  2. Toshiba Satellite C670-19F - Windows 10 - Fn key (almost reverse funtioning

    Today I upgraded to Windows 10. Everything seems to be working ok except my keyboard's strange behaviour.

    When the Fn Key is NOT pressed:

    (1) The keys 1,2 are not working at all

    (2) The keys 3,4 adjust the volume

    (3) Space key not working at all

    (4) Function Keys behave normally (F1, F2 etc)

    When the Fn Key is pressed:

    (1) Keys 1,2,3,4 work as nymbers

    (2) Space key works as space

    (3) Function keys are doing nothing

    I tried uninstalling everything related to toshiba as well as pressing Fn for 10 seconds, Fn+Ctrl, Fn-Scroll lock and any other combination I could think of.

    In the BIOS there is no option to disable the function keys.

    In the HWSETUP there is no option as well

    I would really welcome any suggestions. Thanx for your time.

  3. How To Disable Fn key for F1-F12?

    Just press the Fn key... when the LED on the key is on, function keys work as F1...F12; when it is off, the keys work as media keys...

    when holding Fn key while pressing any function key, the key does the opposite to the action it would do without the Fn key pressed

    Try to use the drivers/software that worked with Windows 8.x or even 7. My old laptop has only Windows 7 drivers from the manufacturer, and those still work with Windows 10. *Smile

    Yes, that is an idea.

    Did I mention that I got a scanner from 1997(!) to run under Windows 10? It is working - and that with a 64 bit driver.

    Also Sony might use the same keyboard modell in newer laptops. Maybe you do find a Windows 10 driver, if you look for drivers of newer laptop modells...
