Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A45-S121 Notebook ?
The "FN" key does not function on my Dell inspiron B130
\015 When I press the FN and F10 the disc driver does not open. It will open by pressing the button on the driver. Also the CD/DVD driver does not play DVD'S, it will play cd's and it will also work when you want to install a program.\015
You need to install the keyboard utility for the FN key to work. I could not find your model# on the Toshiba site though so double check that. Playing DVDs requires a separate program such as Cyberlink. Disney DVDs should play though if the DVD is working - they have a built in player.
