    N95 keys don't work

    It sounds like a hardware failure. Take your phone to your nearest Nokia Care Point for assessment.

    You don't say what happens when you press the music keys. In the absence of hard info on what the problem is, try the generic advice:

    Backup you personal data using PC Suite, reformat the phone using *#7370#. This is the panacea for software errors cause by data corruption.

    key switches don't work

    I have a Toshiba L750, a similar vintage to your model. The brightness controls F6/F7 and the others are made available when you press and hold the Fn key. For this to work you have to have the Toshiba Flash Cards Utility installed.

    Like yours, my Toshiba model is not officially supported for Windows 10. If you search Toshiba's download site for a version of the Flash Cards Utility suitable for your machine it will be a Win7 or Win8 one, though (like mine) it will probably work.

    I don't know, but I expect no.

    I see no Win10 drivers for the wireless LAN adapter online, but the Win8.1 ones will probably work.

    Yes, Using Flash Cards pressing FN and F8 (the WiFi icon) will turn WiFi on.
    There may also be a WiFi switch on the side of the laptop (see attached)
