Can't set hotkey mode on Legion Y540-17IRH

2019-11-04, 5:42 AM

Hello.

 

I would like to be able to correctly set the hotkey mode, so that my function keys will default to their special functions (adjusting volume, brightness, etc). I have been unable to find this setting in either the BIOS or the Lenovo Vantage app. I have tried updating the BIOS, restoring it's defaults, both updating and reinstalling the Lenovo Vantage app, and still the setting is no where to be found. Please help.

 

The laptop is a Legion Y540-17IRH

 

Thank you

- Max

There is NO SOLUTION 'cause Y540 has not such functionality (even on newest BIOS 32WW).

Hi All,

 

Try to update the BIOS of the computer to 33WW; download link here (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/legion-series/legion-y540-17irh/downloads/DS539700).

 

Let us know if this works,

 

Regards,

Jerry_Lenovo

Most of these models has an option in the BIOS to flash the BIOS to it's previous version. Usually it is under the Configuration tab. You can also use apps or software like AutoHotkey. I used this before with my non Lenovo laptop and it works fine.
