Possible XP Drivers ? =(

I have a Toshiba Satellite a135-7406 that I recently downgraded Windows Vista Basic to Windows XP Professional SP3. Luckily I have been able to find every driver I need except for 2.

- "FN" Button Functions no longer work
- No longer able to control screen brightness



I have extensively searched the internet the past few days for these last drivers, but to no avail. It seems Toshiba has absolutely no support for a "XP Downgrade" so all the drivers on their site are for Vista. Every site I have been on so far suggested that this computer was kind of made "specifically" for Windows Vista (hence the poor driver support).

I am only looking for a "quick-fix" so to say for atleast the Screen Brightness. My screen is currently set on full brightness all the time, with no way to change it, the battery lasts a mere 45 minutes. Any software lthat may help me, or anything at all is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Bump....


I'm now wondering I fI should just put Windows Vista Basic back onto this machine. Althought I only have Intel 945 Graphics/1GB Ram I wonder how this machine would handle it (have yet to experience Vista myself, person who had the laptop beforeme already put XP Pro on before I go it.)
