(FuNction key) A keyboard key that works like a shift key to activate the second function on a dual-purpose key, typically found on laptops to reduce keyboard size. It is different than the function keys F1, F2, etc. It is also a real nuisance when the PageUp and PageDn keys are placed on the Up and Down Arrow keys and have to be activated by pressing the Fn key.

Hope this helps you,
George

    One of the more useful functions for the "FN'" key is to easily disable the wireless adapter. This way you're sure that you connecting at a faster rate (usually), and also it's more safe in public areas because of hackers at Hot Spots.

Keypad seizing..when ever i want to type,some of the keypad hang and i need to hit the letters several times.


It seems that keyboard has started to malfunction.. it happens after some time.. If possible replace the keyboard.. Get a new one from the marke.

In the mean time you can try cleaning the keyboard once, so that if dust on any other dirt is affecting the performance, you can overcome that..

Use a blower to clean that..

Cannot use letters of my laptop unless use fn key but not capital


You need to press the NumLock key to get the keyboard to get back to alphanumeric - it has a symbol of a lock with a number 1 on it. A LED should also go out/icon in your tool tray should disappear as well.

Laptop keyboard issues


Is this a laptop? Some laptops will allow you to use these keys as the number pad/arrow pad as well in a certain mode. You will likely be able to turn off with a combination of the FN key plus one of keys F1-F12 (the function key will perform the action shown as a symbol on these keys).

If none of the symbols seems to indicate this mode. Try each combination and test to see which combination sets your keyboard mode back to normal.

You may have activated a shortcut key on your keyboard such as the Fn (function) key. It looks like this

Fn and usually situated on the bottom left hand side of your keyboard near the left hand cntrl button.

Some function keys when pressed once remain on. Once they are on they can cause different symbols to appear in place of the normal keyboard ones. If you press your Fn key again and then try typing on the keyboard once again it may help fix your problem.

I hope this helps
Cheers
