Windows 7: Getting the brightness / wifi on-off / volume keys to work

Getting the brightness / wifi on-off / volume keys to work

I recently got a new laptop and replaced the preinstalled Windows 8 with Windows 7. Unfortunately, the special options to the function keys (wifi on/off, brightness, change volume, change multiscreen mode, etc.) don't work. Does anybody know of a way to fix that?

you would have to go to the manufacturer of the computer and download the specific to your model, driver software for the laptop.

does holding down the Fn key at the same time not do anything?
