Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook
I just found out recently that my Fn key does not work. All the keys that i can use for sound, lighting, monitor, sleep and scr Lk cant be used. Didnt know what happened... Tnx!
Check under your "processes" in the Windows Taskmanager and see if you can find anything listed that starts with "hk" like "hkserv", "hksrv" or "hkcmd" .. That would be your hotkeys, if they were working. :) This means the driver for your hotkeys is missing or corrupt. Now, go to this site here: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?PRODTYPE=24&NAVDISP=pc and enter all your info (like model number, ...), then you'll be able to download the proper hotkey driver for your model Vaio. write back if it worked. regards, Tom

Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.
You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"]
keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at
the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.
Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.
Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.
After you release all the keys alt symbol should be
entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really
enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine
near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case
- try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt".
That just might work.

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.
