SOURCE: Function Buttons are not working in conjunction with (FN) Key for Screen light adjustment and other features.

As far I know FN keys are related with specific motherboard drivers.
Thoshiba recovery cd/dvd during restore/re-install, loads all toshiba drivers and utilities for operating fn keys.
If the operative system loaded in the laptop is no OEM then you will have this problem, and in order to fix it you must:
First install the operative system (clean install)
Second install: chipset drivers. This drivers instructs the operative system how to detect specific hardware. Must be installed in first order.
Third: install drivers (ethernet card, audio, video controller, toshiba utilities, etc). At this point verify all FN keys ( check display settings, stand by/ hybernation, etc).
four: Load all software needed (microsoft office, etc).

I hope this help to solve your problem

Fn key doesnt work


The Fn key on laptops is only used in conjunction with other keys.

look at your KB you should see some icons that are the same colour as the Fn key eg on my laptop the F5 key has 2 TV symbols, this pressed while holding the Fn key turns on the external display port, perfect for connecting to a projector, other combinations are for turning WiFi off and on, mute, volume control and brightness.

Hope this helps you out. 694d0c27-d03d-4af6-9753-6f2d5ca68581.jpg

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off

The brightness of my laptop is very high


There should be a function key (usually labeled "FN") on the keyboard. There will probably also be buttons with brightness adjustment labels on them. Usually the arrow up/down keys adjust your brightness while the FN key is pressed. The adjustment keys are usually labeled with a picture of the sun with an up or down arrow beside it - almost always in a different color than the letters on your keys [maybe light blue?]. Otherwise you may have to adjust it via software in the control panel. Good luck.
