My function keys and volume controls will no longer work. Help.

I'm unable to use my function keys and my volume level is not displayed on the screen as before.  I think that maybe the software controlling the function keys and volume control screen is damaged or not loading.  HELP please.


Download and install HP Quick Launch Buttons on the link below.


Once the installation is complete, restart the laptop.

OSD volume is provided by HP MediaSmart SmartMenu, so if you still don't see display, try the method in the link below and use Recovery Manager to reinstall this app - NOTE: you need at least one other application MediaSmart must be already installed, IE HP MediaSmart DVD, before you reinstall the Menu Smart.

Kind regards

  • FN keys and volume control does not not on Satellite A210-131

    I have a Satellite A210-131 for 3 days now, and the FN keys do not work. The numeric keypad using FN works fine, just the F1-12 combined with FN do nothing. I have the latest drivers and utilities from the website...

    In addition, my touch volume control works quite stupid, it takes less than 20 seconds to set and then its way too hard... I always have to go to the sound control menu to change...

    It's very strange. Usually, if you press the FN key and keep down flash cards must be indicated at the top of the screen. Please try to restart flash cards: start > all programs > TOSHIBA > utilities > restart Flash Cards.

  • I can't turn on my wireless (wifi) on my laptop, even when I tried to press the function key and F8

    I can't turn on my wireless (wifi) on my laptop, even when I tried to press the function key and F8. I have a toshiba laptop, and there is no switch on the side of my computer what is expected? Help someone?


    My older Toshiba has a power switch WiFi.

    My new Toshiba has a WiFi switch above the F keys, although I do not know which varies
    by model. So check with Toshiba support, their documentation online and drivers, and
    ask in their forums where there will be others with the same model.

  • Volume Control Center does not work during a Skype call

    Volume Control Center does not work during a Skype call.

    That's exactly what I got after upgrade to 9.0.2 and 6.3 of Skype iOS

    I use Control Center to adjust the volume in applications. I can't use the volume button of material - it's broken.

  • !! Lenovo M490s function keys and hibernate problem!

    Hello world!

    I bought the laptop Lenovo M490s week last without BONES. I installed Windows 7 Professional x 64 retail.

    First of all, I could not find the software that controls the function keys. After installing each driver and software support page (M490s) my function keys does not except Fn + F1 Fn + F2 sleep has turn off the screen, Fn + F6 disable touchpad and the buttons set. Also no information would display on the screen after pressing the buttons - no level volume and shine.

    After some research, I found and installed Hotkey features integration support Lenovo M490 (without S) page. Each function key is started working, information on the screen also start displaying (volume and brightness level).

    Now, I spotted a huge problem, after 3 or 4 hibernation volume and brightness keys (fn + up, down, left, right) stopping just at work! Fn + F1 to F12 key combinations work normal. Then after that restart brightness and volume keys work again!

    Please help me solve this problem, I can't live without hibernation!

    Thank you!!!

  • S2340T recording and Volume control

    Dear all,

    Hope someone could help me with the couple following elements, as a result of my recent purchase & install a Dell S2340T multi-touch screen:

    1. I am the "habit" of registration of all my products by their respective manufacturers. Apparently however, for Dell products get a seat needs a "Service Tag", and such a label is provided for 27 "or big screens (smaller have only an order # on their packing boxes). So how am I really save this new and VERY expensive monitor of mine with Dell?

    2. I use the S2340T both as a PC to monitor (via the DisplayPort + USB-input connectors) AND as a display of television (via the HDMI connector); then between the two functions is done by selecting the entry in the buttons on the bottom right of the screen. Also, noise produced by the PC is managed by the speakers connected to the soundcard of the PC, while the noise generated by the cable box is managed (via the HDMI connection) by the speakers built into the base of the S2340T. Given the above configuration, here's my question: How can I (at some point) control the VOLUME of the built-in speakers while watching TV (volume / lower / mute), because it seems there is no button on the monitor volume control, and PC (from the keyboard) volume controls affect the speakers connected to the sound card and not integrated in the monitor (despite the USB upstream connection)? Any useful info you could provide on any of the foregoing will be more appreciated.

    Good week end,

    Hi Eric,.

    I regret to inform you that from now on, there is no hardware to control the volume of the built-in speakers of the wireless monitor. There is a utility software Dell Display Manager, which can be used to control the different functions of the monitor. You can download from here after you have selected the correct version of the operating system installed on your system. However, the utility above can also control the functions from within the operating system of the computer. I'm not sure if this app could be useful that you use the monitor to watch TV via HDMI using a decoder or an external source such as audio-video input.

    I want to share that usually when we use the screen to watch TV via HDMI, the TV's features are controlled by the decoder and the monitor receives the signals audio video him. A remote control is provided along - with set-top box to change channels and you should be able to control the volume and mute as well. However, I don't know if the above applies to your situation or not.

    Thank you for sharing your point of view on the volume in the monitor controls; appreciate it. Unfortunately, integration from above function via the driver update is not possible because there is a hardware/firmware integration as well.

  • Satellite Pro A120 - sound works but function button and volume button are not


    Although the sound on my laptop works well, I can no longer on / turn off or adjust the volume by using the function keys or the sound button/wheel (before the laptop).

    I think it can occur after you uninstall a boot program (controls when everything starts during startup).

    Any ideas how I can get it working again?


    Why you n t try to adjust the operating system in the early time before you uninstalled the application?
    I think this might be the best way to get this rerun

    Otherwise, try to reinstall the Toshiba 3.23.1704.U for Win XP controls


  • HP - 15-ac152ur: function keys and sleep mode issues

    Hello, I jusy bought a computer laptop 15-ac152ur and I have the following isuues:

    -Function keys does not work correctly. By pressing Fn + a F (F9 for example) on "key" works as if I just pressed the F key. For the failure, by pressing Fn + F5, while in the results of google chrome in web page update, but pressing on alone F5 does nothing, so I can't adjust brightnrss or the volume using the function keys, which is very worrying, because it seems that I have no way to adjust the brightness without them.

    -Another problem is that after book of sleep mode is not "wake up", it gives me just a black screen and the only thing I can do is to reset.

    I have windows 7 x 64 operating system and I have already installed driver chipset and drivers for both integrated and AMD graphics cards. The only thing I do not installed is updating the BIOS, can it be the problem? And what I can do to solve these problems?

    Thank you in advance.

    Solved the problem with mode 'sleep'. It appeared that it was a bad idea to update the drivers for the graphics card web site AMD Amd, I should have installed only the driver located on the hp support site.

  • Satellite A660 - 1 H 7 function keys and Logo lights went out

    It may seem a little ridiculous to the experience of users of Toshiba laptops, BUT I have my laptop recently and there are a few days, I've lost the lights on my (next to the power switch) function buttons and the 'objective' logo in the lower left corner.

    I don't know if I've done something to turn them off?
    Unfortunately I don't know how to get the lights back on.

    Can someone please help and tell me how (step by step if poss) to get back them.

    Thank you in advance.

    > I don't know if I've done something to turn them off?
    > Unfortunately I don't know how to get the lights back on.

    As far as I know this feature is controlled by Backlight.exe and you can find it in
    Program Files\Toshiba\TBS\Backlight.exe

    It is usually part of the VAP (value added package) to reinstall this package should help you get it working again.
