I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I shut down my laptops once every week; they're either in sleep mode or hybernating. My P50 is currenly running Windows 7 Pro with all the drivers installed. I have changed bios settings such that the function keys behave as function keys and only act as media keys (or whatever they're called) when pressed in combination with the Fn key. All hotkeys work as they are intended to.However, resuming from hybernation causes only the reduce brightness key (Fn + F5) to stop performing although all other hotkeys work as they should. Pressing the F5 key by itself works normally; its just the Fn + F5 combination that doesn't work.Anyone experiencing this ?

I bought this laptop used with Vista on it and the LCD brightness control wont work. The Brihtness is set at default level which is tolerable but non the less i cannot adjust it brighter or less. I reinstalled Vista and installed XP media center edition and still cannot get the brightness to adjust. I have installed all of the toshiba drivers for this notebook including the recent ACPI bios and hotkey application. I am currently on XP MCE.
If anyone has any ideas to what could be wrong i would glady appreciate it. I have been at this for a few days now and no answers not even from the Toshiba site.

Thanks

A:Brightness Control Hotkey No Working On Toshiba P105

I assume this is the "push the Fn button and another key" thingie? If so, check to ensure that the Fn key works by pressing it and one of the other functions to see if that works.

Then test the key that you use to adjust brightness - without using the Fn key. Does that key also perform it's designated function?

This'll let you determine if it's an error with the keyboard.

Toshiba Satellite T130- 16w, Windows 7

Several months ago i deleted some of the factory bloatware on my laptop because of slowdown. Though i checked everything was unnecessary before deleting it, i think i might've made a mistake. Since then i've only used mobile internet. Today I came to turn the wireless on the function+F8 key no longer does anything. The little wireless/bluetooth menu does not appear. Wireless is currently off and I can't get it on.

Wireless is turned on in the BIOS. In the device manager it appears as working and enabled. The computer is in every way set up to use it, I just can't get the key to do anything so i can't turn it on. Weirdly, I can turn bluetooth on and off separately, just not wireless.

I've updated the driver for the wireless but the hotkey driver isn't anywhere on the site. I've tried searching it elsewhere but couldn't find it for windows 7. Can I use the XP one, or one from a different Toshiba model? The T130 section just returns no results.

Does it sound like the hotkey is the issue? Does anyone know where I'd find the driver? Is there any way to turn the wireless on without using the function key (there's no switch)? Like through windows? I've been trying to sort it out for 4 hours and gotten nowhere.

Thanks for reading.

Hi

Win 7 requires the Toshiba VAP (value added package) installation to get the FN buttons working.
Visit the Toshiba EU driver page and there you can find the VAP for Win 7 64bit

If you need the VAP for Win 7 32bit, choose another notebook series and use the VAP released for another notebooks.
The VAP does not depend on notebook series.

Hi I was wondering if there was a way to bind a key to increase/decrease brightness of my laptop screen.

I can use the regular FN+Fnkey combo but I am using an external USB keyboard so it would be easier to use a non FN key combo.
I tried reading the scan codes of the FN+F6 key but I couldn't get any, so I can't remap it with a tool like AutoHotkey.

Also, since I have the slider thing in Control Panel > Power Options, this seems doable with a software.

Last note. I do not want a 'screen dimmer' program that does not actually dim the LEDs behind the screen.

Thanks for your input!

A:Satellite S5200-903 Hotkey Function (Fn+F7/F6) Monitor Brightness

For this old notebook models the whole thing works a little bit different as on new models. Now you have one package that contains all necessary stuff for FN functionality.
On old notebooks like your Satellite 5200 you must install several different tools to get this FN functionality, not brightness control only.

So, to make all this easier I recommend you to check Installation instructions for Satellite 5200 and install all missing stuff. Please follow the installation order.

If you still need help let us know.

I must have set a windows system hotkey?

