Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

What Lenovo model you own?

 

It looks in the images that you are pressing a key combination that brings up the speaker volume and muted speaker function. I assume that you want to perform a function like that without the need to press two keys at the same time?  Depending on what Lenovo model you own, there is a setting in the BIOS Setup that changes the use of the Function key from pressing FN + F key to just pressing the F key.   Please check your BIOS Setup for that setting.

Re: Pressing FN keys randomly changes FN pictures showing on screen

Hi, Sorry for the late reply,

 

My Laptop is Lenovo G40. My problem is that there are 2 kinds/type of interface showing sometimes its different and the next day its different again. Im not talking about mute or volume up/down. What Im trying to say is that sometimes the icon/picture is white one next time its the orange one. I think i have 2 different version installed on my unit. look at the pic the drawing is different.  The interface picture is randomly changing all the time.

 

Thanks

What is your full model number?   Example: G40-70

 

And what operating system you have installed?

 

Depending on the model and operating system, some Lenovo models use a application like Lenovo Utility to control On Screen Displays.  I am thinking if your system is using such an application that it needs to be un-installed, reboot and then re-installed to correct any issues.

I don't see any Lenovo Utility available for the G40-70.  Quite possible the on screen display is part of the Power Management driver for your system.  I would try re-installing the appropriate driver for your operating system.
