I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

The C40 C10Q is already a tight squeeze with only a 32GB eMMC drive. I therefore did a clean install of W10 and everything is great, with plenty of space to spare now - EXCEPT - some of the function keys don't work such as the blank screen, while outside Windows, using a boot CD, none of them work. Do I need to download a Toshiba Utilities driver? Can't find them anywhere!

But starting Lenovo settings, it asked me to update it. Twice I've done that and it asks again to download updates.

 Hello, I just bought this laptop last week. My past laptop's Function keys work just by pressing them, but on this one when I press it, it does a certain function. For example if I press F1, it mutes the sound instead. I tried to press F1 with FN key to actually use F1. But it didn't work.

Normally I have to hold down the fn key and then a function key in order to do something. For example I need to hold fn and then click F1 if I want to mute the sound. Today all of a sudden, I did not have to hold down the fn key anymore. This means that the ways fn and the function keys interact have switched. I was wondering why this would have happened out of nowhere and if I should be worried? I have looked all over and I definitely have not accessed the BIOS and fn+esc just changes the screen to paper display.How could I have changed the way fn and the function keys have been working?

Hi everybody! I've bought Lenovo M490s notebook one week ago without OS. I've installed Windows 7 Professional x64 retail.First of all I could not find software that controls Function keys. After installing every driver and software from support page (M490s) my function keys just doesnt work except Fn+F1 sleep, Fn+F2 turn off the screen, Fn+F6 disable touchpad and play buttons. Also no information was displaying on the screen after pressing such buttons - no volume and brightness level. After doing some research I've found and installed Hotkey Features Integration from Lenovo M490 (without S) support page. Every function key is started to work, information on the screen also begin to display (volume and brightness level). Now I spotted a huge problem, after 3 or 4 hibernation volume and brightness keys (fn+up,down,left,right) just stopping to work!!! Fn+F1-F12 combinations are working normal. Then after reboot brightness and volume keys are working again!!Please help me to solve this problem, I cant live without hibernation! Thanks!!!

I use the auto scroll feature on my mouse frequently to browse web pages. Before upgrading to win 7 (and ie8) when activated I could scroll using the arrow keys on my keyboard. Since upgrading the arrow keys no longer work. You can only scroll by moving the mouse itself. That function is very important to me as it allowed me to keep my hand off the mouse reducing the aggravation of carpal tunnel syndrome. Any fixes? I am not sure if this is an IE8 problem or win 7 as I only use the function when browsing the web.

Even though the Function Keys are Enabled in BIOS, we still have to depress the Fn key together with the specific function key (f1-f12) when using function keys on host computers accessed through Citrix/gotomypc.  This is a problem we experience only with our HP laptops, not the Acers or Lenovos, or the Dell desktops used remotly.  There is some type of problem in the way HP send the function key signals.  They'll work, but only if we depress the Fn key at the bottom left of the keyboard.  It's a pain.  I called HP and they immediately blamed it on either Citrix or our host computer applications, but the fact that we do not experience this issue with any of the other devices we use certainly indicate it's an HP issue.   Any ideas?

I purchased Dell Inspiron 5558 (with Windows 10) just two months ago (Nov 2015). Everything was working fine. However, recently I started to notice an annoying thing with the function keys F11 and F12 for reducing and increasing the brightness respectively. 

Without using the Fn key (next to Windows key), if I hit F11 it was reducing the brightness and F12 was increasing the brightness earlier - as expected. Now, sometimes, the laptop monitor goes to sleep mode the moment I hit F11 or F12. I have to press the power button again to wake it up. This behavior is very off and on and not consistent.

Did any settings get changed? How to fix this? Please help.

FYI - I have not changed the BIOS settings from default which could be multimedia. I can say this because other multimedia keys in the same row behave normally (even when this strange behavior is noticed in F11 and F12).

Thanks,
Shashi

A:Function keys for Brightness control (F11, F12) do not work as expected

Hello Shashi,
The settings for those FN keys are handled by the Dell Quickset Utility, and later the Dell Command Configuration application, so any changes you would want to make would be done in that application.  
I would suggest going into that application and seeing if you can change the settings.   Putting a system to sleep is one of the functions available so perhaps the configuration has changed.   If you want additional help please click on my Dell Todd username and send me a private message with the Dell Service Tag of the system and I'll see if I can help.   Please keep all discussions and troubleshooting here in this thread so that others, with the same questions or problems, can see what is done to resolve.

You have to install Lenovo Utility to get this to work. Also after manual reinstallation you should install various drivers for components in your laptop from Lenovo website to get the best of your laptop. If you don't want to do that, the better soution than reinstallation is to restore factory image using OneKey Recovery. This will automatically reinstall Windows with all drivers built in as well as various Lenovo applications like Lenovo Utility.

Hello,

I have a Satellite A135-S4527. But, when I got this computer it was without a recovery disk / Vista Reinstall Disk and the Vista OS that was installed was a bloated mess - it was highly used by a individual of lesser intellect. Anyway, I decided to take out that Hard Drive and put in my SSD with Windows XP Professional SP3.

Thats when the problems started rolling in. Turns out Toshiba does not support Windows XP Operating System - I checked the site and was surprised to see a complete lack of support for Windows XP ( even though Windows XP is the dominant OS and was even more so when this laptop was made).

I managed to get the drivers installed, for everything but the modem. Easiest to find drivers were from Intel for the Chipset / Motherboard and the Legacy Graphical Processing Unit. The thing is, I am not sure whether or not these are the official drivers and I am completely lost on the drivers for the modem. Any idea where I can acquire the -latest and greatest- drivers for all my components?

Also there are a few problems,
- Function Keys For Brightness Do Nothing
- Laptop sometimes does not come out of sleep mode

What can I do about the brightness keys? The monitor is sometimes a bit too bright to be comfortable to use. Yet I am having no luck making those keys actually do anything.

Any help appreciated.

A:Satellite A135-S4527 - Drivers needed & Function Keys do not work

Hi

From my knowledge this must be a Toshiba US notebook series.
Therefore I visited the Toshiba US driver page to check the driver availability.
And guess what? I found it but unfortunately there are no many Win XP drivers.

There are Vista and Win 7 drivers available but no Win XP.
I guess that this is everything what is available for Win XP.
So what to do????

I think you should try to install the missing tools which are released for other notebook series; for example A105-Sxxxxxx
Maybe you will get the driver working?

Let?s hope?. Otherwise you will have to use the notebook without such functions?
