I have a MacBook Pro 15" with Mountain Lion 10.8.

I've had the laptop for about 8 months now and I installed Bootcamp probably around a week after I got it. Everything worked perfectly, which was awesome. Installed the support drivers and everything.

Today I booted into Windows and the keyboard functions have stopped working. For instance the keyboard backlights wont work and the volume buttons do nothing. I tried rebooting a few times into mac and back or back into Windows and nothing works.

Anybody run into this sort of things before? Have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like a drivers issue.

Try re-installing the drivers for Windows and reboot. You can download the drivers from here. Please double check that your version of Windows is 7 64-bit or 8.
