Toshiba laptop doesn't have function key support Win 8.1

Q: Toshiba laptop doesn't have function key support Win 8.1

Hello.

My Toshiba laptop does not let any of the function keys operate properly. When I press one, nothing happens. I have also tried holding down the FN key, to no avail. I thought this was a Toshiba issue, but after multiple customer support "experiences" who told me that the operating system was corrupted, I think it may be a Windows 8.1 issue. This happened under Windows 8 too. Toshiba has a keyboard driver for this laptop model for Windows 7, but not 8.1. Is this a common problem with Windows 8.1, and if so, can you provide a solution or fix to this issue? (All drivers are up to date and function key support is enabled in the BIOS)

Laptop: Toshiba c55-a5285.

Thank you very much,

wws

Hey there!

I had a problem with the Accupoint, it moved alone, so I desactivated.
But the problem is that I also desactivated the two buttoms above the pad.

Is there a any way to repair the AccuPoint or desactivate it without desactivating the buttons?

I have a Toshiba Portege Z30-A with Windows 10

Thanks!

Accupoint or Trackpoint

I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop, model# M35-S320

I installed Vista (32bit) and my function keys do not work any longer. I do not have a recovery disc and I cannot find the drivers anywhere.

The function keys control the screen brightness, which I cannot use anymore. My screen is not bright enough and there is no way for me to raise the brightness without the use of the function keys.

Does anyone have any suggestions???

Thanks,
Super!

A:Toshiba Laptop Function Key Drivers

Click the link below. The drivers are for the Toshiba M35-S320 Satellite laptop and are provided directly from Toshiba. I used the Display Driver with Windows Vista (32bit, service pack 2) and it worked fine. Once installed, I was able to adjust my screen brightness manually from the Power Plan menu. The power plan menu is accessible via the Plug/Battery icon on the far right of the toolbar > more power options > change plan settings > adjust display brightness (slider).

(NOTICE: I'm not very tech savvy, so if I'm missing any information please be nice). I've been getting a reoccurring black screen problem, where i'll push the power button, get the battery, power, and wifi lights to switch on, but a black screen. It'll take at most 4 tries to turn on the laptop, and for a while the problem gone, but recently I've had to deal with it again.

My laptop is attached to a cooling fan, which is then connected to peripherals like my mouse, a wacom tablet, and a kraken headset. When turning it on, my cooling fan starts whirring, however my peripheral's external lights do not turn on.

Hello,

I have been having problems with starting my laptop. It's Toshiba satellite L650-12Q.
I can start my laptop but when I start it shuts down again in 3 secs and after that I can't start it up again. After some 20 mins I can start my laptop(only when I get the lights that the laptop is charging), however the same thing happens.. Shuts down in three sec. All this time my AC adapter for bettery is plugged in. However, I tired to start my laptop(again, when I get the lights that the laptop is charging) without the AC adapter but I get the flashing ember light that there isn't battery.
I checked out some other sites/forum but they all stated different things like it's the motherboard, or the battery.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

A:Toshiba laptop doesn't start up

Hi when your laptop turns on do you hear the fan spin up at all and then stop or does the fan not start at all?

One thing to try a long shot you may have tried it already is to remove the battery and connect to mains and start it.

When I bought this laptop (Toshiba Satellite) It came with Vista preloaded on it. I was having lots of problems with it and I installed Windows XP on my computer. Now, when I go on MSN or whatever, there isn't any icon for the webcam option there to click on. So I looked online for the driver, but I'm not entirely sure that it is the right one. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A200 -AH3 (Or so it says on the bottom of the laptop) and my webcam has worked when I had Vista. My current OS is Windows XP Professional. So, do I have the wrong drivers, or what's wrong? Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance

Hi I have a Toshiba Satellite L350 Laptop with Windows XP Professional. I have no idea if I am in the right category but here is my issue. I can not activate any of my function keys. This is very problematic because the function key turns on the switch for the laptops WIFI, I can not connect to the internet through WIFI without it. According to the Toshiba forums it is a driver issue related to the TVAP (Toshiba Value Added Package). I have tried downloading the drivers from Toshiba's sight but none seem to open correctly. I think I need to delete the TVAP currently on my laptop but have no idea how to do this. Again my guesses above are summations from 4 hours of reading forums from other sights. I honestly have no idea what is wrong and inherited this laptop from a family member 2 days ago, in an attempt to allow me to work from home to help me with meeting a deadline for work.

