Re: Lenovo G500s FN key request

2013-11-07, 8:50 AM

Hi All,

 

We got the Z series fixed and now the engineering team is still working on the release of this G series BIOS. It should be ready in several weeks of time. 

 

Thanks for your patience.

 

Best regards,
Cleo

Hi All,

 

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

 

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

Follow the instruction of installation and you should be able to use the function keys without FN right away. If it doesn't you have to enable it in BIOS.

 

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.

 

How to go to BIOS in Windows 8? Check out this article: How to get into BIOS in Windows 8.

 

How to enable in BIOS: 

  1. In BIOS, go to Configuration tab
  2. Arrow down to find "HotKey Mode"
  3. Press Enter to change from "Hotkey Mode" to "Legacy Mode".
  4. Press Fn+F10 to save the settings and exit BIOS

If you can't find the HotKey Mode, please try reloading BIOS Default Settings.

You can do so by going to Exit > Load Default Settings.

 

 

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

 

Thank you!! 

 

Regards,

Cleo

Just wanted to say thanks for the update. Among other things, I am an AS/400 programmer. If you're not familiar with green screen applications, there are no buttons, or anything else to click for that matter. Every command is presented with a function key. Having to press the Fn key was slowing me down, but not anymore! Thanks again!!

Thanks to the OP Avernis for pushing the issue and to the techs at Lenovo for fixing it. I just got this laptop about 2 months ago to replace another company's laptop for which I HATED the keyboard. Low and behold this one had this issue with the Fx keys and I use them all the time.

 

The fix is excellent and even took into consideration our need for the keys to still handle the hardware requirements usine teh Fn key.

 

Well done!!!
