SOURCE: keys fn+f4 doesn't function

does they function normally ? you should have mentioned it. welll still i take it to be yes, they funcion normally good. but when combined they do not. I think its a virus problem . go for a thorough scan using a good updated antivirus. Still if the roblem persists, go for a fresh format. if still the problem persists i think its the problem with the keyboard itself. replace it.

How do I get the F4 key to work?


Make sure you're pressing the function key and not the letters F and then 4. You may need to press the fn key on your keyboard (if it exists). You could also launch the app called the On-Screen keyboard (included with Windows).

Tip

Keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Microsoft Office


Windows

Windows Key+E
This shortcut allows you to open Windows Explorer with one quick keystroke.

Alt+Tab
This allows you to easily toggle back and forth between all the windows you have open. You can also use this to switch between windows in the same program, making multitasking real easy.

Windows key+Tab
This lets you scroll the items on the taskbar, and in Vista, it starts Flip 3D for a fun graphical spin on the same idea.

Alt+F4
This shortcut is a quick way to close a window in any program without using your mouse to hit the X in the upper-right corner.

Windows Key+M
This allows you to minimize all of your open windows, leaving just the desktop left exposed. To restore the windows, hit Windows key+Shift+M. Another quick way to do this is Windows key+D, which shows your desktop; to restore, just repeat the same keystroke.

Ctrl+Drag
There are many ways to copy a file, but this just might be the easiest. All you have to do is click on the file, hold, and drag it into its desired location. This works the same as another handy shortcut, Ctrl+C.

Windows Key+U+U
This is the shortcut for quickly shutting down Windows by hitting the Windows key (don't hold it down), hitting U to reach the shutdown menu, and then hitting U again to shut down.

Windows Key+Pause
This is a quick way to get to the Systems Properties menu.

Shift+Delete
If you want to delete a file-and you don't want to deal with it later in the Recycle Bin-this is the way to go. Just be absolutely sure that this is a file you won't want back!

Microsoft Office

Ctrl+U, Ctrl+B, Ctrl+I
Used to snap to underline, bold, and italicize without the mouse if you press Ctrl+U (underlining), Ctrl+B (bolding), or Ctrl+I (italicizing).

Shift + Arrow Keys
Holding shift and pressing one of the arrow keys will highlight text in Word (or a group of Excel cells) without the mouse, selecting in the direction the arrow points.

Undo an action by hitting Ctrl+Z; if you change your mind, Ctrl+Y will redo the undo.

Touchpad stopped working cannot move pointer arrow around screen


Hi,

Just check for the key combination on your key board (ex. Fn + F4 or F5..depends on the what key was designed for the touchpad), the touchpad might be locked.

If it is not locked, reinstall the touchpad driver, but it this still doesn't work, boot to Safe Mode to check if it does. Touch pad still not responding in Safe Mode would mean hardware failure.

Hope this helps.
