Question about Sony VAIO VGP-WKB1 Keyboard

1 Answer

Vgb-wk11 I've lost the use of the Fn keys, since an update of my Sony Vaio VPCL22Z1E to Windows 8.1. When pressed, nothing happens. All other keys and combinations thereof work fine. I've removed the keyboard driver and had it automatically reinstall itself, but to no avail. Does anyone have suggestions as to the solution here? I'd be much obliged.

SOURCE: How to reattach the F12 key on my Sony Vaio

Sounds like the cat did more then just damage the F12 key. If the plastic connectors underneath the F12 are damaged or the white tactile is damaged then they keyboard is done in that aspect. What worries me more is that the right hand side of the keyboard is not usable.

What needs to happen is the keyboard needs to be taken out and reseated back into its slot on the motherboard and see if you can use all of the keys again minus the F12.

If you can then use the keyboard until you can get another one.

If you get the same results (not being able to use the right hand side of the keyboard) then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced ASAP or you can use an external usb keyboard for now.

The FN key stopped working from nothing, pressing FN + F3 or f4 or f5 or f6 or f7 nothing happens


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.

FN keys don't work on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ18GP


The solution is as follows, which worked for me:

- Install Windows 7
- let it update all the drivers that it needs to
- Install additional Sony drivers that you need (XP drivers work just fine, but make sure to install them in Administrator mode, so, Run as Administrator), such as camera, fingerprint scanner, etc
- Install the Notebook Control Device Driver (without this the other software does nothing)
- Sony Utilities DLL
- Sony Shared Library

* restart computer *

- Sony Video Shared Library
- SUS (Setting Utility Series)

* restart computer *

- VES (VAIO Event Service)

After this one the Fn keys will start to work. The S1 and S2 keys don't work due to something to do with UAC (but I don't need them anyway)

- VAIO Control Centre (will allow you to change what the S1 and S2 keys do, even though you can't use them :) )

That's it and it worked for me.
