Satellite Pro 6000; standby function doesn't work after upgrade from W98 SE to XP

Question: Satellite Pro 6000; standby function doesn't work after upgrade from W98 SE to XP

I bought a windows XP cd and installed it over W98 on my Satellite Pro 6000. The standby function does not work now. I probably need some software from Toshiba. What do I need? Where do I find it? What is the installation order?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all

New to this forum so sorry if this has been asked before, I did do a search but couldn't find anything so here goes.

I have just bought some new RAM for my Satellite Pro 6000. When I install it nothing happens the laptop doesn't boot up. If I put the old stick back in no problems. The ram I bought is 512MB unb PC133 CL3 and old RAM is 256MB PC133s. I think bit small to read with these old eyes.

I have been told I might need a BIOS update but can't find one for my laptop running 1.4 at the moment.
Any help would be great thanks Lindsey

Answer:Satellite Pro 6000 - New RAM doesn't work

I think the new RAM is not compatible with the mainboard or notebook.

The manufacture of the new RAM that you said is not known to me so I would buy an other RAM, for example Kingston. Kingston makes high quality RAM and many users here buy Kingston RAM for upgrading her RAM.

By the way: Do you use both RAM or only the new one? Normally if you use two RAM modules you should use it with same specification.

The BIOS update you can find on the Toshiba website but this doesn?t affect the compatibility of the RAM.

I've bought a new notebook " toshiba satellite L50-b-1Q0" and I've changed the SO Win8 64bit -->Win 7 64bit.
I've installed all the drivers and the pc works, but the only problem is the function key.
The driver value added package is installed, but is there another way to resolve this problem?

Thank you

Answer:Function key doesn't work on Satellite L50-B-1Q0


Please check if you can change the settings regarding the special function key mode in the BIOS.
Usually this option allows you to use the function keys without pressing the FN button.

Play around with this setting and don?t forget to save the changes in BIOS.

Furthermore ensure that BIOS is already up to date and the VAP was installed properly.

I bought A200-14E with Windows Vista preinstalled. When i switched to Windows XP i discovered that standby and hibernation doesn't work. When i try to switch to standby mode screen goes black, but on/off light doesn't get "brown" as it should. It's blue. Also from time to time HDD light flashes.

I tried to reinstall Windows couple times but everytime it doesn't work. One time i installed drivers in some specific way and i made it work. But unfortunately i had to reinstall XP one more time, and i can't remember which drivers i should install.

If you had similar problem please write what should i do.

After the Win XP installation you would need to update the BIOS to the XP version.
You should check the Toshiba European driver page. There is BIOS for Win XP.

After BIOS update reinstall you Windows XP, update it to the latest state and install all Toshiba drivers and utilities.

Hi all

I got Win 10 update and noticed, that 3 fingers swiper (to show created desktops) doesn't work after wake up from standby. I downloaded the latests synaptec trackpad driver, but the issue still occurs. I guess it's a driver issue. Would be nice, if it will be fixed in the next driver versions.

Answer:Satellite 1800-911: Standby mode doesn't work properly

Hello Nikola

I assume that the Windows XP SP2 update is responsible for this issue.
Well, in this case you should update the Power Saver Utility.
This you can try on the Toshiba website.

Maybe it?s also important to upgrade the BIOS.
Please check if your unit has the newest BIOS version.
Here you can find the BIOS.
If you decide to update the BIOS please check the update procedure on this unit.

Good luck

Hello, I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-499 PSAA9E.

I formatted my laptop and installed XP with SP3. I downloaded and installed the drivers (in the correct order) for that OS from the and all goes right except Fn+F8. It's supposed that this combination has to activate or deactivate Wifi & Bluetooth. When I have the lateral switch in "off" position and I push the keys, appears a message saying that I have to switch it to "on" position but when I have the lateral switch in "on" position and I push Fn+F8 it does nothing.

Answer:Fn+F5 function and touchpad doesn't work correctly on Satellite A series


What notebook do you have?

I presume your notebook was delivered with XP and now you want to use it with Vista OS.
Please note that you need to install the Toshiba Vista Value Added Package to use all the notebook features.
Very important is the Components Common Driver and the TOSHIBA Flash Cards.
The Flashcards provides the Hotkey function and the launcher function that starts the Hotkey function.
Please reinstall it!

