Function key not working

The blue "FN" (function key) is not working on my 1000he eee pc netbook. Neither are the instant keys at the top of the keyboard. Is this a driver issue that can be fixed with reinstalling a driver? If so where could I find the driver?

ASUSTek Computer Inc., or simply Asus, has been a leading innovator in computer hardware technology for the last 20 years. Taking the same precision and care in its hardware manufacturing, Asus has been making quality laptops, desktops and servers for the last several years. With a selection of on-board functions in their laptop series, certain keys can malfunction during system updates and software changes. Use the function key (Fn) located at the bottom right of your keyboard in combination with any of the F keys located at the top of your keyboard. If none or only some of the combined command keys work together, then there is an issue with the ATK Drivers. An update of these drivers will eradicate the issue. Navigate your browser to the Asus support site, linked in the references section below. This website will provide the tools necessary for driver update. Select the appropriate products from the three drop-down menus at the top right of the support page. For the first box, select "notebook," the second box select the series notebook that you are using and for the third box, select the corresponding model. With all three selections, hit the search box located underneath these product selections. When the popup window appears, choose your corresponding operating system. Once chosen, hit search. A list of file types will appear with corresponding selections for driver updates. Click on the "+" box located next to the file type ATK. This will generate a list of all the appropriate driver types associated with this particular function. Locate the driver description "ATK Hotkey Utility" and click on "Global(DLM)". This will open another pop-up and your driver download will begin. Once the selected device driver has finished downloading, a prompt to launch the application will appear in the popup box of the download manager. Select "launch" to unpack the zip files using the Winrar software. Make note of the folder in which the unpacked driver setup is sent. Locate the Setup file that was just unpacked and double-click for activation. This will initiate driver setup of the driver that has just been downloaded and restore the function of the Fn key. Follow the instructions once setup has initialized. Once setup is complete, you will be asked to restart your system so that all changes and driver updates can take effect. Close all programs and perform this final step to complete driver setup. The function key on the Asus keyboard should now be restored to its intended use. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ASUS keyboard delete key won't work

are you sure that the key is seated properly on the board? This can easily be fixed by popping it off and checking to see if the 1, or 2, plastic like springs are connect to the key and the board.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

The fn hotkeys f3 to f12 are not working.

It could be a key problem or a connection problem, cleaning the contacts helps by using contact cleaner. You can also remove the keyboard and clean the ribbon contacts and place it back again. At times it works but if not you need to replace your keyboard.

I have had this netbook (asus: 1005H) for 8 months. Everything worked fine, but now the function keys won't respond? Anything I can do? Danny Doss

Within this link is the documentation for your laptop:
You might need to scroll down to find the English version, and then download it from one of the links.

It's possible that there's a function key turn on/off key (or sequence of keys) that might have been pressed. This turned off the functions keys so they're acting as different keys. If your function keys have multiple symbols on them, then they can act as different keys when in this different mode. You need to switch back to the 'function key' mode. Check out the documentation and see if there's something like this.

If this has helped please remember to give me the appropriate 'thumbs up' feedback. Thanks, and good luck!

Want to use my tv as a monitor, how do I activate the vga output?

Hi adiazjr.On the Asus 1000he, in order to switch to an external monitor you need to press the function key (Fn) at the bottom left of the keyboard and the F8 key at the top. When you press both of these keys at the same time it will send the video signal to whatever external monitor or TV you have connected. Hope this helps!
