Special function keys (if that is what you are talking about) are part of the O/S. If you are talking about the Fn key-Special Function combo keys, you'll have to download that software from your manufacturer's site. The utils should be on the system or util disk that came with your computer

Fn key driver


function key does not need a driver. Drivers come in built in the windows. I believe your function key is defective or you have software issue. Check if other keys are working or your other keys are not functioning. In that case you have to change this key. Check at ebay. People sell single keys.

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.

Your function keys should now work properly.

The quick launch microsoft word/excel/powerpoint/calendar don't work. What can I do? I have XP operating system on my PC.


You will need the correct software installed to do this. XP does not inherently have this so those functions will not be activated. Install this software, reboot and try again. Make sure if there is function or special key to activate a dual purpose key (two functions on one key -check key face for two functions). Sometime you may inadvertently toggle this off and THINK it fdoes not work. Maybe try this first to avoid installing stuff for no reason.

Keyboard LX501 : Function keys work but number and alphabetic keys and other keys dont


Hi,
Check the underside of the keyboard and see if there is a reset button (might be a small pin hole).

If not it might be a software problem.

Function keys not working


try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicationg that the funtion keys are in use. depends on the brand

Function keys


Have you installed the software which follows with the keyboard? The function keys are usually activated via a software which often follows with the keyboard, probably on the driver CD.
