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 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

Ive lost my hotkeys on my keyboard


Sounds like your keyboard driver has either stopped working or has been removed. Keyboards will function as normal without specific drivers but hotkeys etc. wont work. Look at the manufactures web site for keyboard drivers, usually they are pretty good at providing the downloads. without them installed correctly hotkeys will not work. Once installed run the software and check the keys assignments.

I can't find the the hotkey utility application from the sony web site.model is VGN-NR160E. Tks !


To enable the Function keys in the Computer, it is required to install VAIO Event Services. In older Computers, the application was called Hotkey Utility and in the newer Models, VAIO Event Services is used to enable the Function keys. You can download the VAIO Event Services (Notebook Utility) from the link below.

Unable to use CD rom disk drive on Acer 5315 2142 model. Can PF Keys or Hotkeys be used to enable CD ROM disk drive? Disk drive was manually disabled by Device Manager. However, this happened while I was...


There are no hotkeys that disable a CD.
I'm thinking that your problem is that the CD has gone from the registry.
Download and run CDGONE. Here is one source:

Brightness


You have a blue key that says FN (stands for function) on the bottom left side of your keyboard, next to control and shift. The brightness and dimming hotkey is usually on the arrow keys or up on your f row, f1-f12 and you'll see like a sun and half sun in blue, same as the function key. While holding that function key tap keys you found and it'll brighten and darken. If it doesn't, you may need hotkey software installed, a new LCD (backlight may have failed) or inverter which powers the LCD.
