    I have bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4200 laptop. It works fine. I have
    Googled comprehensively and can't find a source for a downloadable User's
    Guide. There are little icons on some of the keys that I don't understand,
    and I can't get into the BIOS. I believe that the screen brightness is
    adjustable by using some Function keys, and is also adjustable in the BIOS.
    Does anyone know how I can get into Setup? DEL doesn't do it. Does anyone
    know where I can get a downloadable manual? I thought I would find it on the
    HDD somewhere, but I can't.
    It's an old machine, I know, but there must still be a manual or user's
    guide somewhere.

    Thank you

    Google is your friend.

    Go to http://www.toshiba-europe.com/bv/computers/sns/index.asp
    click on "drivers and updates"
    in the next screen click on "Driver downloads"
    scroll down to the bottom of the next screen and click on "Please click here
    to download manuals"
    Good luck.

    Thanks for that.
    They don't recognise my serial number.

  4. Try fiddling with various keys. Not just Del.. there's F1, F2 and I
    think even Esc - so try all of these first.

    I hadn't considered serial numbers. Perhaps each region only covers its own.
    Try http://www.isd.toshiba.com.au/71/live.dll/topic/content/homepage.jsp
    Click on Support in the left hand side of the screen and then on
    User Manuals under the heading Download Centre.
