Solved Fn Brightness Control lost, Toshiba Laptop

November 3, 2013 at 05:04:41
Specs: Windows 7 Starter, AMD/2GB
I had to format and re-install Windows XP on a Satellite A105-S4201 Laptop. I installed XP, and updated to SP3. The brightness control no longer works using Fn+F6/F7 (or any other way for that matter). It was working before the format.
I tried a couple of different Common Modules installs. This one: tc00324000b (version 6.07.03) won't even install. Gave me error message, "TVALG Driver installation has failed". And this one: SPA210 TCommon Modules-XP (version 1.00.06) installed, and had me restart, but when I tried to install the hotkey utilities afterward, it said "TOSHIBA Common Module not found! This setup will terminate." Also, I have the latest BIOS version installed (v 6.0)
Any ideas?

If this was reformatted with an ordinary (non Toshiba) XP disc then it will no longer have the Toshiba utilities onboard - hence your issue. What you needed was a Toshiba factory restore.

Maybe something here will help:
