Missing HID Module

System Info:
Sony Model VGNFS760/W
Windows XP Professional

None of my keyboard shortcuts work anymore, so I went to the services directory and went to check on Human Interface Device Access, and it's on automatic, but it wasn't running. So, I asked it to start and it couldn't, and brought up a pop-up stating:

Could not start the Human Interface Device Access on Local Computer.
Error 126: The specified module could not be found

I recently sent it for service to Sony for a hardware problem so I'm not sure what happened to it in their care, but I'm guessing it was deleted somehow. How do I fix this?

I'm using a VGN-FJ57GP and the S1 and S2 keys are working for me, though I tried to enable the HIDA and also got the same error. Does the S1/S2 keys on your laptop work? Because I don't think it's a problem with the HIDA - I don't have this problem. Not sure if you've got a corrupted driver though. Might help to check.

Hi Sarah D
Are you in any of these countries ?
United States, Latin America, or Canada. If yes have a look at this
Click on me
This restores hot keys ( I assume that is your problem hot keys not working)
DO NOT use this if you are not in one of the countries listed. If you live somewhere else come back.
