"It took me four downloads to find the right driver to match my keyboard. If your keyboard is HP Model 5183-7399 with seven buttons across the top (Internet.Search.Help.Standby.Vol-.Vol+.Mute) then this is the driver for you."

To find the newest driver, you may need to visit the HP website. Most major device manufacturers update their drivers regularly.

Step 2 - Install Your Driver

Once you have downloaded your new driver, you'll need to install it. In Windows, use a built-in utility called Device Manager, which allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.

How to Open Device Manager

  • In Windows 11, Windows 10 & Windows 8.1, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager

  • In Windows 8, swipe up from the bottom, or right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "All Apps" -> swipe or scroll right and choose "Control Panel" (under Windows System section) -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows 7, click Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows Vista, click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager

  • In Windows XP, click Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager button

How to Install a driver from Device Manager

  1. Locate the device and model that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
