Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 Notebook
I tried using the "power options", both on the battery icon and in the control panel - nothing. I also tried pressing the Fn and F7 key - also nothing. Any other ideas?

go into the bios ( F2 or Delete or which ever key it states when the computer starts up to get into the bios )
Ensure that the FN key is not disabled in the bios, if it is re enable it and try it again.
Otherwise I would call toshiba and see if the warranty covers it still if not you may have to get them to repair it or call around laptop shops to get them to look at it - may require to replace the keyboard .

SOURCE: Fn F6 and F7 stopped
First, try to test the functionality of the Fn key by using it to alter another setting on your laptop. If it doesn't, you'll need to go to BIOS and enable the Keyboard Function option (or alike, depending on your BIOS version).
If the Fn key does work, then try to see if F6 and F7 function at all. For example, if you're using Firefox, the F6 key should highlight the entire URL of the website you're visiting. F7 brings up a "Caret Browsing"dialog box. If both keys function well, then you may want to reinstall the drivers of your graphics card. If nothing happens after the update, and if you use Vista, then go to Start, and right-click on the Computer label. From the popup menu select Manage, and in the new window go to the last listing, where you'll find a sub-entry labeled Services. Click on it, and from the list on the right, look for a service that's called Keyboard shortcuts or alike (sorry I don't remember exactly how it's labeled as I dont use Vista). Double-click this Keyboard service, and from the new windows see if it's started, and if it's set to Automatic run each time Windows loads. Then restart Windows and hopefully your LCD will dimm/brighten.
