Hello,

I have a problem with my Function key. It seems it is active all the time, I cannot check if it's enabled in BIOS, because nothing happens then I press/hold F1 then my computer restarting. I cant type most of letters, keyboard arrows do not work. But then I press Fn+CTRL+ALT it fixes the problem for like 5-10 seconds.

Yesterday I reinstalled my BIOS, still no progress.

Need help.

Thank you
here's something that was posted right below your post.. see if it works for ya



The Fn key is locked

If you're writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk
