Re: Lenovo ideapad Z710 How to disable function keys?

Same experience for Slovakia.

no bios - they told that the update will be available soon on the web.

But soon can be next year... :-)

I used autohotkey script to switch F2 key to F4 and F11 to F2

 

; idealpad
<!F4:Smiley Frustratedend {F4}
F2::F4
F11::F2

 

and now I can use F2 as the standard F4 with other combination with CTRL and ALT

Re: Lenovo ideapad Z710 How to disable function keys?

@romanh Thanks, but It's not solution for me. I'm accustomed to F4... But how the other users in this thread got the fixed bios? There must be a way to...

Re: Lenovo ideapad Z710 How to disable function keys?

Hello, this is all fine, but the problem is that I already wrote email to support here in slovakia, and also sent a private message to Cleo_Lenovo asking for that update and i got no response at all.  I don't know whether this is due to the fact that this thread has been closed for some time.  But this doesn't mean that other people magicaly stopped having that problem (meaning issue with F4 key stuck with Alt )  It's a really frustrating glitch that and makes me unable to work in certain programs properly.  I am kindly asking again for that BIOS update.  

 

please respond

 

thank you

Admin's in-boxes get full of unsolicited private messages, sometimes into the hundreds, and if they were to answer all of them they probably wouldn't have very much time, if any, to deal with issues in the forums.

Re: Lenovo ideapad Z710 How to disable function keys?

Hi All,

I'm chasing the backend team again for the release of the BIOS. They just did it for G700 last week.

Sorry for inconvenience caused.

Regards,
Cleo

Re: Lenovo ideapad Z710 How to disable function keys?

Hi All,

 

The fix for the issue of closing windows whenever pressing Fn+F4 can be fixed with new BIOS version 7FCN90WW and above.

 

Finally, the BIOS with now version 7FCN95WW has been available in support site last week. Check below:

 

BIOS UPDATE FOR WINDOWS 7 (32-BIT, 64-BIT), WINDOWS 8 (32-BIT, 64-BIT), WINDOWS 8.1 (32-BIT, 64-BIT)...

 

Sorry for inconvenience caused. It's a challenge to change the process and we're happy that we finally make a progress this year.

 

Best regards,

Cleo

 

P.S. I posted a recommendation earlier in this message 70 page 7 by directing users to service centre for flashing the BIOS 7FCN90WW.