The additional touchpad functionality must be configured firstly!
This can be done in control panel -> mouse

There you should look for the touchpad settings and could configure the touchpad scroll areas again.

I am trying to upgrade memory on my Satellite A100-529 (PSAA2E). The system was delivered standard with 1x512MB DDR2 PC2-4200. I installed 2x512MB DDR2 PC2 5300 and the system tries to turn on 5x with no success.

All documentation says that DDR RAM is backwards compatible. Will the A100-529 only take PC2 - 4200?

Answer:Memeroy upgrade at Satellite A100 - 529 doesn't work

I'm afraid to tell you, that you can only use PC2-4200 Ram for your notebook. According to the manual page 8-3 there you can find three part numbers for Ram to be installed. Looking for those numbers it turns out the PC2-4200 (533Mhz) specifications.

You can upgrade your Ram up to a maximum of 2GB. Hope this helps you.

I guess you can use the external USB mouse.
Connect it to the notebook and uninstall the old touchpad software / driver from the Windows 10 system. You should find it in Control Panel → Programs and Features.

After the touchpad driver has been removed, reboot the notebook and check for Win 10 updates.

Hi all,

If I press and hold the power button the power indicator LED goes off.

Answer:Satellite Pro 6000 doesn't boot anymore


Try to disconnect the AC adaptor and remove the battery a leave the notebook for a while. Wait about 20-30 min, connect all parts again and try to boot up.
If it will not work I assume the notebook hardware malfunctions? Maybe it?s a motherboard fault (power supply electronic) or CPU.
Who knows?. Without any hardware tests it?s not easy to find out what device malfunctions

I didn?t try any update on my A200 but you can try to do follow: install Vista using delivered recovery media. When Vista starts for the first time go into Control panel and there you can find option ?Add/Remove programs?. Remove all stuff designed by Toshiba.

When all this stuff is removed, make Vista upgrade. After finishing Vista upgrade install all Toshiba designed stuff in specific installations order starting with Value Added Package. Check please download page if all this tools and utilities are available.

As far as I know all tools and utilities are designed as ?universal? tools and I can not imagine there is some difference between tools for premium or ultimate Vista version.

DVD player is part of installations image only and I can imagine that upgrade installation has changed something but the upgrade procedure is responsible for that. I do not see any connection to Toshiba.

As I said I do not have upgrade CD but if I find one I will try to test it on my Vista (Premium) preinstalled A200-1CR.

Bye and I hope you will report about your experiences with Vista upgrade again.

Apologies for cross-posting - I originally put this in the Satellite rather than Satellite Pro Series Forum.

I have an old Satellite Pro 6000 which has 256MB RAM in it, and as a result, whilst it tries its hardest, it isn't the quickest of machines.

I want to upgrade the RAM to 1GB which I believe is the max and have 2 memory modules of 512MB PC133 CL3 3.3v, which I believe should work fine.

However, I have tried to install either as a pair or separately, with the 256MB RAM, and when I put the memory in, the PC resolutely refuses to boot up. The power lights come on, but that's as far as it goes.

I have put the original 256MB RAM back in the slot, and it works fine.

Am I doing something wrong, or missing something?

Any help gratefully appreciated.

Answer:Satellite Pro 6000 RAM upgrade problems


> Am I doing something wrong, or missing something?
Of course, you use the wrong or not compatible memory modules!!!

The no-booting after a memory upgrade is a common behavior if the modules are not compatible or do not function.

You can upgrade the memory to max 1024MB (2x512MB) and according to the Toshiba page these modules should run:
PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51)
PC133 256MB (PA3086U-1M25)
PC133 128MB (PA3085U-1M12)

Answer:Motherboard or processor upgrade Satellite Pro 6000

I wanted to upgrade my old laptop as well, but after researching it, I ran into a brick wall.

You cannot upgrade the Mainboard because it is a non-standard design. Laptops don't use standard designs like Desktops.

It's not recommended to upgrade the CPU because the laptops cooling system is designed for that CPU. If you upgrade the CPU, it may overheat, or may not boot up if the BIOS cannot recognize the new CPU.
Even if you install a faster CPU, it wont make much difference. For example, replacing a Pentium4 1.6GHz with a Pentium4 2.0GHz is only 400MHz difference. There is no way you can install a newer CPU like a Pentium-M or a Core2Duo because the Intel Chipset on the mainboard simply cannot support the new architecture.

