E320 Fn-Keys not working

Hi,

 

I just bought a Lenovo E320 laptop with 128GB SSD w/o OS. I installed Win7 Pro 64x from a USB drive and every driver from the lenovo support site that seemed sensible. Including chipset, video, network drivers etc. I also installed UltraNav Drivers and "Hotkey Integration" for Windows 7.

But most of the hotkeys don't work. Volume +/-/mute (Fn + F1-3) and brigtness (F7-8) work, but the others don't. Pressing Fn+F9 for wireless connections doesn't yield any reaction. Plus when I'm changing brightness or volume there is no indication of the new brightness/volume value on the screen. I can start TPOnScr.exe from "Hotkey Integration" but still no effect.

I also installed ThinkVantage System Update device and had it check for anything that might be missing. It only brought up a couple of Win7 updates and bluetooth drivers. But I can't activate bluetooth because Fn + F9 doesn't do anything.

Does anyone have a clou what I'm doing wrong? Oh and I changed function keys settings in bios to "legacy" so that I have to press FN to access the hotkeys. Just to avoid any confusion.

 

Oh and there is another thing: The device manager shows an unknown device which I can't seem to identify. Any hints what that could be?

 

Regards,

Re: E320 Fn-Keys not working

hey Cubic00,

welcome to the forums.

try uninstalling the software and before you install it, set your unit to diagnostic mode first via msconfig before installing.

also if your bios is less than version 1.16/1.15 ; do update it.

Re: E320 Fn-Keys not working

Hello again,

 

the bios has already been updated. But I found a solution that is probably pretty similar to yours. I uninstalled "Hotkeys features integration" and installed ThinkVantage System Update device and had it install everything again. Looks like I missed to install Thinkad Power Management software. Now everything is alright.

 

Thanks for the help and bye.
