[G570]Fn button is not working

Question

I have a Lenovo G570. I switched from windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit both of them) and I removed all the partitions. When I try to use the volume or brighness feature by pressing down the Fn key and the volume-up/down or the brightness, it wont work. I might have erased something I shouldn't have. How do I get my "Fn" key to work ?

Answer

To fix the issue, please install the following drivers:

 

1. The display driver available on lenovo consumer website.

If you have Intel display card then the version for the driver should be 8.15.10.2342

 

2. Lenovo Energy Management Software; this can be download from the below web link:

Tip:  A hotkey driver in the Lenovo Energy Management which will fix the Funtion keys

Hello all

I am new here, looking for some help regarding my Lenovo G570.

Yesterday, it was working perfectly, I properly shut is down. I have set a BIOS pasword.

Today, when I switch it on, I was unable to type the pasword becasu some keys were not working. However, I managed to loged in with the help of On Screen Keyboard. After analysing it, I came to know that some keys on numpad includeing 0,2 and on the 2nd line(vertical numerical keys) 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,0 are not working. I tried to re-install the OS but I set a BIOS paswoed containing one of the missing keys.

Please let me know whether it is a software problem or should i take my laptop to some repairing shop?

Thanks :)
