SOURCE: VAIO Notebook Fn Keyboard not working

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

SOURCE: FN keys don't work on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ18GP

The solution is as follows, which worked for me:

- Install Windows 7
- let it update all the drivers that it needs to
- Install additional Sony drivers that you need (XP drivers work just fine, but make sure to install them in Administrator mode, so, Run as Administrator), such as camera, fingerprint scanner, etc
- Install the Notebook Control Device Driver (without this the other software does nothing)
- Sony Utilities DLL
- Sony Shared Library

* restart computer *

- Sony Video Shared Library
- SUS (Setting Utility Series)

* restart computer *

- VES (VAIO Event Service)

After this one the Fn keys will start to work. The S1 and S2 keys don't work due to something to do with UAC (but I don't need them anyway)

- VAIO Control Centre (will allow you to change what the S1 and S2 keys do, even though you can't use them :) )

That's it and it worked for me.

SOURCE: fn key for laptop sony vaio vgn-s460p

the function keys doesnt need any extra driver.

but if you want to use tha additional features of function key like save, load, close and many more then you can get the software directly from official website of sony. alternativel you can download hotkeycontrol xp by which you can reconfigure you keyboard to add extra feature and options

SOURCE: Sticky FN Key problem

Hello there:
Laptop keyboards are notorious for sticking after time due to small particles of dirt or oils from our skin and if you smoke believe it or not smoke from a cigarette is very bad on keyboards and computers in general.
What you can do to try to solve this problem is to get a can of canned air then turn off the laptop and dissconnect the power cord then
get a very small flat tip screw driver and CAREFULLY pry off the faulty key pad then take a q tip and some rubbing alcohol and wipe the area that it connects to .
Now take the canned air and spray down the entire keyboard and let sit for 10 minutes then replace the key pad and then replace the power cord and turn on the laptop and see if this now will work ok
Please keep me posted on how this is going
Best regards Michael

Key of fn is not working, combinations of fn key like fn+f1 = sleep it's not working. can you kindly please give me a good solutions?


You may need the Lenovo one key recovery download, the one for windows 7 may work with windows 8 ? There is not a one key downloadable driver for windows 8 on your system the one offered for windows 7 is available in 32 or 64 bit. The power profile for your device sleep wake ect can be adjusted through windows power management it may also need to be adjusted through the nvidia soft ware if it has nvidia graphics. All your troubles would be present if you re installed an OS or upgraded if so there may be several missing drivers ect.

It's a commom problem when you upgrade to a new OS, Win 8. You have to find the Win 8 drivers. Is that the only thing? In Device Manager, search for hardware changes, locate Win 8 drivers at ASUS website.

Hello there. Follow my steps:
  1. Go to support.asus.com
  2. Select "Download" (if you don't see a "Download" button due to being in another language, select the last item from the main menu and select "English)
  3. Find your laptop model using the wizard
  4. Select your operating system (to determine whether if it's a 32bit/64bit, go to your start menu > right click on "Computer" for Windows Vista/7 or "My computer" for Windows XP and look for a text which says "XX bit operating system)
  5. Go to the "ATK" tree
  6. Download the "ATK Hotkey Utility" thingy and install it.

My wireless wont turn on on medion akoya E5211 ... i need to turn on my wireless connection switch and dont know how or where it is


I had the same problem so I rang Medion & they told me go to the Medion website and download "Launch Manager" from your driver page. It's a program that turns on all of the Fn keys. Thus making the wireless (Fn+F1) work as well as the brightness (Fn+F8 or F9).
This is the only way to get it to work

Hello After i installed the new windows-7 ultimate 64bit, my FN key ceased to function. i tried many solutions amongst them downloading drivers from the Toshiba site, but still not working. How can i make...


Your Laptop has no support for windows 7, never mind the x64 version.
The last supported OS was XP.
If the FN keys are the only thing not working, you have been very lucky.
You may get some help by searching X64 windows 7 forums

Reg: WIFI drivers not getting installed


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. go to programs and features and look for lenovo readycom, uninstall the software and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
