You need the Toshiba Hotkey utility which interfaces between Windows and the system BIOS directly
For the A9 series (the configurable part of this) I think it's called 'Fn-esse'.

Not sure if you can just grab Hotkey and 'Fn-esse" from anywhere on the support page or you have to find a version that is specific to the A9 Series.

You need to get the right version for your system - the problem is not all models have an XP version written as Vista was the only O/S the model was supplied with.