Your best option would be to upgrade the memory, or sell the laptop and buy a faster one.

As far as I know after graphic card driver installation Standby button should be ?activated?. Hibernation option (support) must be activated manually but standby must be there.

I don?t know which Equium you have but obviously the unit should be cleaned properly. Removing the dust unit will be able to ?take a breath? and cooling fan will not run constantly.

Hi, whenever i push the sleep button on my computer to hibernate or to go to standby, its stops at the screen that says Perparing to go into standby/ hibernation. It just stays on that screen and nothing happens. Does anyone know why this is happening? It was working like a month ago.

I have a Satellite Pro A210 with Windows XP installed.

For the past serveral months i have had the issue where I cannot change the power scheme options. Any changes I made would just go back to default after a certain amount of time. When I recently tried to fix it I noticed people saying to install Toshiba Common Module and Toshiba Power Saver. I have installed both but now my system wont go into stand by mode (when closing the lid on my computer as well as going to start-shutdown-stand by)

The settings seem to be setup correctly in the power save application and i am using the Toshiba Power Saver power scheme. I tried to unistnall Power saver and it still does not allow me to go into stand by. I cannot install Common Module because it does not show up in add/remove programs.

Any Ideas? I am getting tired of having to shut down the pc every time I have to transport it. :)

I have Windows XP Pro on a Dell Laptop with a Belkin wireless card. The network is provided by an Apple Airport (Dual Ethernet).

Anyhow, the wireless connection works fine after a simple re-boot, but when I come up from standby, the connection doesn't work. I unplug and re-plug in the wireless card, and the networking icon comes up for a moment, then disappears. When I go to Start/Connect To, it says it's connected, and packets have been sent and received. When I look at the details, it says I have a proper IP address, router address, etc.

However, when I open firefox, it says it cannot open the page. Same with thungerbird, mIRC, etc...

Anyhow, I'm wondering if this is a known problem, or what the problem is.

Hi all!

I've got a problem on my notebook after service exchange of motherboard.
After I boot up Windows the IR receiver (Microsoft eHome infrared transceiver) works well in all programs, but when the system goes out from standby the IR receiver unloads from the memory and the hardware search doesn't find it.

So the remote doesn't work until I reboot Windows. Windows XP MCE and Windows XP SP2 have the same behaviour. Before the exchange of motherboard I didn?t' have this problem.

What can I do with this?

Answer:Qosmio G30-195 - IR receiver doesn't work after standby

>What can I do with this?
Contact service again and tell them the same. They should find out why this happen.

By the way: can you use other USB connected devices after waking up from standby mode?

Hello i own a Satellite L650-16W and after standby-mode the fan doesn?t start again. So the temperature increases untill a reboot is necessary. After the reboot the fan works correctly again. I own this notebook for about 4 month and at the beginning this problem didn?t appear.

I?ve tried to update the bios but it seems to be the actual version. And i don?t find any options to put the fan manually on again. So maybe anybody has got the same problem or a solution.

Thanks for your help.

hey guys,

I have a problem with my Satellite L550D-11N:
since some time, my standby doesn't work anymore. When I close the lid, it doesnt shut down to standby mode, it just stays turned on. When I then open it again, the screen is black and I don't know what to do. The toshiba power saver settings and those from windows 7 says that the notebook should go to standby when the lid is closed. The only way to reboot the system is holding the powerbutton for more than four seconds and then start it again.

I hope you can help me.


sorry for my bad english.

Answer:Satellite L550D-11N - Doesn't go to standby mode

Hi buddy,

Do you use the preinstalled Windows 7 version from Toshiba or did you install your own version of it?

It would be interesting to know what happens if you press FN+F3 key combination for standby mode or if you choose standby from start menu.
Can you check this please?

Otherwise you should try to load the default settings in BIOS.

My only remaining issue is that the audio doesn't work after the laptop goes to standby. My only option is to restart to get the audio working again. It looks like there is a lot of duplication in my device manager but I'm really not sure what normal is.

