Re: looking for screen and keyboard
EBay is the best place for this type of thing. It's way cheaper than any laptop depot I've come across.
Here's one for your keyboard:
As far as the screen is concerned; the way to get the best deal is to search by model number of the screen and not just laptop. The same screen can be used in several different laptops. Take your screen out and look on the back of it. There will be a model number there. Enter that model number into ebay's search, making sure you check product description to be included in the search query. Any screen matching that model number will fit your laptop just perfectly and it will save you a bundle.

The first step to replacing your laptop keyboard is to remove the screws from the back of your vaio vgn-fe880e/h. Sometimes your laptop will have a picture of a keyboard next to the screws that need to be removed. Otherwise, see your laptop manual for details.
Above the laptop keyboard for sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h, you have a cover panel. If required, remove this part to easily access your keyboard. If you have screws above your keyboard, remove those screws.
Now that you have removed all the screws, you are ready to remove and then replace your new laptop keyboard.
To remove the vaio vgn-fe880e/h Keyboard, take a thin object and pry the keyboard out between the keyboard and motherboard. Be careful when removing the keyboard.
Now that your keyboard is loose, simply disconnect your keyboard. In order to disconnect the keyboard, pay attention to the keyboard connector and connector cable. Unlock the connector cable device and remove your laptop keyboard. Your sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h connector cable should be easy to remove by simply sliding it out.
Now that your keyboard has been removed, get ready to install your new laptop keyboard. Look at the back of the keyboard. If you see any screw holes, you will have a good idea of where to place the screws back in at the bottom of the laptop.
Connect your laptop keyboard for sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h to the motherboard keyboard connection slot. Secure the keyboard cable. Now turn your keyboard in place, and align the grooves on the bottom of your keyboard with your palmrest or plastic bezel. Secure your laptop keyboard in place, make sure it fits properly and is snug. Now simply place the screws back in place.
On every computer motherboard there is what's called a UART chip. This chip is responsible for capturing every keyboard click, interpreting what letter it is, converting it to zeros or ones used by computers, and sending it to the processor for action. If this chip fails, even replacing the keyboard won't fix it.
Unfortunately this chip is usually part of the motherboard so the only way to replace it is to replace the motherboard, which usually isn't cheap. If you can live with the external keyboard you might want to stay with that. Otherwise, if you Google sony Vaio motherboards, I'm sure you can find a number of sources online to purchase a motherboard. Replacing one is tricky but not insurmountable if you take your time and can follow directions, also available online.
Best of luck! Hope this helps!
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.
