Question about Computers & Internet
I just had exactly the same issue. I found the answer on the HP website, but to save you looking for it, here's what you do:
1) Go to the BIOS for your machine. You'll do this by interrupting the startup sequence. On my Presario CQ42, I had to press ESC while the machine was starting.
2) Once in the BIOS, use the right/left arrow keys to move to the System Configuration tab.
3) Use the up/down arrow keys to move to the Action Key setting (Enable/Disable) and change it from the current setting.
4) Save and exit the BIOS.
Once your laptop finishes the boot-up, the F1-F12 keys should function the way you were used to.
