SOURCE: Hotkey Combination Fn - F10 F11 F12 doesn't work

I don't think it's a Windows problem, it will be notebook driver fault. The drivers for your keyboard hotkeys may need to be installed again or enabled. The driver will be on the cdrom that came with the laptop or on a seperate partition of your hard drive, normally in the restore folder, but just install drivers not a full restore.

SOURCE: Fn+F8 hotkey dose not work but the remain FX go fine

Another Alternative is to check your BIOS to see whether or not your Wireless is turned on, if it is not pressent in your BIOS then update your BIOS Driver on the Internet to ver 1.4, Double check your version Compatabillity. Next if the adapter driver is installed, follow the following intructions: start -> settings -> control panel -> system -> hardware -> device manager -> now look for the wireless adapter, see if it is operational or marked with an error -> if it is marked check that it is configured for automatic, and also the resources. Set the configuration manually if so. restart the system.

1) Resource conflict = change resource settings
2) No adapter = check if the adapter is enabled (Y) then see if there is any conflicts (y) correct the settings e.g. resources and see if windows shows that the device is enabled (N) try to enable this device. If (N) then goto BIOS settings to correct it.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: what is the hotkey for Print screen

On PC:
1. Press the "Print Screen" button. This will copy a screenshot (like copying text). 2. Open MS Paint and press CTRL+V to Paste the screenshot. 3. File-->Save As... and save the screenshot to wherever you want, and be sure to change the file type from the drop down menu (or just type yourfilename.jpg if it is an older version.) The default is (or at least used to be, before I switched to Mac) .bmp which will create a relatively large file; too large to easily transfer through the internet.
On Mac OS X:
1. Press Command+Shift+3 or Apple+Shift+3 depending on the age of your keyboard. 2. Find your screenshot on the desktop. It will be titled 'Picture 1.' If I am not mistaken, it will have the extension .png.
If you would like to change the extension to .jpg, go to and search their downloads for a program called Deeper. It is a free app that allows you to modify many hidden settings within your mac. One of which changes the default extension to screenshots.

I have MSI U100 Notebook and I recently installed Windows 7. After installation, the Wifi is always on. The hotkey Fn+F11 is working the green led too but the Wifi card isn't turning off the Wifi.

Have you updated the drivers for your wifi-card?
There is two places you can go
One is the Msi website the other is the wi-fi card manufacturers website.
It could also possibly be the driver for the FN keys thats need to be either re-installed or updated

My Acer laptop says it is not set up for wifi and I can find no wifi switch

Sometimes the WiFi switch is what is called a hotkey or soft switch. As long as the correct drivers are installed. Usually you will have a key that has fn on it. That is the function key. 05d5d4cf-e6cf-41c6-890c-9a5721560f4b.jpg

You will also see a key that will have either an antenna or what looks like parenthesis:

Hold the function key and press the wireless key and it should work.

Restore FN + F8 key to reactivate Wi-Fi on Toshiba Satellite L500

My laptop didnt enable the wifi with the fn+f8 key.
I even reset the cmos and nothing.
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.

How do i disable the f keys

Hi There,
After a few hours of research, it looks like the function or F keys under windows are pre-programmed and there's not a whole lot you can do to change it. There are, however, a few options:
Keymapping software: Usually ships with (and free to download) logitech or other gaming keyboards. The software allows you to reprogram any key on your keyboard to do what you want it to.
Hold down Fn+F11, while still holding F11 let go of Fn. Some laptop users have reported that this turns off Fn keys. Also, Holding down Fn+Scroll lock or Fn+Num lock in the same fashion has had varied results.

How do i turn on my wireless on msi u130?

To enable/disable WLAN, please press "Fn+F11" to execute the device: (then follow below steps accordingly)
Note: there are four stages in all, assumingly both bluetooth and wifi are installed.

First stage : press Fn+F11 = Enable WLAN only

Third stage press : Fn+F11 = Bluetooth On + WLAN On
Fourth stage press : Fn+F11 = Bluetooth Off + WLAN Off

After enabling the WLAN, search the Access Point and connect with it. Now, you may use the WLAN.

Hello there. Follow my steps:
  1. Go to
  2. Select "Download" (if you don't see a "Download" button due to being in another language, select the last item from the main menu and select "English)
  3. Find your laptop model using the wizard
  4. Select your operating system (to determine whether if it's a 32bit/64bit, go to your start menu > right click on "Computer" for Windows Vista/7 or "My computer" for Windows XP and look for a text which says "XX bit operating system)
  5. Go to the "ATK" tree
  6. Download the "ATK Hotkey Utility" thingy and install it.
