F12 function key doesn t work


Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard.
They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12."
Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond.
Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up.
Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key.
This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work.
Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software.
If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again.
If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality.

Hy i install window 7 in imac desktop after installing black screen apper keyboard blinking 3or 4 minits not working even when cd is booting when it say"press any key to boot cd' wirless keyboard is...


Hi, by reading your question I am not sure if you are saying that when you load up Windows 7, nothing shows but a black screen or if your keyboard is not working. Well anyway I am going to try and help with both.
If you are getting a black screen when loading up, this is probably because your computer does not support Windows 7. In order to use Bootcamp and install Windows 7 you must be on Mac 10.6 and up or Snow Leopard. That is the only OS that supports Windows 7 and if you do have Mac 10.6 but you still have the black screen it is probably because the actual computer can't handle it or the drivers in the computer might not support it. I would say anything before 2005 will not be able to load Windows 7, but I am just taking a guess. For my second solution dealing with your wireless keyboard, when you installed Windows 7, no drivers were installed because Windows does not support them yet. This is why your keyboard was blinking, it was looking for a connection because it was not connected to anything. When installing Windows 7 you will need a wired mouse and keyboard because your Apple Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard is not yet pared with the computer. In order to install the drivers to make your keyboard work you need to load up Windows 7 by holding down the "option" key when turning on the iMac. Then once you select Windows 7, and it loads up to the desktop you need to insert your Mac reinstall CDs, then follow the on screen steps to install the drivers. From there you should be able to go into the control panel and add a wireless keyboard under the devices panel.
I hope this helps, Justin

Starting Windows and Keyboard Problems


- that is why you are getting "Windows Boot Manager" is because your Operating System was already corrupted so if you have Recovery Disk you need to do clean install (re-installing OS again)

- you can also try to do One Key Recovery by powering off the computer then press the button sitting beside of the power (have a curve u)then you should be getting windows loading files but if not you should call Lenovo to ask Recovery Disk

- regarding your keyboard you need to contact Lenovo as well in order for them to replace your keyboard..just call 1-877-453-6686

if your special function keys aren't working properly while the rest of your keyboard is, then likely your problem is a driver problem. The keyboard should have come with a driver disc you can use to re-install them -or- they can likely be found at www.logitech.com. My advice would be to re-install the drivers for your keyboard (or "update" them). That will most likely fix your problem. Make sure you install drivers intended for Windows Vista, as many drivers for other versions of windows may not work properly.
