    New laptop FN keys not working [Solved]

    Exactly what I was used to do, pressing the FN key with an F key but that didn't work....
    If I press the FN key I get f1 f2 f3 and so on.

    It was just the other way around, but I figured it out now.*Smile Function key (Fn) is not working! :)

  3. New laptop FN keys not working [Solved]

    Ummm, that is normal - depending on the function you are doing (assuming I understand what you are saying).

    On a notebook, the Fn key is like a shift key that switches in a different set of functions for the F-Keys.

    For example, in Windows pressing the F5 key typically refreshes the display. In File Explorer, it will refresh the displayed files. In a browser, it will refresh (reload) the webpage. But pressing Fn + F5 does something different, depending on your notebook. On my Toshiba notebook, if I hold down the Fn key and press F5, it switches the video output of my notebook between the notebook monitor, a connected external monitor, or both.

    Function key (Fn) is not working!

    Function keys won't work w/o hitting Fn key also


    So how do I get to BIOS + what do I do when I get there? The keyboard came with the new computer. Not impressed with any of it + especially Windows 10. The function keys clearly have their use listed on the key, but they won't work w/o the Fn key. That's definitely not right.
