SOURCE: I installed windows 7 and now my function keys don't work

You need to install the drivers, windows does not recognize these additional buttons until the proper drivers are loaded. Depending on manufacturer windows 7 drivers may or may not be available. Microsoft did something smart with windows 7 by allowing you to use windows vista drivers in windows 7. So if there are no win 7 drivers just download and install the vista drivers. Good luck!

The letter s and D on my laptop act as a volume control function. How do I fix this problem?


Most laptops use a key combination for these kinds of tasks. Things like volume, wifi access, or screen brightness can be modified usually by holding a function key. This key is usually marked with "Fn" and you hold it down while pressing on of the F keys at the top of the keyboard (F1, F2, etc til F12.) to perform the task. Now, some computers have a "function lock" ability. Which basically means you do not have to hold that Fn key to do tasks. Could be that has been enabled. If you provide the laptop make and model we can look into it. =)

Cannot adjust brightness in windows 8


Your laptop button functionality will not work until you install the drivers necessary. Check online for the drivers and make sure that all of your drivers are installed in device manager. To get to device manager, right click computer and click manage. In the sidebar, go to device manager. I'm not quite sure if windows 8 has a software slider... it should be under power options where you can adjust the screen brightness to save battery. Good luck

My function keys of hp probook 4420s is not working


You have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of your keyboard then hit the volume or brightness keys. Notice that the volume and brightness keys are the same color as the FN function key. That means you have to press and hold the FN key while you hit the volume or brightness key.

I use Asus laptop. after I install a new Windows XP sp3, the Fn key is not working, so i can not change the bright, the volume... How can I fix them?


Hi there,
The Fn function to change the bright etc is driven by the software called Hotkey software, please download the software from the Asus website and make sure you know the type of your laptop.

What is the fn key


The fn key is the function key. I am sure that helps a ton. The fn key works like a shift key, changing the buttons marked fn, like volume, screen brightness, etc. The use is that you press and hold the function key, and press teh function button and then release both.
Common uses are to turn off the mousepad, while typing, and to set screen brightness while under battery....

There is no explanation for the use of function keys. Can I find an explanation somewhere? Also there is a key with window logo next to Fn key, what is its function. Thank you


These function keys are synonymous to the Multimedia Keyboard. You can change the volume level or monitor brightness/contrast level by pressing and holding these function keys. For example, hold function key and press volume up key (F4/F5/F6/F7/F8 -- depending upon your Laptop Model) to increase the volume which you could do from the volume tray icon in the taskbar. This is most useful, when you are playing a full-screen game or a Cinema or such like any full-screen operation and do not want to abort your pace of work and get back to the desktop. I have mentioned only one usefulness of this function key and there are lots of such operations if you know them properly.

Now, the Windows Logo key....there are innumerous operations. Such like, the most widely used operation is axn_almighty.jpg+D which is used to show the desktop. You are using a full screen operation and you want to go back to desktop in no time, then use this combination. You want to log off (in XP) or lock your computer(Vista/Seven), use axn_almighty.jpg+L and your computer will be logged off or locked. If you are using Seven, then when more than two window is open, use axn_almighty.jpg+Tab to see what happens!! ( I will not tell you it just now! Enjoy this scenario! ). Due to shortage of time and space I will not be able to explain all the functions just now here......but you can surf the internet for more functions of these keys. I hope, you have enjoyed this article, thanks.
