Re: Re:Lenovo G500s FN key request

2014-12-12, 9:06 AM

Unfortunately, this issue is not solved for the Lenovo G500s Touch Laptop. A few points:

* The hyperlink to http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS036479 no longer works. I've figured the same file is available from the G500s support page. But the file 78cn25ww.exe does not apply to the touch G500s. The error message I get when I run it is, "This BIOS is not for your Notebook PC". 

* The current version of my BIOS is 7BCN28WW v1.11 - I cannot find any later BIOS for it.


A question for Lenovo - could you release a BIOS update to allow the hotkey swap for the G500s Touch Laptop?


And a question for everybody - is there a software solution for this? I really need ordinary F key action...
