Satellite A130: Fn key not working only not with Vista - only FlashCards


I've been looking around in the forums, but I couldn't find solutions to my problem.

I have a satellite A130 and I am running a windows VISTA family Basic. I have a problem with my fn functions.
I can only use flash on the top of my screen cards, just by dragging my mouse upwards on the top of my screen.

The key works only when I start my computer, at startup, but when the computer is running, there is no other "fn", I could use but my mouse to show my flash cards and use them.

Is there something else I could do?
Thank you

I have same situation, remove the starting windows for the form Flash cards and you have no pictures at the top of the desctop, but keys will work.

  • Satellite A300 - some keys stopped working after downgrde from Vista to XP


    Excuse me for my bad English. I have a problem with my Satellite A 300 PSAG4E-0450. Operating system went from Vista to XP. Easy keys, keys shortcut and illumination stopped working. All the drivers have been downloaded. I tried to find it in Control Panel-> Toshiba controls. I changed to bright power, but this isn't work. If I try to turn it off, I see a window with "choose order".

    What can be wrong?
    Thanks for your help.


    As far as I know, the lighting can be disabled and enabled in the BIOS.
    Check it!

    To shortcut keys, you should try to install the Toshiba controls and utilities hotkey.

  • Satellite M30: FN keys not working not not after installing IE7

    I installed IE7 and noticed that the fn keys no longer work. (Satellite M30)
    I don't know if it was the catalyst because I do not know how long the problem has been.

    The only ones I use often are FN + f6 and f7 +.
    I really need to be able to adjust the brightness of the screen. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.


    First lights up the screen can be changed also in the Toshiba Power Saver utility.

    But it s very strange that, after the IE7 update the FN keys stopped working. I installed the IE7 on my laptop, and the FN keys still work very well.

    So maybe it of a simply wrung something in the registry. Who knows?  :|
    I recommend reinstalling the common Modules.

    Maybe it helps!

  • Satellite M40 - FN key not working not not on XP

    Hello world.

    I have a Satellite M40 (which is M43 in Australia) model number: PSM43A - 1100H, running on an XP Home Edition.
    The FN key is works but doesn't work don't not with others (F6, F7, F8 for the brightness of the screen and wireless).

    I'd appreciate any help.
    Thanks in advance.

    See you soon


    I think you should visit the Web from Toshiba site and reinstall all the FN keys tools. Therefore, you must download and install Hotkey Utility and Toshiba common Modules, they should be accountable for the function FN key.

  • Satellite A350 - FN keys not working do not after Windows 7 installation

    Sorry for my bad English, I'm Portugal forum and I did not have very good English.

    1 I have installed Windows 7 on my pc, installed the 7 drivers and FN had to give. However, I had another problem and had to format the pc again, now just reinstall and feature not the FN.

    2 without the drive feature which is FN + F6/F7 brightness works. But with the player not install anything. It seems that they are in conflict.

    3 the bar at the top of the screen that seemed more is displayed. But if I'm at the start-> all programs-> TOSHIBA-> Utilities-> settings for TOSHIBA E-cards. With it's open, press 'Allow the mouse to show the cards' at the top, they appear as hidden. But just gives me not at all, I want to give to the FN.

    Anyone know how this is resolved? He gave me a huge way and even tried everything, everything has been installed, there is nothing to block the FN key? A feature that blocks this key? Please help me.

    My PC as it says in the title is Toshiba Satellite A350D PSALME 10Y...


    You must install VAP (value added package) and Flash memory card Support utility.
    Since these two tools are not related to a specific model laptop, try the tools available for Satellite L500 series.
    I tried and it worked!

  • Satellite P850 - FN keys not working not

    I recently bought a PC Toshiba laptop p850/049 and reformatted it for windows 7 64 x (from windows 8). After installing all the software Toshiba etc. everything worked fine but recently I noticed that the special function keys have stopped working. They certainly worked after I reformatted the computer because I remember the first time annoyed that whenever I went to refresh a webpage (f5) it would pass the trackpad as I was not familiar with the new configuration.

    I thought that the problem may be due to software "Logitech setpoint" I installed but I uninstalled since and the problem remains. Then I tried to uninstall and then reinstall the added value of packet and HW installation software and then check all card flash/keyboard settings.

