FN keys do not work
Can someone tell me how to fix the FN does not?
The FN feature is not the same under Vista and Windows XP Home edition. So how to help if you didn t write anything relevant in your ad?
What model of laptop do you have?
What operating system is preinstalled?
The laptop comes with the settings and everything works fine. What you do with your laptop?
I have the Macbook with OSX El Captian 2012 model running. The keys f, g, h, j, k, l will not work. Initially, when I hit these keys several times, they used to work, but now they do not completely work. AHT test ran and it is said that there is no hardware problem. I hit the option 5 times, but it would not have helped either. I noticed when allegedly struck ' key and hold, f - l keys work. Please help me solve this problem. Replacement of keyboard looks expensive.
Thank you for being a part of the communities of Apple Support.
It appears from your message that a line of F to L keys do not work correctly on your MacBook Pro. What I would like to, it's please use the keyboard on your Mac Viewer to verify that the keys are not currently recognized on your Mac:
If the problem persists, please reset your memory NVRAM-How to reset the NVRAM on your Mac- and report with your findings.
See you soon.
I have a 2 models of macbook pro 2010. When I first got them I gave each a password firmware, but for some strange reason, one of them the password does not work! So I need to reset it. I read the forums where it says to remove 1 stick of RAM (fact), reset the SMC (which is), then hold down COMMAND + OPTION + P + R hown to reset the PRAM.
Problem is to keep these keys does nothing. The macbook starts just to the top as usual. GRRR! It's infuriating! I've tried everything. I also met several other MacBook & macbook pro in the past when he had the chip of ram only 1 I tried to case.have, 2 chips of RAM, Exchange autour, new ram, and 3 other different types of RAM, still the same problem. I have 2 x 2 GB ddr3 1333 mhz in there. I tried chips to 4 gb and 8 gb chips as well. Why the these keys are not suitable? I just don't understand and it's very frustrating because it works just fine on the other macbook pro and the specification and even the model is exactly the same thing...
I know that the keyboard is OK because the holding CONTROL + OPTION + SHIFT and the power button to do an SMC reset works very well. and Yes, I tried to connect a wired usb macintosh keyboard. These keys do not work either and I know that the keyboard is fine because it works on the imac. I find it confusing that google has no answer for that, surely someone else has had this problem?
You can reset PRAM with Terminal too: http://osxdaily.com/2015/12/16/view-clear-nvram-mac-command-line-osx/
Tab and control keys do not work the browser Firefox (my browser is up-to-date). The buttons work in IE and Chrome, however, until I realized that, I even changed my keyboard for a brand new, hoping that would solve the problem.
Hello arlusk, the problem is probably an extension that is not working properly. Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most of the modules.
(If you use it, switch to the default theme).
- You can open Firefox 4.0 + in Safe Mode holding the key SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
- Or open the Help menu and click on the restart with the disabled... modules menu item while Firefox is running.
Once you get the pop-up, simply select "" boot mode safe. "
If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. To do this, please follow article Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems .
To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.
When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. It might help others who have the same problem.
I just upgraded to Firefox 10. When I manually enter a URL in the address bar, press 'Go To' does not focus, then the Enter key will not work. I have to manually select the arrow "go to" to navigate. Any suggestions?
This could be the extension of AVG safe search. If you have installed, try disabling it. Instructions here: use the extensions to add functionality to Firefox

Both CTRL keys do not work in my Portege A600, I'm updating from vista to win 7 and I can´t use of keys CTRL times.
in this thread talks about it, but have no solution
I contact toshiba support but have no information on what it.
What can I do?
I think that your keyboard is faulty.
Connect an external USB keyboard and check if both CTRL would work.
If both work correctly using the external keyboard, then your internal keyboard should be replaced to solve this problem.
I managed to hide the toolbars, ALL of them. [Alt] brings to the top of the toolbar so that I can change them. In addition, the [previous page] [next page], [home] and [end] keys do not work.
You can have:
- Choose the Mode "full screen" or
- unchecked toolbars
The F11 key activates / turns off Mode full screen or not. Full screen, you have no toolbars, no tab and no bar Add on (bottom).
If unchecked you your toolbars (checked = displayed; UN - check = not displayed), and then do one of the following, then click on those you want to check/uncheck:
- Right-click in the empty space at the end of the tab bar
- Press the ALT key or the F10, the poster Menu bar, click View > toolbars
- Firefox button > Options
- Hold down the ALT key and type the letters of the keyboard V T

Since I installed Tuneup Uitlities my keys do not work.
For example: I can't adjust the sound volume or toggle wlan with the keys F1 - F12.
I already searched in Google, but I can't find a solution. Is it possible that Tuneup have uninstalled or disabled the Launch Manager? How can I install/activate this new?
I can't find something.
Hope someone can help me,
> Is it possible that Tuneup have uninstalled or disabled the Launch Manager?
Never heard talk of launch manager on the Toshiba laptop computer, but of course, the FN buttons are controlled by special software.
I put t know what system you are using and what laptop do you have but for example:
Using the Win 7, value added package system and some utility Flash card access buttons controls the FN.
My FN key does not work.
reinstalling the driver as PVAT have no effect...
Thanks for your help.
Have you reinstalled as Flash Cards Support utility? The FN keys to both tool and value added package.
Again, you should check the site Web of Toshiba Flash Cards Support utility:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com > support & downloads
So uninstall old utility Support Flash Cards and then install the latest version of it.
Check this box!
I ve upgraded my Win7 L670 to Win10. After upgrade do not work key Fn. is it possible to recover the functionality of these buttons in Windows 10.
Each cell function requires special tools and utilities.
In the case of FN keys, Toshiba software controls this feature.
But as far as I know that the Satellite L670 won't get any utility Windows 10 so probably this key will not work running Win 10.
Here the details on the 10 Windows upgrade:

Since then, fn + z key does not work, it says that light keyboard turns off whenver I press it.
How could I solve this problem? It's my OCD tingle.
Thanks for all the replies :D
Strange. Something like that shouldn't happen. I updated my machine, but everything works fine.
I don't know if this will help, but try to reinstall the driver of Toshiba system and function key utility Toshiba.

Try to hit F7.
I'm trying to install Windows 7 64 bit ultimate in netbook Toshiba NB305-105, I have install all drivers, but I can't solve the problem with the WIFI. In particular I don't found drivers for the special key FN to switch on the WIRELESS card.
I tried different retraction, but nothing. All the drivers are installed but the FN key does not work and even for the WiFi card.
Please help me or I come to Windows 7 32 bit?
You can keep Windows 7 64 bit installed, but I put t understand why you need 64-bit OS on a netbook that doesn't support 4 GB of RAM
In any case, the FN keys to install the package of added value and utility to Support Flash Cards. These two tools controls the FN keys. They are not listed for your netbook and Windows 7 64-bit, you can download them from another model as Satellite L500.
I'm pretty sure, they have too much work for your model. :)
After the installation of flash cards, the fn keys do not work now.
I need them!
Have you installed Toshiba Value added too package?
By the way: a little more info about your laptop would be very useful.
