        From the 3100 manual, Fn + F1 = F11, Fn + F2 =F12. Fn + Numlock gets you
into the numeric keypad overlay. Fn + Pg Dn sets the processor speed to 6
Meg. Fn + Pg Up goes to 12 Meg.(or when you start the system)
        To select RGB, press Fn + End, Fn + Home goes to Plasma display.
        To access setup, go into Dos directory and type "Test 3" which gives you a
diagnostics menu. (Only works with the original Toshiba Dos ). There was
also a diagnostics and supplimental disk, but it also would only work with
the original Dos 3.3.
        I haven't used a modem on mine for some time, but I have a note in the
" Modem (Dos6.2)(Test 3 wont work) Com 3, IRQ2, 3E8." Good luck.
