    Hello,

    1) i am asking for your help about installing my Fn keys drivers for my Satellite A200 14 D PSAECE laptop.
    My OS is Windows XP and i have Bitdefender Internet Security 2009 .
    From the download page of Toshiba drivers i got all drivers for my laptop (36 of all - or close), but from the many Xp reinstalations i have done on my laptop, only one time all Fn keys worked when pressing Fn+key and the corresponding icons appeared on my display. I have read some forum topics and i understand there is a problem about the order in which i have to install them ( i already installed them all but it is not working ), so i need someone to tell me which are the drivers for Fn keys only and in which order to install. Please do not forget that i can deactivate my Bitdefender but not uninstall .

    2) the same problem with the preset buttons above the keys - On-Off, Internet, Media Player, Play-Stop-Rewind, i need the exact driver and the order.

    Thank you for your time :)
    Sorry if this question is already answer in the forum somewhere, but i could not get this exact answer.

    Hi

    I remember that the BIOS should be updated to the Win XP version on Satellite A200 series.
    There are two different BIOS versions and depending on the installed (Vista or Win XP) the right version should be used.

    But there are many FN buttons which needs additional installation of different tools.
    For example the Touch Pad On/Off Utility should be installed to use the FN+F9 buttons.

    Furthermore you should install the Controls Driver 2.49.2.5C and Controls 3.22.2701 in order to get the Toshiba Control buttons functionality.

    Hello

    I have checked the Toshiba driver download page and it seems that there are two BIOS versions available – One for Windows XP and the other one for Vista.
    So first of all you should update your BIOS with the right version (XP).

    Furthermore I have founded the installation instructions document for your notebook. This is a list for the recommended driver and software installation order.
    Check this list and it seems that you must install the following Toshiba components to get all special keys working:
    - Toshiba Assist
    - Toshiba Hotkey Utility
    - Toshiba Accessibility
    - Touchpad ON/OFF utility
    - Toshiba Controls & Driver

    Bye

    I looked the download site of toshiba for drivers and there i found in the order u suggested:
    1-toshiba assist
    2-toshiba hotkey utility
    3-toshiba Accessibility
    4-Touch Pad On/Off Utility
    5-toshiba controls
    6-toshiba controls driver

    So only 5 and 6 are not identical, what should i use: 5 then 6, or 6 then 5 ?

    And why does it appear there 2 files for the same purpose ? e.g. "Touch Pad Driver" appears once for Alps Electric and once for Synaptics, how should i know which one to use ?

    Thank you :)

    Generally you should install firstly the driver and then the utility!!!
    So firstly 6 and then 5 ;)

    >Touch Pad Driver" appears once for Alps Electric and once for Synaptics, how should i know which one to use?
    You need both ;)

    NO!!! Only the touchpad needs the both drivers from different companies because both drivers are needed for different settings!

    As far as I know this notebook model uses *Intel* Wlan card; so install just only Intel Wlan driver and ignore the Atheros WLan driver!

    If you would check the “More info” (on the right) on the Toshiba European driver page then you would get more details about the single drivers and tools available on the page.
    The TPS init is not downloadable.
    There are two Toshiba Power Saver packages for download; driver and utility. Install firstly the driver then Utility!

    > i have two : "Controls" and "Controls Driver". Do i install both ? In which order ?
    The same like Power Saver!!! Install firstly the driver then Utility!