    Then I tried to check the BIOS setting with no luck. No matter what setting I put it to the special keys do not work. When I "special function keys" value and press function buttons, the keypad lights up but nothing happens, in this mode if I press fn + function keys, they work in their normal mode IE spell check or refresh or full screen, etc. When I have it value "normal f1-12 function keys" the same applies to this f5 refreshes successfully, but fn + f5 does nothing. I tried to play with the settings in accessibility and HW set up and flash cards and in the BIOS without effect (it seems that change the HW set up and bios configuration change from the other and vice versa).

    It seems no matter what I set it on the keyboard seems to be impossible to access the option special function keys. I recently got sp1 under win 7 x 64, this could be a part of the problem? I'm not entirely sure when keys doesn't work but I don't know they worked after reformatting to windows 7.

    any help would be appreciated


    Did you restart the utility of Flash Cards, which can be found under:
    All programs-> Toshiba-> restart Flash Cards

    In addition, you must also install the utility Support Flash Cards next to the VAP (value added package)

  • Satellite A130/135 completely stopped working

    I have a laptop Satellite A130/135, that completely stopped working. During use, it turned off and became completely unresponsive. Even the lights which show that the notebook is load / connected does not illuminate.
    Does anyone know what is the problem?

    IM distraught about what I can do everything so any help is appreciated.

    I think that it of really not easy to say what could be the problem
    I can only suggest

    Depending on your message, nothing appears on the screen not even if you would not try to boot from the recovery disk or other bootable discs. Is this good?

    You could try a procedure;
    -Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter from the portable computer
    -Wait several minutes (about 30 min)
    -try to boot the machine

    Check it out, but if you will not be successful then a hardware malfunction could be the cause of your problem, and you should ask the local ASP to help him!

    Good bye

  • Re: Qosmio F30-131: remote control does not not with Vista Ultimate


    I just installed Vista Ultimate but my remote does not work.
    I reinstalled everything in the right order as written in the command file install on Toshiba Homepage but its always answers don't not under Vista.
    I can just turn on my laptop when its off the remote control.

    Anyone know what to do?

    (PS: I do not have my Toshiba restore CD for Windows XP MCE)


    You reinstall the remote control manager? This utility enhances support for a remote control on your computer.
    How about Value Added package? There is a new version available. Try to update it too.

    But back to the basics, the Qosmio F30-131 belongs to the series of PQF30E. Did you choose the drivers for this series?

    However, this laptop has been delivered and pre-installed with Win MCE. Can this remote works only with the XP version of Windows Media Center.

  • Satellite A100: FN keys not working not not on Windows XP

    Hi there, Im new to this, so hopefully someone can help.
    Some time ago my hard drive had serious problems and I replaced it.

    But with that I also had Windows XP like some things that I really didn't like about vista.

    Anyway, since then my function keys on the 'F' keys and my media keys on the left side of the laptop are not working, can anyone suggest to me what I can do?

    If it is a driver or something there, and if so, where can I get it?


    First of all, you should check your model number of the laptop.
    The European driver Toshiba page provides drivers for five different sets of Satellite A100!
    In order to choose one that fits!

    If you want to use the FN buttons please ensure that your common Toshiba Module driver has been installed! This is important. In addition the Hotkey Utility must be installed as indicated by the above user.

    Toshiba button near the power button are controlled by the Toshiba driver controls!

    I think that these drivers should help you get the laptop works properly.


  • Satellite R830 - FN keys not working not


    I have a laptop model * R830 *, but unfortunately the FN keys does not work
    I hope you help me

    With gratitude and thanks in advance
    * Fahmi


    May I ask what Windows system you use?
    The FN keys are controlled by special software Toshiba, but it depends on the Windows installation.

    For example: using Win 7, you need to install the package of value added of Toshiba UE driver page.

    Your comments would be appreciated.

    Received this laptop a couple of days and the FN key does not work with the other keys
    I mostly need the WiFi is enabled, but I can't seem to find a way to achieve

    Select all programs-> Toshiba-> Flash memory card Support utility, and then restart the tool.
    Buttons controls the FN of Flash cards and I think this should solve your problem
