2013-09-25, 3:02 AM

HI, can you post the link to download your app? Or post instruction on how to do it, step by step in here.

Hope that you can post a slight lengthy instruction to guide even the computer illiterate (for some).

Please also let us all know what keys are not working.

 

THank you for your time.

Hi, this is the script that I mentioned before. You can directly compile it in AutoIt. The only problem is only f1 to f3 keys are working since i created just for playing games that doesn't use so much F keys.

 

HotKeySet("{VOLUME_MUTE}","_mute")
HotKeySet("{VOLUME_DOWN}","_voldown")
HotKeySet("{VOLUME_UP}","_volup")

While 1
   Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _mute()   
   Send("{F1}")
EndFunc

Func _voldown()
   send("{F2}")
EndFunc

Func _volup()
   Send("{F3}")
EndFunc

 

This is the link for the compiled version. No virus or whatsoever.

Hi All,

 

Thanks for your patience indeed! I have good news for you :smileyhappy:

 

A new BIOS has just been released! Download the BIOS version below will enable you to have the options of enable/disable the hotkey.

 

Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit), Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit)

BIOS Update for - Lenovo G400s, G500s - version 2.02

 

Note: Make note of any settings you have changed in the BIOS Configuration Utility. These settings may have to be re-entered after updating the BIOS.

Attention: Do not power off or restart your computer during the BIOS flashing process, which will cause serious damage and improper functioning of your computer.

 

For any issues with the new BIOS, please create a new discussion topic for easier tracking.

 

Thank you!! 

 

Regards,

Cleo

You're looking at the wrong topic, this is G400(s)/G500(s).

Welcome to the community.

 

The BIOS update that Cleo linked to is specifically for the G400s and G500s, which is likely the reson for the error message.

 

Currently, there is no BIOS update listed in your G510 driver matrix:

ok, here is an update.

 

Earlier I had enabled the BIOS setting which says something like ...allow restore of previous version. I reset it to disable and tried to update bios. So now the error message is changed as below...now I don't have new bios option...can you please guide?

 

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
This BIOS is not for your Notebook PC.
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

 

 

Additional Info:

Current bios : vigwq7

Version: 79cn29ww v 1.13

New bios: vilg1

Version: 7bcn36ww v 2.02

 

Please help..IM really unhappy with function key issue as i need to use those often...I have liked almost all other features of g510, so I want to retain this product if function key issue gets resolved. Otherwise, I will need to think of returning it. :(

Please see my response directly above your post.

7bcn36ww v 2.02 is specifically for the G400s/G500s.

Thanks for the quick response Sarbin.

Any plans by Lenovo to to provide the required fix or an alternate option?

This FN key feature is really annoying!

 

Also can you please add this request in product backlog so that concerned team can have a look into this issue? I see many people facing this issue. Please please please!

 

Please let me know if I need to put this request with some other group/poc.
