    fn keys not working on laptop


    After install of RP 8, most of my fn key are not functioning properly or that when pressed they don't show on the screen as it did with 7.

    That is quite weird if assuming you already installed its native application. I found most of my laptops (ASUS, Fujitsu, and Toshiba) have their fn keys just work when the appropriate chipset driver were installed, even before its native fn application is installed, of course lacking the fn animations. Two of them are running Win 8.

    Have you tried reinstalling drivers? Who knows it resolves the matter? Just my poor guess.

Hi. This is really random. The keys are messing up. They either won't work or type double. I can only presume it's a virus. I've tried to gain access to my password protected user account via my guest account but I can't type the password in because of the way it's messing up. I want to use...

I have a Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200 with windows 8, and none of the function keys are working, although they used to work. Windows 8 does not have flash cards, nor is there a keyboard option on computer settings. Any ideas?
