Laptop onscreen commands not showing.

Hello

I just installed Windows 7 and its great! But my laptop no longer shows onscreen commands (such as Fn+sound up/down, brightness up/down etc).

I have downloaded all the drivers from my laptop manufacturers website (Samsung).

I am running Windows 7 32bit.

Thanks for any help.

Does the desired effect still take place, or does nothing happen when pressing the key combination? I have an Acer and the function keys still work, just no message is displayed.

*could you also fill out your system specs, along with the model name/number of your laptop to make this experience easier?

No the screen doesn't get dimmer nor does the sound go up or down. Theres also a onscreen command/prompt for when caps is turned on or off but the button still works.

My laptop is a 'Samsung R519'

I believe this is the software you need to make this work:

Support for R519-53S SAMSUNG

Follow the link, click on SOFTWARE DOWNLOADS, and download the Magic Keyboard software.

Hope this helps,

Windows 7 told me how to turn on the onscreen keyboard but I cant find where it tells me to turn it off. I'd think the logical place to tell me that would be with the turn on instruction. But nope I gotta go to the source of real information Windows 7 forum. Have a nice day.
