Some FN keys not working on L875D-S7332

[ Edited ]

I am unable to use some of the FN keys on Satellite L875D-S7332, purchased in Nov. It is running Windows 8.

 

My husband did some uninstalling & reinstalling and the keys stopped working.

 

The following FN + F? key combinations do work - F4 (display), F9, F10, F11 (volume & mute)

 

The following DO NOT work - F2, F3 (display brightness), F5 (touchpad), F12 (wifi adapter). I also do not see the flashcard lineup of all FN keys & their function when I press one that works.

 

We did install TC30511200D from Toshiba drivers.

 

Is there a TVAP or something similar for a S7332 that would restore the complete FN keys functionality.

 

Thank you.

Downloads here.

 

 

Amy what happens if you install the earlier version of the utility, before it was rewritten to include 32-bit Windows?

Jerry,

 

thank you for the reply. When I try to install the older version (1.00.25) over the newer (TC30511200D), I get the message that a newer version of the software is already installed.

 

So I uninstalled the newer & installed the older.

 

The screen brightness controls worked once, I had to close the laptop lid for a few minutes, when I reopened it, the brightness controls ( F2 & F3 ) and wifi (F12) do not work, but the other F keys seem to be working.

 

I tried reinstalling 1.00.25 again, no difference, any other suggestions ?

 

I rebooted my laptop and found that the  FN+F2 & FN+F3 keys work for a few seconds after the reboot and then they stop working.

 

Also, I am familiar with the S7332 downloads page link you sent earlier, but there are too many downloads listed and I don't know which ones really beneficial. If there is a critical toshiba driver that I should have installed, please let me know. At present the only toshiba programs listed under "Programs and Features" is the "TOSHIBA Function Key".  I welcome any suggestions.

 

thank you.

 

-amy.

Sometimes resetting the computer has proved fruitful.

 

With the battery and AC adapter removed, close the Power switch for 30 seconds.
