Re: Function keys on the z500

I have been waiting very very very patiently for this, it's just a bios upgrade. How hard could it be?

Re: Function keys on the z500

Hi All,

 

I'm sorry to keep you guys waiting. There was some technical issues and got resolved.

 

A new BIOS just released today.
BIOS Update for Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Notebook - version 1.21
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.

 

 

Please follow the steps in the link above. Anything with the new bios, please create a topic discussion topic for easier tracking.

 

Thanks!

 

Best regards,

Cleo

Re: Function keys on the z500

Cleo_Lenovo,

 

Thank you very much for your efforts. 

 

I wasn't going to buy another Lenovo product, but having in mind that this case in finally fixed I will definitely reconsider that.

 

BIOS update works (using win7).

 

Others: I wouldn't blame Cleo for those 11 months, I think it's not his fault, but the support team as a whole.

 

Thanks again.
