SOURCE: Function Buttons are not working in conjunction with (FN) Key for Screen light adjustment and other features.

As far I know FN keys are related with specific motherboard drivers.
Thoshiba recovery cd/dvd during restore/re-install, loads all toshiba drivers and utilities for operating fn keys.
If the operative system loaded in the laptop is no OEM then you will have this problem, and in order to fix it you must:
First install the operative system (clean install)
Second install: chipset drivers. This drivers instructs the operative system how to detect specific hardware. Must be installed in first order.
Third: install drivers (ethernet card, audio, video controller, toshiba utilities, etc). At this point verify all FN keys ( check display settings, stand by/ hybernation, etc).
four: Load all software needed (microsoft office, etc).

I hope this help to solve your problem

Just download this :) It will fix your problem. If it doesn't work, just search for Toshiba Value Added Package Vista/XP (that depends on what Operative System you've got) and download for your Operative System.

The letter s and D on my laptop act as a volume control function. How do I fix this problem?


Most laptops use a key combination for these kinds of tasks. Things like volume, wifi access, or screen brightness can be modified usually by holding a function key. This key is usually marked with "Fn" and you hold it down while pressing on of the F keys at the top of the keyboard (F1, F2, etc til F12.) to perform the task. Now, some computers have a "function lock" ability. Which basically means you do not have to hold that Fn key to do tasks. Could be that has been enabled. If you provide the laptop make and model we can look into it. =)

I guess you mean the keyboard function act as though the fn key is always being pressed? If so this is likely to be a hardware problem. Look at gently prying up the key (most keys are press fit and can be removed, lift it off as level as you can, should be relatively easy but don't force it!) once off try moving the rubber pad below the key with a small blunt instrument, keep testing other keys while doing it to see if the fn effect ever lifts of, may have got wet or something underneath the key.

Can you help me and let me know what is the FN Function to hold so that I can have my display back again?


Fn, or 'Function', is a modifier key on many keyboards, especially on laptops, used in a compact layout to combine keys which are usually kept separate. It is typically found on laptops, since a full sized keyboard would be difficult to fit in a laptop chassis.


On the Lenovo S10 - to switch the display on and off you must press FN + F2.

My HP Pavillion M70 monitor is saying "video cable connected?" when I try to use the monitor. I am trying to output my laptop to the monitor because my laptop screen is wearing out, but I cannot get it to...


go into the BIOS settings and tell it to use the LCD/Monitor as a display.

or

press fn key+(F5 or F7 or F8) 1x or 2x or 3x.....

Fn key combination. The Fn key is located at the lower left of the keyboard, normally between the CTRL and the ALT key. Toshiba uses Fn-F5 to toggle between the laptop LCD and an external display. IBM or Lenovo uses FN-F7, Acer varies with the model, using Fn-F5, Fn-F3, Fn-F8, Sony Fn-F7, Dell Fn-F8, HP or Compaq, Fn-F4. There are variations with the age of the laptop and not all manufacturers have standardized on a key combo across the whole range, but you can usually figure it out from the little graphics on the function keys that line the top of the keyboard.
