I recently bought a Samsung laptop (NP300E5C-A06US) and absolutely hated Windows 8 so I thought I would downgrade to Windows 7 to make my life a little easier. I have installed all necessary drivers, or at least I think I have. WLAN, chipset, touchpad, HECI, Intel Rapid Storage, and LAN. I don't need the bluetooth or camera drivers seeing as I do not use any of those. Now my laptop runs like a dream w/ Win 7 but I cant help but miss certain features like being able to use the FN key along with the function keys to adjust brightness, volume and screen output. It also seems that I cannot adjust screen brightness at all, I am sure there is software out there that I can install to adjust this but I was wondering if there was a way for me to get out of factory full functionality out of my machine without having to restore to Win 8 or buying a Win 7 laptop. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, Thank you!

I suspect you are missing the necessary driver. See if it there are any w8 drivers available that did not have an equivalent W7 driver and try to install that.
Sounds like you are missing the keyboard driver for your laptop.