In another topic about browsers, one member said concerning their browser of choice, "Speed isn't really an issue. Instead, it's more about the browser's features." I thought that was an extremely interesting point, so rather than drive that thread [further] off-topic, I decided to start this thread, with a comment, and a couple questions, and ask that you add your own comments as to what you expect a browser, your next browser, to do or support.

One necessary ground rule - this is not about which browser is better or not, just what you feel your next browser should do, or support. Features you like, must have, or would like to see. Or even features you don't like.

At first I could deal with not being able to run Windows Messenger Live (well not my sister anyway, since she was the one with the issue on her login), but now I can't seem able to use the 7.5 version.

When it is run, I find it rather difficult to interact with the program. I only bet on knowing that the text will appear soon enough, that my email will be typed in. When I make mistakes entering it, it takes rather long to fix it. It is sort of like writing a letter and then finally looking down at it to see what you have written. Even putting the cursor over the program makes it disappear (but it functions like it is there).
Anything past that, and I get issues just signing in, in a matter of a second. So that means it can't be a firewall (I use ZoneAlarm), because I have checked through that. Anyway, you get the resulting attachments 01 and 02. On the second one is where I am sort of confused. I tried using Repair, but that did nothing since I can do that a million times, and that would make no change. Something must be wrong with the host file. Somewhere along the lines I got what is now in the text file.

I have tried reinstalling the program (even from a new downloaded file), but that doesn't work. Also is a new .NET update on the computer something to think about? This happened a good while after I had it installed.

So how can I resolve this issue?

I wonder if there are any Techheads out there looking for a challenge?

I have a new Toshiba LCD HDTV that I want to use as the primary and only monitor for my Toshiba Satellite laptop.

I want to eliminate the laptops screen altogether.

I would like to know if there exists a connector or some other way to connect my laptops ribbon cable output to a VGA output and then to the HDTV via a VGA cable; or if there is a better way to go?

The screen on this 4year old laptop got cracked so I have to spend at least $75.00 for parts alone and if I go that way I might as well buy another laptop, or use a desktop with a wireless keyboard which will cost more than $100.00 to set up.

Besides, this seems like a kinda cool fix so if anyone has any bright Ideas, please respond.

Hi:
The troubleshooter & Repair tool has stopped functioning since I have updated my Windows version to 2004 (OS Build 19041.1). Could you tell me is there any way that I can get it fixed?
Thanks,

I'm not certain if I'm posting this in the correct forum. Hope so. Very weird problem and have spent 2 days trying to work it out.
I have the Adobe Flash Player ... I have BBC and ITV Player.

A week ago we were able to go to ITV-1, and watch two episodes of an outstanding show called Downton Abbey. This is 24 hours after broadcast and is a catch up service. No problem. But suddenly, when trying to get the third episode, nothing.
It just will not open. Called ITV who suggested that perhaps I should uninstall and then reinstall Adobe Flash. I did. Still no joy. Cleared cache and history and all the things we're always told to do on a regular basis. Defragged ... cleared disk ...
even did a restore to another date. Nothing worked. So I'm stumped. I have broadband and oh by the way ... I see below that it says under system info that my AV isn't updated. Well, it sure is.
Sorry to be long winded but don't know another way to explain the problem here. The site and show in question play on other people's PCs, so the problem has to be here in mine. Funny thing tho, I can still get BBC-TV, no problem.

Any ideas out there?
Thanks
j.

I have Windows 7 and mostly use interest explorer but since I'm having trouble updating the java for my computer and especially for the x64 side of things I thought I'd try my internet explorer. I go to open it and it does nothing but sit there.
Any reason for this would help me.
Thanks

After the UA upgrade I see several errors in the Event Viewer. In the past you could get more info by clicking the Event Log Online Help. You may still do this, but you arrive on an advertisement page of MS. Do they skip this source of information?
