Sounds like you have removed the hotkey functions.

You will need to go on here,

Find your model in the A3000 series and download both of the "Utilities" in the "Other" section and install them. Should be ok after this is done.

I installed windows 7 Professional on my E-Machine eM350 and now i cannot find any wireless connection. I have tried clicking Fn+F3 and still no connection. How can you help?

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.

How do I switch the wireless capability on?

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.

The "FN" key does not function on my Dell inspiron B130

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.

Acer aspire lost internet connection how do i connect

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).

Which function key allows to switch to tv

Hi there,
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...
