    without using the fn key .... hit the number lock key once if you are having that issue.... if that does not work tap the number key while holding the fn key down. just once then let go of the keys. having the number lock causes that issue. you may also note that number lock key is something other then white... the colour will correspond with the key you need to hit with the number lock key at the same time to change it.

    Other then that it may be a stuck key.

How do I turn on my touch pad on an Asus lap top?


Please try the Fn+F6 or Fn+F8 key combinations. If you look at the Function keys in the keyboard, they will have symbols on them in Blue color, the same color as the Fn key. Find the symbol that resembles a touchpad like a mouse/box with finger , then hold down the Fn key and press that Function key, ie, F6 or F7 or F8. This will enable/disable the touchpad.

Function key doesn't work


Hello, if the key is broken (Won't work at all) there is no way to fix it unless you replace the keyboard. You can however look for the: ATK / KB Filter Utility for Asus machines and that will give you access to some of the hotkey functions without having to use the fn key itself. You can find that here: http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=ATK_package&os=30

Unfortunately the fn key is not part of standard bios's as far as I know for most machines so you can't remap it to another key. You might be able to switch the [fn] function around though so you don't have to press the [fn] key to use the hotkeys.

It will look something like this: http://cdn4.thetechjournal.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/action-keys-bios-as7d889we79we7r9ew5rty321u32.jpg

To get there hold [F2] whilst powering on the machine and you should see something similar to that pic. Once done save and exit.

Please bare in mind that if you do this you will only be able to us the hotkeys in windows unless it's a keyboard specific command, e.g [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [F4].

Hope that helps

Disable fn key


Restart your laptop and enter the BIOS setup (F1, F2, F10 keys are common) and look for an option to 'use fn keys without fn button' or something like that.

Hello, how can I adjust my screen brightness????


Most laptops have several buttons on the keyboard that can adjust the screen brightness.
1. Find the "Function" key on your keyboard and hold it down. 2. Find the brightness up and down buttons on your keyboard. In this picture, they are on the F7 and F8 key. 3. While holding down the function button, press the key that has the "brightness up" picture on it, similar to the icon on the F8 key in the picture. . bradisright.jpg

My function is stuck on, i cannot type on my keyboard unless i hold the function key down the whole time i am typing. is there such a fn key release function.


Normally, if you hold down the "Fn" key, you'll get whatever character or function is printed in blue on those keys. So holding down the "Fn" key, you now have a numeric keypad in the middle of your keyboard. Release "Fn" and things are back to normal.
Which is exactly the opposite of what the question is asking. The person asking needed to press the "Fn" keys to get the normal, white, characters for each key.
The "problem" is simply that there is a persistent toggle. If you press "Num Lk" (I've also seen it labeled "Pad Lk" for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the "Fn" key - it's a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the "Fn" key the entire time.

numlk.jpg To fix it, just find and press the "Num Lk" or "Pad Lk" key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves "Fn" keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the "Fn" key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

Cat sat on laptop changed screen brightness. its to dark how do i brighten monitor


There is a master function key that you hold down while tapping another function located on the keyboard. This all depends on the model of laptop. Next time try to giva a little more info like make and model, which is located on the bottom. The function key or Fn key is usually located on the keyboard near the Alt and Control key lower left. while holding this key down, you tap the corresponding brightness key on the number of the keyboard, some times the brightness is on the 4 arrows on the right side of the keyboard...sometimes they are the numbers 6 or 7 look for what appears to be a symbol that looks like the sun or a light. Hold down Fn and tap the key that brightens the display.

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.
