Check under your "processes" in the Windows Taskmanager and see if you can find anything listed that starts with "hk" like "hkserv", "hksrv" or "hkcmd" .. That would be your hotkeys, if they were working. :) This means the driver for your hotkeys is missing or corrupt. Now, go to this site here: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?PRODTYPE=24&NAVDISP=pc and enter all your info (like model number, ...), then you'll be able to download the proper hotkey driver for your model Vaio. write back if it worked. regards, Tom

The FN key stopped working from nothing, pressing FN + F3 or f4 or f5 or f6 or f7 nothing happens

Its probably just a broken key on the keyboard. If you know someone with a usb keyboard then plug it in and see if the FN key on that responds. if it does then it is the keyboard at fault.I would buy a new keyboard.

I purchased Vaio VGN-ns21m keyboard dont function f1 f2... canc

i guess f1, f2, and all the function keys are given with added fn key in the left corner of the keypad. search for the blue icon with fn in the keypad. that should solve it. press fn along with the key you want to use.

I have a problem with keyboard volume control

These instructions are for Windows XP:

  • The volume button, brightness key, and disc eject button on some computers will not work if the HotKey Utility application is not running.
  • The Magnify button and the Fn keys will not function properly before the operating system has finished starting.
  • The setting may not be saved if the ESC key is used to close the Fn display. Press the ENTER key or allow the Fn display to close automatically to save the setting.
  1. Click the Start button, then click Run .
  2. In the Run window, next to Open , type MSCONFIG .
  3. Press the ENTER key.
  4. In the System Configuration Utility window, click the Startup tab.
  5. On the Startup tab, under Startup Item , ensure that there is a check in the HKserv checkbox. NOTE: If HKserv is missing, reinstall the HotKey Utility application and the Sony Utilities Library.
  6. Click the OK button.
  7. In the System Configuration box, click the restart button.

Fn keys

It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.