I have f/8 set as a photoshop hotkey...recently when I hit f/8 it caused a semi transparent deep blue screen with two large gear graphics in the center to pop up over my screen.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how I set that.

I do have a macro program, MacroExpress running, but it does not have any setting in it for f/8.

I thought it might have come from windows media player (I'm running version 11) but I cannot find any setting of f/8 in the WMP menus.

I have a Lenovo Edge 2 (one of the Flex Series) that has been working great for the past 10 months.  I usually use the mouse and turn of the touchpad so I don't accidentally move the cursor while typing.  On this machine, the F6 key enables/disables the touchpad.NORMALLY:  a notification comes up briefly on the screen when F6 is pressed (either a diagram of the touchpad, or a diagram with a diagonal line across the touchpad); there is a "live" icon in the lower right hand tray of the display that indicates when the touchpad is disabled.PROBLEM:  Yesterday evening an automatic Windows 10 update occured, and the touchpad could no longer be disabled (the notification came up, but the touchpad worked even when the notifcation indicated that it should be disabled); also, the "live" icon was gone.  TEMPORARY FIX: I uninstalled the Windows 10 update, and resinstalled the Synaptics driver for the touchpad (from the Lenovo website), and everything is back to normal.  I have prevented automatic updates by making my internet connection "metered", but I work in many places, and use different networks, and don't want to have to keep all of them "metered".MY QUESTION:  Any ideas what this update is doing to mess up my touchpad, and how to fix it?

For some reason the system just doesn't seem to know what to do with it, even with Lenovo Hotkey Features Integration installed. This is a brand-new install of Windows 10 on a laptop I just bought (used), so I cannot say whether or not the key worked in the past.

The dispaly brightness buttons on my Elitebook 1040 G2 (F9, F10) stopped working, perhaps with an update but not sure.  I have installed the latest Windows updates and graphics driver, run scannow, DISM, to no avail.  Anybody have a suggestion? OK, I solved it.  I installed the latest HotKey support drivers, which I saw suggested in a recent thread for a different model, and that fixed the issue.

Hello,
I've got a laptop, sony fz21e, which did come with Vista installed.
Now that windows 7 has been around for a while, my friend has maanged to install it on the laptop, since it can use vista drivers.
Ive added uk extended keyboard to the standard list (which was uk keyboard and some other thingy I dont know). I also set default keyboard to extended.
Now if I want to do a letter with a circumflexy, i type ALTGR+ 6, let go of all keys, then press the required letter. this works.

But for some reason, tilde doesnt work (did in Vista). Normally, AltGr + # (tilde is on # key) followed by required letter. Tried using shift, just in case, but no joy.
Tilde works fine by itself (ie shift #)

OK Thanking you all for Any and all ideas
Greeny

A:uk extended keyboard: hotkey for tilda's characters not working

When all else fails, all symbols have ASCII codes that can be looked up - then just use the alt key plus the numeric code for the symbol u want. Here is a link (but there are many)..... http://www.ascii-code.com/ hope this of help. I'm sure you can then setup a rarely used key as a hot key, I just can't remember how to do that - LOL.

Hey, Fellas, I'm back.
Lately when I've tried looking at different folders and files on my hard drives I keep getting "Windows Explorer has stopped working and will restart." It's driving me nuts, I can barely do anything.
Also, same thing with Internet Explorer...I'm getting real sick of Vista's shoddiness..

A:Windows Explorer Stopped Working, Internet Explorer Stopped Working, what DOES work?

For some strange reason, the brightness doesn't appear to be increasing or decreasing anymore. Whether I try it from the FN key function, or the power options and even under settings on the right swipe menu, the brightness on the monitor is not changing. I trying rebooting, but that didn't help either. I'm runing an acer aspire ES1-512-C1W0 with Windows 8.1 64bit 4GB RAM. Any ideas what's wrong?

A:Brightness not working

Well, nevermind. Problem solved I guess. I did a restart instead of a shutdown, and it looks like it started working again. Not sure why it wasn't before.
