Hi

I have just upgraded to Window8 and find that the FN key is not working and I cannot alter the screen brightness or any of the Function keys.

Please advise

You need to install VAP for Win 8

Thank you for the advice. I assume there isn't anyway of just downloading the relevant file that will get the FN key working again, or is it a case of downloading and installing all of the items in this package?

All parts of the package needs to be installed

Hi

What notebook model do you have exactly?
Is it Win 8 upgrade supported?

I mean you can find in this Win 8 Upgrade forum some nice info about supported notebooks. If your notebook is not listed as supported Win 8 model, you will get some problems getting the right drivers and not all drivers are always compatible.

Hi My Laptop is a Satellite L850 - 1D5, which is supported and has been checked and confirmed as suitable and ready for Windows 8

Value Added Package appears to be generic so it should work fine on your notebook, however all those other drivers are for a different model notebook.

You should use the Toshiba Upgrade Assistant to install Win8, it will install all the correct drivers automatically.
