F2 - F12 Keys Not Working


Hello again,

Simply put, I think it's the design of my laptop. Whenever I use any function that uses F2-F12 they fail. I think it's primarily because the laptop has them set to "Brighter" "Dimmer" "Play" "Pause" etc. Is there a way to make those functions secondary, and the F2-F12 keys primary?

In your BIOS setup. My laptop has the same thing, and in the BIOS setup I changed from "Media Keys" to "Function keys".

Thank you, that seems to have worked. Although mine were called "Action Keys" and although they were enabled (which means they should have been working) I had to disable them to get them working (not sure why).

The only key that doesn't work now is F4, but I'm alright with that.
