Samsung R710 Fn Function Drivers? (+ backlight problem)

Ive got a samsung R710 Laptop and windows 7 works great, but the vista drivers for the FN functions dont work correctly and im unable to change the backlight dimmness using the keys or using the operating system settings. I wondered if anyone else had found anymore drivers? Theres nothing on the samsung website.

Thanks in advance!

I HAVE THE SOLUTION!!!!

NVIDIA - Download Drivers

Update your nvidia drivers with this link (make sure you're using win7 32bit) if not go to the nvidia site and let it scan your pc.

The Fn Keys still wont work BUT if you use the windows brightness adjuster it shall work as it should, finally!

Woohoo so pleased!

Now to fix my stupid blackberry!

Goto the samsung website and download the easy display manager software it will get your FN key to work to turn volume, brightness up and down and backlight on and off ect. Hope this helps!