Is there any service required to run in the startup for it to work ??

Coz I have turned off many services , but that was a long time ago, this started happening recently

Answer:Search function doesn't work now

Have you checked to see if the search function works in SafeMode?

Have you installed any updates to the current software like your AV program for instance?

Anyway, the first thing I'd try would be to run SFC from a command prompt within Windows XP and see what happens

sfc /scannow

BTW, in reference to the services, I doubt that's an issue. Windows XP will start a service if it's needed, regardless of whether you've disabled it.

I run a Lottery syndicate and have all the Saturday draw history from the start, (Nov 1994). We don?t do the Wednesday draw.I have a spreadsheet which checks the numbers weekly on one worksheet and automatically updates another worksheet which shows the frequency of the numbers drawn. Works fine.I have now today tried to run a frequency check on the EuroMillions draw. I downloaded the Draw History from Camelot and imported it into Excel.When I apply the Function =COUNTIF($b$5:$f$210,m1) it returns drawn numbers 1 to 4 as 0 (zero). I have physically counted each of these numbers and 1 has been drawn 28 times, 2 = 14, 3 = 27 and 4 = 19.The range b5:f210 contain the 5 main drawn numbers. Column M contains the ball numbers 1 to 50.All numbers from 5 to 50 have a frequency number.This is the same Function I am using in the Lottery spreadsheet, except of course, the range is bigger and there are only 49 numbers to be drawn.Also, column A contains the Drawn Date which is in the format yyyy-mm-dd and I have tried to change it to dd-mm-yyyy but it doesn?t like it.Any help appreciated, thanks.

I have indexing on and I’ve had indexing off but this does not effect the results. I’m not sure when this problem first popped up but I assume it was about 4-5 months ago when my step dad changed my network settings because of some bad advice from some tech support who didn’t know what kind of system I had.

Answer:Restore function doesn't work anymore

It sounds as if System Restore may have become corrupted. You can try reinstalling the feature. Here's how:In Control Panel or Windows Explorer, click Folder Options and then View tab
Under Advanced Settings, scroll down and find "Show hdden files and folder." Check the box.
Find "Hide extensions for known files types." Uncheck that box. Click Apply, OK.
In Windows Explorer, find your Windows folder (usually on the C: drive but not always). Navigate to the inf folder and open it.
Find a file named sr.inf
Right click the file and select Install.

Important: This creates a new installation of System Restore, but it will delete any restore points that you had created previously.

kind regards,

If I click on DEVICES AND PRINTERS tab it doesn't respond, but when I click on say my Canon printer's link to MY PRINTER it responds. I ran SFC/SCANNOW and also DISM (Micorsoft actually ran it) and nothing changed. It sometimes locks me onto the Meto screen and I have to reset the PC to get back to my normal Desktop. When it does that non of the Metro tiles works.

Problem solved. After Microsoft technicians tried everything and my PC crashed I decided to just redo. Then I found out that a program called Wisecare 365 that I was running on my Windows 8 PC caused all the problems. It went and deleted registry and other files that windows 8.1 need to operate with. So it's no longer on my PC and so far Windows 8.1 is running fine.

If you are a lucky man then only the ROM module must be flashed again using an special procedure. But this can be done only by an authorized service provider in your country.

Answer:Energy-Function doesn't work correctly (SP6100)

Hi Thomas

I don't have a solution to your hardware-problem but maybe you could stop the machine from going in to Standby mode if you go into the actual powersaving profile and disable it from going into standby? Normally there is a number of rules like "When running on battery and no activity within X number of minutes do [this]" and [this] can be nothing (which would suit you) or go into standby, or go into hibernation.

To get the general problem fixed I would suggest contacting a service partner.

It?s not easy to say why the shutdown function doesn?t work properly.
But mostly the wrong or damage registry entries are responsible for such issues.
You can try to use the system restore tool to roll back the OS to the early point.

Additionally you can check the Microsoft document which describes shutdown problems in Windows XP. It?s useful. Check it.

I've had this problem for quite some time and I think its about time I tried to sort it out.
I have a Toshiba satellite Laptop running windows XP and the latest WMP is my preferred media player.

About a year ago I had a Virus on this laptop that wouldn't allow me to connect to the internet. A friend took me through the steps in the security and the web part of this board and we dealt with the virus.

