    function keys not working


    I have a Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200 with windows 8, and none of the function keys are working, although they used to work. Windows 8 does not have flash cards, nor is there a keyboard option on computer settings. Any ideas?

    Can you remember a specific day when it quit? Perhaps an update or some program install changed something.
