Keyboard shortcut buttons...

by odoyle / March 14, 2007 3:33 PM PDT

I have a question about the shortcut buttons on my notebook keyboard.

My notebook is a Toshiba Satellite A100 and it has these shortcut buttons on the left side, including a internet/media player button, play/pause, stop, and skip forward & back buttons( Half way down screen). All of these buttons worked, but now only the internet/media player one works.

Does anyone know how to get them to work again? Also, is it possible to sync these buttons with another audio player, say... Itunes??

Have You?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 15, 2007 1:09 AM PDT

...Like many, have you disabled any "Services" or UNCHECKED any items in "msconfig". The Hotkeys keyboard is usually present in "msconfig". If you've unchecked it there, it won't work.. If you haven't tinkered in those areas, check at the Toshiba website to see if they have any updated drivers for the keyboard.

As to syncing with another program on the computer, it might be possible.. Have you checked at the Toshiba site to see if they have instructions for doing so?

Hope this helps.

I'm in the process of downloading drivers and I've had a couple that have this message pop up,

"Cannot Install: SETUP or INSTALL program filename contains folder information. Use Actions/Checkout instead."

What's this mean?

Sounds Like It Needs To Be Unzipped

In reply to: drivers

I'm guessing that you're having troubles "installing" the drivers, NOT "downloading" the drivers?? Is that correct?

The error you're seeing can occur when a compressed file is trying to be used to install something. Download the compressed file to your computer, then Uncompress the file, and then run the driver installation from the extracted files.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
