Windows XP Home on the Satellite Pro L650 - FN keys do not work

Hello everyone!

I have a problem with my laptop. I have satellite L650 pro Windows XP and then install drivers and utilities hotkey. But the hotkey buttons do not work. (fn + f5 and others)
What should you do?



I think that the installation of the Hotkey Utility is not enough
As you can read in other forum threads you must also install Toshiba common Modules.

So please check again the Web from Toshiba site and download/install the common Modules. Then retest FN keys.

I hope it works :)

  • Satellite Pro A200 - Fn keys does not work with Windows Vista


    I own a Satellite Pro A200-PSAE7E and a license to retail for Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit Edition (with SP1) is installed.

    Before installing Vista, I have updated the BIOS to the latest version available on the Toshiba site ([]).
    BIOS version is now 2.20 - WIN32 contained in this file: []

    After the installation of the operating system, I installed "Value package" ([]) that contains the "utility Flash Cards". In my understanding, the installation of the "value added package" should allow the use of Fn keys.
    This doesn't seem to be true or not true.

    Here's what's happening.

    -Prior to installation of the 'value-added' package, all Fn keys did not work.
    -After installation of the "value added package", if the process of TCrdMain.exe is running, all Fn keys do not work.
    -If I remove the startup TCrdMain.exe and I restart the PC, only a few keys Fn function (Fn + ESC, Fn + F1).

    There is no way (or I have not found a way) for all keys Fn works.

    Someone knows how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance,


    I am not sure, but it may be because of the SP1. I installed Vista Ultimate on A200 and stuff all listed (drivers, tools and utilities) from Toshiba support page.

    Contains your Vista DVD facilities SP1 or you install on your own? If you install Vista Ultimate Edition (without SP1) and all the stuff on the Toshiba support site order Instructions of facilities.

    Help, please.


    The FN keys should work after install Toshiba common Modules.
    Depending on your other threads you have not installed the common Modules on this laptop and I assume that this is the reason why don t FN keys work properly.

    The solution is simply.
    -Go to the page of the European driver Toshiba

  • Satellite Pro M30 - FN keys do not work

    Sorry to answer in English, but when I write in German get a message that my "message contains profanity.

    I also have the version of the Bios 1.6

    The FN keys do not work. On the suggestion of a technician at Toshiba, I should update the Bios.

    I also have all the problems above. Cannot install because of administrator rights.

    Really desperate for this update. My screen is very dark and the FN keys could solve this problem.

    Thank you

    If the n t FN keys work, I recommend installation of the common Modules.

    You can find this tool on the European driver Toshiba page.
    The M30 Pro Sam seems to be an older model laptop and so the drivers are located in the Archives!

  • Satellite Pro L100 - FN keys does not work

    When I press Fn + F5 to switch between my LCD and an external monitor, nothing happens. Do not see all the windows appear on my screen to display the current mode of the screen (LCD or external) while I'm activating/deactivating keys.

    By pressing Fn + F1 (function of the white screen) also does nothing.
    However, the brightness & related Fn + sound combinations work.

    It seems as if a utility somewhere does not work.

    Please notify.
    Thank you.


    You use Windows XP or Vista?
    For Vista, install the package on the Toshiba value added in.
    For XP, install the shortcut key utilities and utilities Toshiba.

    The two you can find on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Good bye

  • Satellite L40 PSL48E FN keys do not work

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L40 PSL48E, and it works perfectly, except that the FN + no matter what key does not work.

    I've been option on this forum, and I found the solution, which is: download the common Module and the Hotkey Utility.
    However, this only seems to work for Windows XP and I have Vista Ultimate, so this won't work.

    Also, I discovered that FN + F11 seems to work, and I searched on that one too, but it was something like:

    «So, go to "Run" (i.e. run an application) and run msconfig.exe or simply search for msconfig.exe.»

    After the opening of this program, you will have a few tabs and a tab should be as 'start-up', it should be the filename TCrdMain.exe and a checkbox before that. Uncheck the box, and you disable this cardmanager.

    Well, I went to msconfig.exe, but TCrdMain.exe was not on the list...

    Someone knows how to fix this?

    Thanks, Koen.

  • Questions on the Satellite Pro L650-167


    I have a few questions on the Toshiba Satellite Pro L650-167 I'm about to buy. It is the model with an i5 430 m, 4 GB drr3 and ati 5650.

    (1) will be the laptop computer motherboard supports upgrading to a processor i7m as the 620 m for example? I find these on ebay for good prices. Also can you truly open mobile phones L series to replace the processor? You can for example of dell. I know that my warranty will be cancelled. Finally all the i series cpu is all 35w so do not supply problems?

    (2) can easily exchange you the hard disk of the L series, or is it not available?

    Thank you very much!

    Here is my review for you:

    Update CPU is not supported and I don t think that everyone here will be able to provide some specific information on this subject. Any laptop can be opened and removed so it shouldn't be a problem, but if it's reasonable the decision is another matter. If you need laptop with more power than pay a little more money and buy cell phone more powerful, but don t change anything and have it with full warranty time.

    Generally the design on most Toshiba laptops is the same and access the HARD disk is not complicated. All you have to do is to remove the HARD drive cover placed at the bottom. Then you can remove the original HARD drive and possibly improve with a new.

  • Satellite Pro L650 - hard disk is not initialized.


    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L650 and I am having some problems.

    It all started a few weeks ago, I received the dreaded screen black death (windows could start, but then just came up with a black screen and a cursor. After playing well, I thought that a reinstall of windows would do the trick.

    It worked, but none of my pilots have been installed... After much research, I found my Toshiba repair disc. I put in and went to fix it. At half way through formatting the drive, it came with an error, saying that he was unable to delete a specific file, it asked me to reset.

    So I reset, and it came with a screen with "this disc is not initialized, Please initialize now."
    So I pressed Yes, and it resets, it came with the same screen. and again and again.

    So that's where I am. It is only a year old, and already got the replaced disk. I'm desperate difficulty, I don't want it to become a grammage of paper-dear...

    First of all I m wondering why the message appeared saying that the disk is not initialized have you used the Toshiba restore for the OS installation disc or have you used any other Windows disc?

    On the other hand, it might be possible that your HARD drive is malfunctioning, the cursor blinking in the upper left corner is a sign for this fault
    So I recommend you to check the HARD drive. Use a tool like Drive Fitness Test, for example, it helps you to check the HARD disk
    If errors will be displayed so the HARD drive needs to be replaced
