If your computer has had its mainboard switched, or has been hardreset, you might have to change the setting for your function-key ( Fn ) in your BIOS.

None of the Fkeys work when i push them. And yes the laptop is turned on.

The F keys only work when the Fn key is pressed at the same time. If they still don't work, check the system board drivers are installed and loaded.
F8 at start up is not a Function key.

Funtional keys are not working in lenovo

Function keys on many laptops are used as the secondary set and the individual functions of the keys have been shifted to the primary functions. Thus, if you press F1 and things are normal, you would get some kind of "help" But if, as in many laptops, the functions of those "F" keys has been reversed you might get an Internet key, a brightness key, some kind of CD opening key, or whatever the manufacture decided. F2, as another instance, is used to trigger "edit" of the current item....but in many laptops pressing F2 just turns off your wireless signal or dims the screen slightly. In those cases the way to access the expected Fkey functions is to hole the Fn key down (at the bottom left of the keyboard) then press the desired F key. Personally I find it nuts to have reversed an PC age old way but I'm not in charge of keeping people happy so it's not happening.

Hope that helps.

Touchpad can't move

On most HP laptops there is a small button located near the touchpad that will enable and disable it.

Usually on other laptops there are F1-F12 keys located at the top of your keyboard with pictures on them and if you hold down the FN key (usually located near the spacebar or CTRL/ALT keys) and press one it does a function such as change the volume (usually indicated by speakers with sound waves coming from it). Usually pressing of the FKeys combined with the FN key will disable and enable the touchpad.

It seemed the laptop came on, but had a blank screen

Check that brightness is not turned right down, you do this using the function keys, Fn and one of the Fkeys the top line of your keyboard. Another thing to check is that external monitor has not been aactivated. This can be corrected by using the function keys as well.

When I type on the keyboard, sometime the letters will start typing as numbers. I accidently got my fingers on the F keys and I don't know if that is what caused this problem.

to check if you really press the Fkeys accidentally you can test all the Fkeys in your keybpoard then observe what are the effects of every FKeys you press. In that way you can surely check if the cause of your problem no in your keyboard is by pressing the Fkeys accidentally or if your keyboard has the problem.
