Satellite A500 - Flash cards do not work after the upgrade to Windows 7


I have a Satellite A500 PSAM3A 04200E. I recently did an upgrade from Vista to Windows 7. I used my system restore disks to reinstall Vista and then upgrade to Windows 7 using the upgrade wizard.

I find that I can no longer use the Fn key to turn on/off features...

I tried to download the VAP and it works. I also tried-> the beginning-Toshiba-> Utilities > restart Flash Cards. None of them have worked even after a reboot...

Can someone give me some advice on what to do next?

Thank you

Hey Buddy,

If you have already reinstalled Toshiba Value added Package, you also (re) install the Flash Cards Support utility. This tool controls the FN keys and is required for their work.

You can download it from the official website of Toshiba:

    Each cell function requires special tools and utilities.

    Have you installed the latest tools of the Toshiba page? If you install both VAP should be installed first then Flash Cards Support utility.

    In addition, I would try to clean the registry with CCleaner.

    In the forum here is already a few discussions on this issue. You must also use the forum search.

  • FN keys do not work after the upgrade to Windows 10

    Why the FN keyboard does not work after upgrade to Windows 10?

    FN keys are controlled by utilities and special tools of Toshiba. Usually after the upgrade to Windows 10, the parts of the pre-installed Toshiba software must be upgraded to version compatible and support Windows 10...

  • Laptop Compaq CQ58: LAN Ethernet does not work after the upgrade to windows 8.1

    After the upgrade of Windows 8 to 8.1, my Ethernet LAN is no longer in effect. Wireless LAN connectivity is OK. I run the HP Support Assistant and downloaded the drivers for 8.1. Hovever, I don't see a listed 8.1 for the LAN Ethernet driver.

    It seems that you encounter the same problem, I did when I ran the free preview of the W10. I had this error on the card reader.  I have no idea how to solve this problem.

    Is there is no ethernet controller needing drivers in Device Manager, then it is probably the realtek lan adapter that has the number 12 of the code, or it is part of the motherboard that controls the ethernet adapter.

    If you need Atheros bluetooth driver, then this is probably the one you need.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to help you with question 12 code or ethernet.

    IMO, they are insoluble.

  • the Lenovo g500 mouse does not work after the upgrade to windows 8.1

    I recently upgraded my g500 windows 8 for winows to 8.1. But ever since then, my mouse does not work and the keyboard works only after standby. I tried to restore the default settings, but that didn't help. What can I do to fix this?


    If the system is still under warranty,

    I suggest that to call a repairman,

    If this isn't the case, you can try to check the keyboard and the Touchpad connection.

    You can consult this service manual

    Open windows control panel, open programs and features, make entry for HP SimplePass right click and select uninstall.

    When this has completed, restart the laptop.

    When windows has reloaded, download the version of HP SimplePass on the following link and save it in your downloads folder.

    Once the download is complete, open your downloads folder, right click on the installer SimplePass and select "Run as Administrator" to launch the installation.

    Once again, when this has completed, restart the laptop.

    When windows has reloaded, open windows control panel and on the top right, next to the display by: select "large icons".  The new layout, select the HP SimplePass entry and see if you can set your footprint digital log - on.

  • Satellite C55D - buttons left and right touchpad do not work after the upgrade to Windows 10

    Just what the title says. My touchpad on my C55D satellite works well, but click keys do not work. I tried everything I know how to solve this problem and can not understand. It doesn't seem to be any "Advanced settings" anywhere, as I suppose it would be where would be adjustments.

    Help, please!


    The 'old' previous touchpad (Synaptics or momentum) is installed on your laptop?
    You should check this area programs & features

    If so, uninstall this application and restart the laptop.
    Then check if the left and right click touchpad would work again.

    By the way: have you verified the functionality of a USB external mouse? It work correctly?

  • HP Probook 6465b: Broadcom 4313gn does not work after the upgrade to Windows 10

    My laptop is HP Probook 6465b (model 2012) it came with Win 7 Pro pre-installed.

    I upgraded Win 10 and after that a Wi - Fi connection does not work. Then I tried the new facility, but it's the same thing.  I have come back to Win 7, but I would like to upgrade Win 10 if I can get the WiFi adpter for work.  My laptop otherwise works fine and it is not that old so I am confused why this wi - fi adapter gives me grey hair.

    Here is what happened:

    Just after upgading wi - fi works very well until the first stop. After reboot, free WiFi does not work and there is no wi - fi adapter in Device Manager. However, it's there, but it is hidden.

    I tried freezing and relocation of the map and I downloaded the latest drivers from HP Support, but I can't get the adapter to work.

    To get the internet to work I plugged USB wi - fi adapter and suddenly the WiFi Broadcom card started working also. She even worked after unplugging the wi - fi USB adapter but after reboot internal wi - fi adapter was missing again well (hidden and does not), it is too compligated to do each time and she even does not work every time, just every now and then.

    Any suggestions?
