Hit "FN" and the "NUM Lock" key together to unlock it.

I believe thats the combination.

Let me know.

Press Fn + Numlock. You have the number lock on, but laptops don't have a number pad. So it re-assigns these keys to overlay some existing ones. Once your number lock is turned off you should be ok.

SOURCE: FUNCTION KEY:(

try, right click on my computer icon>properties>hardware tab>device manager>, then look down the list to your keyboard, click + sign, right click on keyboard select uninstal and then reboot notebook and keyboard will self install. If still not working your drivers may be corrupt and will need to be downloaded from the Asus support website.

Function key doesn't work


Hello, if the key is broken (Won't work at all) there is no way to fix it unless you replace the keyboard. You can however look for the: ATK / KB Filter Utility for Asus machines and that will give you access to some of the hotkey functions without having to use the fn key itself. You can find that here: http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=ATK_package&os=30

Unfortunately the fn key is not part of standard bios's as far as I know for most machines so you can't remap it to another key. You might be able to switch the [fn] function around though so you don't have to press the [fn] key to use the hotkeys.

It will look something like this: http://cdn4.thetechjournal.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/action-keys-bios-as7d889we79we7r9ew5rty321u32.jpg

To get there hold [F2] whilst powering on the machine and you should see something similar to that pic. Once done save and exit.

Please bare in mind that if you do this you will only be able to us the hotkeys in windows unless it's a keyboard specific command, e.g [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [F4].

Hope that helps

My asus k42f fn function keys not working :(


Are you holding down the FN key while selecting the Blue key you wish to open. You have to hold the FN key down at the same time as you press the Blue Key you wish to use in other words. If this does not work you may be looking at either a driver issue for your keyboard or a replacement matter. John

My keyboard won't light up on an ASIA G73J. I have tried the function keys and they won't work.


Did you hold down the [fn] key, in combination with the function keys? If not, you have to hold down the [fn] key in combination with pressing the function key's that are associated with the keyboard back-lighting (usually [F3] or [F4] on an ASUS G-series).

Asus virtual camera not working


have you tried pressing Fn+V keys? V key has a camera icon and when Fn key is pressed together with it, Asus lifeFrame utility opens. Only then your webcam will be activated. Enjoy!

The keyboard is locked. Instead of letters, it gives me numbers


Click Fn+Numlk as this switches your keyboard to the numbers printed in blue. Pressing that combination again, puts the keyboard back to normal. The Fn key will switch the function keys to the designated lower operation, so your F11 key has the NumLk operation controlled by the Fn key