Ever since the play all function in windows that appears when you have media files in a folder has not worked. When I click play all I see the hour glass briefly but then nothing happens. If I try to select the files I want to play right click and then play all again nothing happens.

I don't get any warning or error messages, its as if the computer is ignoring my request

double clicking on a single file opens it in WMP normally.

I don't know if it is related but when this happened the quick media buttons on the laptop which allowed me to open WMP, play, pause, stop and select next track also stopped working and still don't.

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Play all function doesn't work for music or video files

To fix the file playing issue, try reinstalling WMP.

The buttons need special software installed and running. Try downloading it from Toshiba and reinstalling.

I cannot enter bios, boot in safe mode, etc. However, upon Windows 7 loading I have full function of the mouse. That is until I hit any key on the keyboard, then I lose left click function only. I can still move the mouse, I can still right click with the mouse. I also noticed that caps lock and number lock did not work either.

I figured that maybe the keyboard was bad and so I plugged in a different brand new keyboard and booted up the computer. Everything worked fine. The keyboard worked flawlessly, the mouse had no problems at all.

Restarted the computer to install windows updates, and upon the next boot I once again was left with no keyboard function and then once again no left click function.

These problems only began after a program was uninstalled due to it freezing up during use. (The program was a puzzle game that was purchased and installed from a reputable game website)

I am at a complete loss, and I cannot tell if this is a hardware problem or a software problem or even a virus problem.

Both the mouse and keyboard are USB. Other USB devices work fine, including a headset, a printer, and a scanner.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

On my Portege M200 i reinstalled WXP Tablet 2005. Under human interface devices it detects a wacom serial penn tablet, a usb human interface device, and a hid-compliant device.

But the penn doesn't fucntion at all. When i upgrade to the latest wacom penabled drivers, i get a device "wacom penabled HID miniDriver" but it has a yellow triangle with the error that this device cannot start error 10.

Is my tablet broken?

(apparently you can't say penn on this forum)

Answer:Penn tablet function doesn't work. HID device cannot start


May I ask from where did you download the driver?
It seems the driver is not supported or not compatible.
The code 10 means -> Device failed to start.
You should simply use the driver from the Toshiba page and click Update Driver to update the drivers for this device.

I have problem with FN button. It was worked when the operating system was vista, but after I upgrade my operating system to Windows 7 the function task bar that should appear at the top of screen when I press FN bottom does`t appear!

So, can you tell me how I can solve this problem, please?

My Laptop mode is Satellite A300-29N

Answer:Satellite A300 - Function taskbar doesn't appear anymore on Windows 7


I had the same problem after upgrade to Windows 7 but the solution was pretty easy: I have searched a little bit here in forum and founded out to install the newest Toshiba Value Added Package.

When i bought my laptop one month ago, i got a message about usb hub energy peek (i hope this is the right translation, because i have a Dutch version) everytime i startup from standby.
On the windows site it was told that you can switch off this message, so i did.
But now when i start the laptop from standby, my usb-devices will not work anymore.

Can someone please help me to solve this problem. Or can someone tell me whether this is a hardware-problem which only can be solved by returning the laptop to Toshiba?

Answer:Satellite A100-405: after going from standby USB devices will not work


You need to update the BIOS again!!! There is an new version 5.20 available!!!

This should fix the problems which may occur after updating to Bios version 5.10.

Please come back and report if this procedure has helped or not! Bye

The F11 key where I can switch the sound on/off doesn't work!
The other keys are working fine.

Anybody knows how to give back it's function?

Answer:Satellite Pro C50 A-153: F11 function key does not work


Are you using the ?Special function mode? or ?Standard F1-F12 mode??
The ?special function mode? allows you to use special functions without pressing the FN key.
This means that if special function mode is enabled, you need to press only F11 to turn the sound on and off. In case the special function mode is disabled, you have to press FN+F11 to turn the sound on and off.

You can enable or disable the special function mode in:
Desktop -> Desktop Assist (in task bar) -> tools & utilities -> Function key

But I'm wondering if the F11 button works using other software?
For example: pressing F11 button while using Internet browser (internet explorer) should enable the Full-screen mode. Can you check this?

