Windows 8.1 on Z510 Fn+ Function keys doesnt work and I dont see any Lenovo to make them work again

This computer came with FreeDos and I had to buy a retail windows, so it wasnt custom set for the laptop and when I go to Lenovo driver page for Z510, the only driver in the touchpad and keyboard page is the touchpad drivers.

Nothing for the keyboard.

 

So what am I missing? Where can I go to turn on those extra function keys?

By the way, I did check in BIOS and hotkeys is turned on.

Yes, I did everything except the intel and Nvidia graphic drivers, but I am also formating and reinstalling windows to make sure its not a botched windows install

 

I will post an update if I still have a problem later tonight but if anybody has ever had the problem, any known solutions are useful since I havent seen anything related asked bfore except for people wanting to disable the hotkeys Smiley Tongue

For some reason function keys started to work on their own. I dont know why, but happy for that.

Apparently I had a motherboard problem and its all fixed now thanks to the repair center I went to.
