I can't seem to access any of my Fn keys, it happened relatively recently after an update. I have tried rolling back via system restore yet there's been no luck. I run Windows 7 Home Premium and under flash cards the disable box is not marked.
I have tried reinstalling the Value Added pack for 64bit and it hasn't seemed to make a difference. I remember rooting through various processes that the program for could be removed to optimize performance, keNotify was one of these .exe files that was recommened as unnecessary, I get the feeling that may be the root of this issue.
Need a fix asap, please and thank you.
It took a bit, but I was able to fix it using the following steps.
1. Uninstall the TVAP via Control Panel... Reboot
2. Open Toshiba Application Installer (Will refer to as TAI)
3. Install TVAP... Reboot
4. Open TAI again, installing the Toshiba Flash Card Utility... Reboot
5. In the Flash Card Settings tick the box next to "Disable all function keys" and click apply... Reboot
6. Open Flash Card Settings and UN-tick the "Disable all function keys" box...
7. GG no re
8. Wait for next eminent computer problem...

None of the TVAP files worked. While they would install, they disabled the function key. However, with TVAP uninstalled the fn key works for everything but controlling the backlight for my keyboard, it will only set on or off and not to timer.

Help is still needed, as I kind of liked having the flashcards as well. When I try to install them via Toshiba Application Installer they won't work. According to the uninstall program list they exist, yet when I do a system search they can't be found.
Replies like peculiar do me very little good. I am seeking a fix, the fact this laptop crashed within a month of obtaining it was one thing, and the bonehead I sent the repair order to first screwed up so I couldn't get repair media as it was well within 30 days of purchase; he just put my email down wrong... It's to the point I doubt I'd recommend Toshiba to anyone especially with replies for support that are completely unhelpful like that, please help?
Edit: To be sure we are on the same page i mean the Fn+F1 etc. combinations for quick access to adjusting brightness, sleep, etc.