Maybe the F11 keyboard button is faulty and therefore the sound ON/Off function does not work

The Funtion Key (Fn) does not work on my computer
And I do not know how to solve this problem

It worked once (with all F1, F2 etc) but it doesn't work now



Answer:Function key does not work on Satellite A50-109

If you press the FN-Key, does a LED under the F-Keys (F10,F11,F12) lights up? Did you flashed your bios or changed something on your bios-configuration?

I have a Gateway PC, 5 or so years old, running Windows XP Media Edition.

A few days ago, soon after having installed some Windows updates, my wireless Microsoft mouse and keyboard stopped working. I plugged in a spare PS/2 mouse, and in the bluetooth dialog box removed, added, and reconnected both components. The wireless mouse and keyboard worked, but not for long. I then uninstalled and attempted to reinstall the mouse and keyboard software (except that the software apparently had not uninstalled). This did not fix the problem.

From here on I tried so many things, I do not recall in what order. I did a system restore via Advanced System Care, then tried again using a much earlier date. After a very long wait I was informed that my system could not be restored to that date.

I ran Reimage, which reported a moderately severe stability problem with numerous crashes. This program fixed and replaced files, etc, but got stuck while attempting to reinstall Windows updates (during repairs, Reimage removes Windows updates and reinstalls them afterward, but for some reason this last step has never worked with my computer and I've had to reinstall the updates manually). The computer was frozen and I was forced to turn it off using the power button. When I turned the computer back on, I had no working keyboard or mouse, and again had to use the power button to turn off the computer.

I plugged in a PS/2 keyboard and started the computer in bios, resetting bios to default sett... Read more

Answer:Keyboard has limited function in safe mode, and mouse doesn't work at all

Advanced System Care, which fixed a lot, especially in the registryThe IObit program is just a Registry Cleaner that will repair almost nothing, except your hope - You will never know if it repaired anything -You are better off to remove all Chinese IObit programs and only use proven programs for your computer Malwarebytes and Advanced System Care will not operate correctly on the same system, as both clash with each other Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a proven and trusted program world wide, while IObit is forced on Chinese users as their options are limited.Do you have a Regular Antivirus program that is active and is scanning at all times ??Thank You -

After I switch my Satellite A200-244 from "sleep" or "hybernate" the USB ports do not work!!!!

Answer:USB ports do not work after waking Satellite A200 from Standby

Hi mate,

did you already tried this:

Open start and type Device Manager and then hit enter, to start the device manager. Click the + next to "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and then in that list, you should see some devices called "USB Root Hub". For each of those, right-click, hit properties, go to the Power Management tab, and uncheck the box next to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." Then restart.

Maybe it works. Another workaround could probably be this Microsoft KB document:

Help me!

I have a Satellte T130, yesterday I run an unknown software and after that the BIOS has been changed. Now FN+F* funtion can not work, so I can not use projector. I have already run BIOS update version bios-20100531110112 but it still not work.

Some body who know please help me?

Answer:Satellite T130 - FN+F* function not work


Which unknown software you started exactly?

I assume nothing is changed in BIOS because it doesn?t control FN keys. Therefore you have to reinstall Toshiba Value Added Package. It contains the driver for FN key combinations.

You can download it here: => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

Check also the forum for similar threads, you will find enough!!!

Hello All,

I have a old M30-107 which i recently reinstalled and updated the OS on.
The Function keys controling the screen brightness, volume etc do not seem to be working.
I believe I have updated all the drivers for the laptop.

Is there a specific driver ( ie chipset driver pack) I should be looking at that controls these function keys or should they work with out ant intervention from driver packs etc bios related???

Sat M30-107 XPHome edition SP3

Thanks in advance.. C.

Answer:FN function keys don't work - Satellite M30-107

Satellite M30-107 is a part of the PSM30E series. Is it right?
You could check this number if you would look at the bottom of the unit. There should be a label with such model number.

Go to the Toshiba European driver page and search in ARCHIVE area.

Choose +Archive -> Satellite -> Satellite M series -> Satellite M30 -> Win XP+

You have to download the *Common Module*

This Common Modules must be installed at first!!!
Then you need to install additional software like Touch Pad On/Off Utility, Hotkey Utilities for Display Devices.

These programs will enable the Fn buttons
