    I have read a few threads in this forum but i haven't managed to make FN + Fkeys work on my A200-1AE after installing Windows 7 Ultimate.
    I have installed the Value Added Package from Windows 7 -32bit drivers and the Flash Cards Support Utility from Windows Vista - 32bit drivers but still nothing.

    Has anyone finally used successfully the FN button of satellite notebooks on Windows 7????

    Where did you download the Win7 TVAP from?

    Maybe a BIOS update would help.

    All the files were downloaded from the toshiba europe drivers site.
    Did you deal with the problem in the past?

    Hi

    The Sat A200-1AE belongs to the PSAECE series.
    The Toshiba European driver page seems to provide the Win 7 drivers for this unit.
    Usually the VAP for Win 7 and Flash Cards Support Utility should enable the FN functionality of the buttons.

    Maybe you should check if the and Flash Cards are enabled/activated.
    Usually you could find this tool in Programs -> Toshiba

    I found also two different BIOS for this series; one for Vista and one for Win XP… I think you should use the Vista BIOS in connection with Win 7.

    The flash cards are activated in the program you mentioned. I have never changed the BIOS version since i bought the laptop which came with windows vista.
    Any one else who has solved this problem?

    Hi

    I had a similar issue on my Toshiba notebook. I have solved it after the installation of Flash Cards Support Utility for Windows 7. Before that I have also tried Flash Cards Support Utility for Vista but no success. :(

    The Flash Cards Support Utility for Windows 7 is at the moment not available for all notebooks but search for e. g. Satellite L550 and Windows 7:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
    You can find the tool in version 1.63.0.4. Before you install this version, remove the old one first.

    Check this!!!
