You need the hotkey driver utility.

Find your model on Toshiba's support page here. Then look for the above, if there is no version for Windows 7, one for Vista should work.

Turn wireless networking on


On the top row of keys, where the Function keys are, you should see a second set of BLUE icons on the keys. The F12 key will turn on the wireless. You must PRESS AND HOLD the Fn key (next to the Windows keys at the bottom) while pressing F12.

How to unlock keyboard and mouse pad


Locate the function key on your keyboard (F1 through F12) that has an icon of a touchpad. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it, representing the touchpad and its two buttons.


Press and hold the "Fn" key, usually found in the lower left area of your keyboard.


Press the touchpad function key and then release both keys.

If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "Fn" key down and pressing the touchpad function key twice in a row.


Shortcut Key Method


Press the Windows icon key on your keyboard and hold it down until the Start menu pops up. If your keyboard doesn't have a Windows icon, press "Ctrl-Esc" at the same time.


Use your arrow keys to locate the Control Panel and press "Enter."

Navigate to "Mouse" with your arrow keys and press "Enter" to open the mouse control dialog box. Then, press "Alt-F" together to access the tabs at the top of this box.


Navigate using the arrow keys to "Device Settings" or "Touchpad" or the similar option on your system and press "Enter."


Press the "Tab" key until the "Enable" option or a check box next to it highlights and then press "Enter." Press "Tab" again until you are highlighting "OK," and press "Enter."

Your touchpad will be re-enabled.


hope this helps

Hi, i have a fujitsu siemens v6535 with windows 7 ultimate & my wirless switch doese'nt work, it may be broken, i tryed every way to turn it on from windows(fn+f1 & other ways) ???? how ca


Have you tried turning it on manually? Look on both sides and in front of the laptop for the switch.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

I had the same problem before just when the game failed to install my Fn key suddenly stopped working. What I did is System Restore, this will revert back to the date your system was functioning properly.
To do System Restore on Windows 7 right click on Computer. Then click on Properties. Then click on System Protection. From there click on System Restore.

Hope this solves your problem.

Your Laptop has no support for windows 7, never mind the x64 version.
The last supported OS was XP.
If the FN keys are the only thing not working, you have been very lucky.
You may get some help by searching X64 windows 7 forums

I need an explanation as to the secondary function of the keys on my NB305. Mainly the top row of 'F' keys, but the remainder of the keyboard as well. What do all these little symbols on the keys mean?


F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute programmed functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn key, keys marked with icons execute specific functions on the computer. The function executed by individual keys depends on the software you are using.





1. Sound Mute: Pressing Fn + ESC in a windows environment turns sound on or off. Press Fn + Enter to simulate Enter or the enhanced keyboard's numeric keypad. 2. Instant security: Press Fn + F1 to blank the screen to prevent others from accessing your data. To restore the screen and original setting, press any key or press the Touch Pad. 3. Power save mode: Pressing Fn + F2 changes the power save mode. 4. Standby: When you press Fn + F3, the computer enters Standby. 5. Hibernation: When you press Fn + F4, the computer enters Hibernation. 6. Display selection: Press Fn + F5 to change the active display device. Hold down Fn and press F5 again to change the device. 7. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F6 decreases the display brightness in decrements. 8. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F7 increases the display brightness in increments. 9. Wireless setting: If your computer has both Bluetooth and Wireless LAN functions, you can press Fn + F8 to select which type of wireless communication you want to use. 10. Touch Pad: Pressing Fn + F9 in a windows environment enables or disables the Touch Pad function. 11. Press Fn + F10 or Fn + F11 to access the integrated keypad. When activated, the keys with gray markings on the bottom edge become numeric keypad keys (Fn + F11) or cursor control keys (Fn + F10). The power on default for both settings is off. Press Fn + F12 (ScrLock) to lock the cursor on a specific line. The power on default is off. 12. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (reduce): To reduce the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 1 key while holding down the Fn key. (13. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (enlarge): To enlarge the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 2 key while holding down the Fn key.
