Hi,
My laptop didnt enable the wifi with the fn+f8 key.

Then I went to toshiba drivers website and after installing the "thku" "toshiba hotkey utility" the fn+f8 start working and enable/disable the wifi. It now shows a popup windows when I press the fn+f8 key.

Before the wifi led was always off. Windows detected the wifi device but nothing on the wifi available list.
Now the led is always on, starts orange when I turn on the pc and blue when connected.

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off

yes, try use f8 and see if you can go into safe mode and check what is wrong with the dsiplay screen.

try changing the screen mode to by press the "fn" key + F5 and use an external screen to confirm whether the laptop is working properly or not.

I cant find my volumen keys on my acer aspire 5517


The physical volume keys on many laptops are either represented in the function keys (e.g. F1, F2, etc.) or sometimes in the arrow keys (on some Acers).
To use the keys, you need to press the blue [Fn] key (that is usually by the CTRL key) and then press the volume key on the function/arrow key to increase or decrease volume. There should also be a mute key that can be used similarly.

My laptop model is Aspire Acer 4720z. It doesn't have a sound unless you attach headphones or an external speaker


If you press the FN key + F8 key they are the ones that toggles the speakers on and off. There is nothing wrong with your speakers.
