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.

Its probably just a broken key on the keyboard. If you know someone with a usb keyboard then plug it in and see if the FN key on that responds. if it does then it is the keyboard at fault.I would buy a new keyboard.
i guess f1, f2, and all the function keys are given with added fn key in the left corner of the keypad. search for the blue icon with fn in the keypad. that should solve it. press fn along with the key you want to use.
there is probably a key on the bottom left of the keyboard that has a blue fn on it and somewhere else on the keyboard there will be a key with a blue sun looking thing with an up arrow on it and another key with a blue sun looking thing with a down arrow. hold the fn key and push the up arrow sun thing to make it brighter and the down one to make it dimmer
It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.
