    Goodnight fellow toshiba users,

    I presently own a Satellite A505-S6973 serie laptop.

    My problem; I have the laptop configured to automatically download and install windows updates. I can't recall when the last update was but now both the mute and eco utility touch buttons doesn't work. I searched through the laptops configuration mode and found a tab where I can register the buttons to active when i press mute and eco,, but my problem is i don't know when browsing where to find the application to register the buttons too.

    location of the configuration mode - FN (function) button, select the man icon, then select the button icon. That's when a prompt opens - Toshiba Button Support.

    I'm hoping someone can tell me what to do, because i really like this laptop and features included, and would appreciate having everything configured and working once again.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    > but my problem is i don't know when browsing where to find the application to register the buttons too.

    From my knowledge some apps were placed in c:/Program Files/Toshiba/TBS
    But this was a case on Toshiba notebooks with preinstalled Vista OS.

    However, fact is that VAP (value added package) controls the Toshiba Multimedia Buttons. I recommend reinstalling the VAP and the Toshiba eco Utility

    PS: this unit belongs to Toshiba US series… you need to use this page in order to get the software for this series;
