Satellite a55 Fn key Drivers

Hi.

Im just after drivers for my old Satellite A55 function keys. They havnt worked since the last time i had to reinstall XP(like a year or so ago, and my recovery disk is in Australia). I dont know the 'sub' model of the A55 (where is the sub model number located anyway?), and have tried a few drivers from the Toshiba site, but with no luck.

Any help would be great. the screen brightness is getting to me!

Thank you in advance

Re: Satellite a55 Fn key Drivers

Hi Jerry

thats the million $ question - which A55!....

i bought my laptop as a factory reco model in Australia, and the only number i had ever seen on the under label was a55; no sub group model number .The problem is that the lablel underneath has almost completely faded away.   Part no : PSA50u-0n(5 or e)02e0

All i know that when i bought it, it had 512k, 40gig hd, 15"lcd,1.4 cel proc.

Hope this helps you help me

Regards,

Mark

Satellite A55-S1063

 

Does that look like it?

 

For the Fn keys, try installing these in this order.

 

   Toshiba ACPI Common Modules for Windows XP/2000

 

   Toshiba Hotkey Utility for Display Devices for Windows 2000

 

(I don't see the utility for Windows XP.)

 

All that stuff is here.
