What is the exact model of your notebook. I didn't see it posted and it is not in your System Specs.

Found it. But I don't see anything like what Dell has to give extra functions to the Function keys.

Good work, Bogdan.

Which driver was the one for your Samsung FN keys so others who find this thread in searches will know?

Any other tips on how you got missing functions working?

The driver was called Easy Display Manager which I downloaded from the Samsung website. The only reason I couldn't find it was because of the name. I thought it would have function key in the name or something.

The only other driver I downloaded from the Samsung website was called "LAN(driver)" to get the internet working. Also I downloaded display drivers from the NVidia website.
