I had to format and re-install Windows XP on a Satellite A105-S4201 Laptop.  I installed XP, and updated to SP3.  The brightness control no longer works using Fn+F6/F7 (or any other way for that matter).  It was working before the format.  

I tried a couple of different Common Modules installs.  This one: tc00324000b (version 6.07.03) won't even install.  Gave me error message, "TVALG Driver installation has failed".  And this one: SPA210 TCommon Modules-XP (version 1.00.06) installed, and had me restart, but when I tried to install the hotkey utilities afterward, it said "TOSHIBA Common Module not found! This setup will terminate."  Also, I have the latest BIOS version installed (v 6.0)

Any ideas?

Version: 9.0.4.3201

or

I don't know where you find those... I'm using this site: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=1424102

But, I'll check those out.  Thanks.

Tried the first one.. Got error message, "The Procedure entry point SetProcessDPIAware could not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll"

Second one just disappeared after extracting to temp folder.
