My wireless does not function . before i used to press the FN button and the wireless symbol button on my keyboard. i also used to use the FN button plus volume symbols on keyboard to control volume.i was clearing unused programs from the remove programs section and must have erased something 'cos these functions and the wireless accessability ceased to function.i do not know what though and how to re obtain the functions back.....can you help plese ? The wireless icon doesn't appear and Fn+F10/F11/F12 doesn't change the volume. Plus, there used to appear an icon when I pressed Fn+[any F key here] and now it doesn't. Also, the button to switch the current Power Plan stopped working too. I have no idea if I have uninstalled anything lately, because my boyfriend also uses my laptop...

You often need additional drivers installed in order to use the special functions with a Fn key.
You could download these drivers from the original manufacturers website. Without your wireless connection though you would need to connect your laptop to the router with a network cable. Hopefully your router came with one of these.
You may also find a wireless connection icon in the system tray near the clock in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. You may be able to click this and connect to your wireless from here.
Hi to use the wireless connection 1) check the wifi on your laptop 2) check the wireless on the router gui (grafic user interface) where you have to increase the channels which will help your wireless to connect
for 1) on the laptop there will be a Fn(function key) and F2 /F8 of the any key with the wireless simble - press them both to turn on or off the wireless on your computer
For 2 ) a) connect the computer to the Router with the Ethernet cable b) open the command propt (also called DOS) c) type ipconfig and press enter key will show you the ip details Note down the default gateway number 192.168.?.? d) open IE on the address box type that number - 192.168.?? it will open the belkin page e) somewhere on the network Options you will be able to find the Wireless and channel - change the channel no to ether 1,2,6,9, not more than 11
Click the "Start" button, then click the "Control Panel" icon on the Start menu. This opens the Control Panel window.
the "Switch to Category View" link in the left-side pane of the Control
Panel window if the window is not already set to category view. You
will see the "Network Connections" icon in the right-side pane.
Double-click this icon to open the Network Connections window.
Right-click the icon for your wireless network
adapter in the Network Connections window, then click the "Properties"
link in the context menu. This opens the Wireless Network Connection
the "Wireless Networks" tab in the Wireless Network Connection control
panel. Check the box next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless
Click the "OK" button in the Wireless Network Connection control panel. This completes the process.
on Toshibas, you have to press Fn key+F8 to activate/deactivate the
WIFI card. There might also be a button on the side of your PC you need
to switch on.
alternatively you can do it from the start menu, choose connections and
open it. Right click on the WIFI connection and activate.
You need to install the keyboard utility for the FN key to work. I could not find your model# on the Toshiba site though so double check that. Playing DVDs requires a separate program such as Cyberlink. Disney DVDs should play though if the DVD is working - they have a built in player.
Look on the Function keys on the keyboard (the F1 through F12 keys) Do you see a wireless icon on one of the keys? If you do, then look for a Function (Fn) key on the keyboard. Press and hold Fn, while holding Fn, press the funtion key with the wireless icon (example: the wireless icon is on the F2 key; press and hold the Fn key, while holding the Fn key, press F2, release both keys).
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center
fn + f2 Opens print options window
fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser
fn + f4 Switches the image among displays
fn + f5 Initiates Standby
fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock
fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness
fn + f8 Increases screen brightness
fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD
fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD
fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD
fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD
fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
