My laptop was stuck on FN (the green light wouldn't turn off), but I switched it back to normal by holding down Fn + F11 and then letting go of Fn.

Fantastic. It works. To free Fn key, just press Fn + F11 simultaneously. Thanks a lot.

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

It doesn't work for me because my laptot doesn't has the numlock or scrollock buttons and it's a LAPTOP, not a netbook

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.

Finally, on the dell inspiron using the Numlk alone works.

Thanks again

many keyboards just you need to press the numlock key

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!!
