To disable Fn on netbooks or laptops you need to press Fn+Numlock and it's all.

yes but what if you dont have the scr lock key im on an inspiron and we dont have the num scr and so keys
I have the same problem. I have no num or scroll lock on my Dell laptop, so I can't turn off or on the Fn key. Best bet it just finding something to hold it down, unless anyone can think of a better solution.

start yr netbook, when it show Dell loading screen, press F12 (boot options).
pick the bottom option (enter setup)
n then choose the second tab from the left with yr keyboard (Advanced).
pick the option "function behavior" press enter
the choices are multimedia and function.
from what I read, yr fn behavior must be at multimedia. so pick the other one. and choose exit tab, save changes and exit.
thats all..
n you dont hv to repeat this step everytime you start yr netbook, coz its fixed..
hope it'll help.
Really thx a lot man,
That stupid fn. key was driving me crazy,
and finally I got rid of it

FOR DELL MINI NETBOOKS that have function keys ( FN key) locked o stuck:

You need to press FN and the key that is next to your "space" key (between "space key" and "alt gr") simultaneously! (it's at the bottom of your keyboard, it has two little arrows on it).

It's a miracle! It works!!!!! I am spreading the word because I've been looking at websites fro the last three hours and no one had answers.

Your Function key will not be stuck anymore!!
