You didn't state which Operating System you are running, so if Windoze Vista is your OS, this is a known issue and I'm sure that Asus support/download site will have an updated driver for you soon. If not? let us know if you made any hardware changes or installed any software before this issue occurred? If so, you might want to try to remove them and see if that gets your function keys working again.
Good Luck.

In the bottom-left corner of your keyboard, you'll see a key labeled "Fn". You must hold that key down while pressing the "F10" key or any other Function key to activate the Function.

Disable short cut key on function key


I understand that you want to disable the function key( action key). The action key feature is enabled at the factory. You can disable this feature in Setup Utility. If this feature is disabled in Setup Utility, you will need to press fn and an action key to activate the assigned function. Refer to the "Setup Utility (BIOS)" chapter for additional information. Refer the page 101 of the user maual for the information on Using Setup Utility http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02092591.pdf

How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys


Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

Hi i have the asus n53jg laptop. absolutly amazing laptop cant nock it i just have a little problem that i want to get sorted see the laptops function keys that run along the top have shortcuts on them...


Hi,

The function keys that you have works alone and in combinations. You can press and hold Fn key then tap on any of those keys to get the short cuts. You can also press and hold Alt key and any of those to get another short cut. It actually depends on what you want to do.

For example:

Using single key:
F5 - it will refresh a window
F11 - try it in internet explorer to see the result

Using Combination:
Alt + F4 - it will close an open window
Fn + F3 - it will lock or disable your touchpad

I hope I understood your concern and helped. Goodluck

Hi! I can't find any way to get my Advent 4211-C (Windows XP OS) webcam working on Skype (the only webcam function I currently use). Cyberlink says there's "No available Captured Device". I don't...


Advent 4211 always require you to enable it everytime you turn the laptop on. it is Fn key + F10 I think. Look for the Function key at the top of your keyboard which has a picture of a webcam. Hold down the FN key at the bottom left, and then click on the correct 'F' key. You should see a little picture come up on the screen to say you have enabled your webcam. That should work.
