Y470: FN key does not work when pressed


I own the Lenovo Ideapad Y470 and I noticed that the FN keys stopped working/displaying when pressed. This happens when I press the the FN arrows and FN F1 keys.

I update the Nvidia drivers regularly and this was only a recent occurrence.


As Fn keys work with installation of Lenovo Energy Managment which has hotkey bundled inside, thus it would be good if you can give this software a check.


Thus, one of the things you can do to try to address this issue is to reinstall this software.

To do so, go to the following links:
For Windows 7, http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS027354

For Windows 8, http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS030850


Click on Download Now and an .exe file will be downloaded onto your system. Save/Run it.

Restart your system.
