try, right click on my computer icon>properties>hardware tab>device manager>, then look down the list to your keyboard, click + sign, right click on keyboard select uninstal and then reboot notebook and keyboard will self install. If still not working your drivers may be corrupt and will need to be downloaded from the Asus support website.

SOURCE: FN key not working in Toshiba Satellite

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

Sounds like maybe you did not load all of the necessary device drivers when you upgraded. Go to the manufactures web site

and download all of the drivers that are required for your specific laptop.

Go to Start, All Programs, Samsung, then Easy Display Manager Option. Make sure that the "Advanced Volume" is enabled. Somehow that also enables the other functions. I couldn't use my function key for anything but after I enabled advanced volume, the function key was working for brightness, sound, F4, etc.

You also have to make sure that the Magic Keyboard is on.

Hope this helps!

Hello Ashley baby,
to activate wifi on your computer you should have a big blue button in the center of your keyboard, Once activated you should be able to search for wifi network in your area

My Samsung R530 won't boot, just shows blue screen of death on startup, states "A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage blah blah blah Unmountable_boot...

So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My FN keys on Samsung R530 are not working.I bought it second hand with no install discs.Everything else is working.

i think before you bought this notebook the FN key is already broken.. call a technician to fix it. was no sofware driver problem on your notebook.. the problem is very technically.

My laptop britness is not working properly

Is it flickering, or just having promblem adjusting the brightness? If is is flickering, it could be a loose wiring connection. If it is not adjusting brightness, check via using your FN keys, then try clicking the battery icon in your taskbar and adjust brightness through it. If nothing happens, it could be your screen inverter.
