Legion Y530 keyboard “Fn” key locked?

Hello all,

 

I’ve run into an issue where it seems some combination of key presses has inadvertently locked my “Fn” key, leaving me unable to type with any of the keys and instead opening random shortcuts etc. I checked the BIOS and there is no option to configure hotkeys, and Lenovo Vantage does not offer the option either. Windows 10 settings do not offer the option to adjust hotkeys either due to the lack of gpedit.msc and inability to “unhide” the relevant settings.

 

Has anyone else encountered this issue? If so, what is the work around? Thanks!

Hi, thanks for your response. Unfortunately I have tried the recommendations from that article and the BIOS, although it is updated, does not offer the “configuration” option of hotkeys. I am using a Lenovo Legion, is there a specific workaround for this model?

 

thanks!

Could you go to BIOS and set up default settings by pressing fn+f9? Then press fn+f10 to save and exit. See if there'll be any changes.
