Hello there. Follow my steps:
  1. Go to support.asus.com
  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.

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

You can try a system restore back to a point you remember it working, but most likely you will have to do a bios flash or an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.
