FN button :(
 
Hello guys,
I got my first laptop recently. A Toshiba Satellite L45. My FN button was working well all along... and then one day, it just stopped working altogether.

I don't recall installing or uninstalling any particular and I've read elsewhere that this may be due to the drivers... but to my knowledge, nothing with the drivers had been altered. Any solutions to this??

I need my shortcuts so I can continue to practice laziness darnit.:help:

New or used...Version?
 
Have you done the requisite google search for your problem...you'll get faster help there sometime... Toshiba Satellite L45

If new, take it back to the seller and let him worry about it.

If used, reinstall your version of windows in repair mode.

google key input: "Toshiba Satellite L45 "function key" does not work"

This has been an issue with past models and Toshiba offers software to repair it, hotkey.exe or something.
Also there is software in a Driver Package for the keyboard, but they do not appear to offer this as a download for you machine.
It would appear your options are:
1 - if you have a driver disk try reinstalling keyboard driver.
2 - in the device manager, right click on the keyboard, choose properties and choose update driver. (if you had plugged in an external keyboard at some time, try the rollback driver option if it's enabled)
3 - if you have system restore turned on, go back to a date which it was working.
4 - reinstall OS
5 - If it's new call Toshiba, see if they have a download or over the phone fix for it.
6 - Post in forums on Toshibas website.

Good luck

Fixed
 
Thanks for the response guys.
Someone suggested that I do a system restore. And it works now.
Thanks again anyway. And Happy New Year.
