Re: Some Function keys not working

Hi majdsdk!


Thanks for using the community forums.


Could you try to press the Fn key together with the function keys of your laptop and see if it will work? With regards the visual notification of the Caps Lock and NUM Lock of your laptop, I did a quick research about this issue, some users were able to fix this by uninstalling/reinstalling the keyboard driver of the laptop. Could you try that step and check if it works?
