Laptop FN hotkey doesnt work

  simmo09 10:57 19 Apr 08

just recently formatted vista laptop, and put xp on. Its a toshiba laptop, normally i could hold FN and if i press say F6 could turn the brightness down.

I can no longer do this, even after downloading the Hotkey utility from the toshiba website.

Please advise

update: FN + F3 works which goes to standby, but other hotkeys are not recognized?

have you downloaded the right keyboard drivers?

yes i went on the toshiba website, specified my exact make and model, OS and architecture. Only FN+F3 work however.
