Re: FN Keys stopped working - ideapad y400


Thank you very much for you support. I will definitely try to use one key recovery as soon as I am able to backup all my data. And if that doesn't work, should find a repair shop that I can trust.

One last thing. Is there any way to toggle the keyboard backlight other then the hotkey combination. It's my biggest problem right now.


Thank you a lot.

I'm sorry to say but the Fn key and backlight activation is a BIOS level also the reason why the FN key cannot be remapped to other keys and AFAIK no Software can trigger that function to enable it, it really has to be the Fn+Space combination.
