I went through your previous questions and comments and what i figured out is, you have either probelme with HDD or OS.
so First step: try to install fresh OS(oeprating system) for that
just insert the recovery disk (it comes along with your laptop when you buy) and reboot you Laptop and once it detects the CD/DVD then hit enter before it crosses 5 soconds and follow the instructions which appear on screen.
if it wont let you to install new OS then it will say something such as: HDD no found etc.
oh! if your Disk is not automatically detected then press F2 and go to Boot sequence and choose CD first.
if your problem still styas even doing these all then better to take to Expert because it's hard to say exact answer withouth looking at your Laptop.
Thanks and Happy NEW year 2009

Is it possible to fix Fn Keys for A15 S129 with Windows 7

Thank you for this clarification.

I think you loaded Windows 7 over top of the Toshiba version of Windows XP. I think you did it like I would have done - run out - get the upgrade - install it fast - heck with the directions.

I think Toshiba inserted a special little routine in their XP version that allows the "Fn" key to operate.

Most computers do not have the special Fn key so there is little need for Microsoft to support the key AND, who is to say that Toshiba has to use the same implementation of the Fn key as other builders? I'm saying there is probably no Microsoft standard for the implementation of this key.

Having said that, I believe you erased the files necessary to run the Fn key when you upgraded to Windows 7.

Here is a link to Toshiba where I believe you will find the answer to your question. I have read several of the documents at this link. There are too many variables in your case for me to point to one exactly correct answer for you.

I hope you find this information beneficial. If I missed the quesiton, please post another comment to this quesstion - I will try again. Also, when you discover the solution, you could post that your trouble was solved, please.

Where to find the cmos battery

Toshiba made it hard to get to this battery. You will have to remove the entire motherboard and it is in the bottom corner, soldered to the board. I just went through this for a friends computer, it was not fun.
