  1. I’ve got a question if you don’t mind how do i get the touch sensitive hot keys to work on the vostro 1310 once i’ve installed win7 64-bit….only the eject keys are working right now?

    1. You need Dell Quickset for that. Unfortunately Dell never listed a version for Windows Vista or 7 64 Bit on this model. They also tend to lock installers which prevent you from taking the version from newer systems.
      For this reason I was asking for an unlocked generic version.

      However others have stated ControlPoint to work which is why I have it listed.
