    FN key not working in Toshiba Satellite problem?

  • Lord_Richard Mar 16, 2009

    Its not a hardware issue, the toshiba FN keys arent normal standard FN keys for generic laptops. They need special drivers to run. Its really hard to find them for windows xp if your laptop came with vista. If they work in vista and not windows xp its a driver problem. You might be able to find them online somewhere, but you need the drivers. The keys dont show up as a device in device manager so its not an unknown dveice or a known device, its just an extension of the keyboard and hwo the computer handles those keys' signals.

Hi, the FN key on the laptop is only used like FN+F2 for wireless for example, if you find the FN key and F1-F12 keys dont go work together, the only fix is replacing the keyboard but its quite expensive

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.

Toshiba satellite fn key display problem


Just download this :) It will fix your problem. If it doesn't work, just search for Toshiba Value Added Package Vista/XP (that depends on what Operative System you've got) and download for your Operative System.
