Re: How can the S10 OKR key be remapped?

2009-10-20, 23:02 PM

First of all, id like to make sure that we are not fighting over this issue, we are just arguing for the sake of knowledge :D

 

I scanned the "F8" key on my netbook and desktop and both returned the value "66" which indicates that "66" is a universal value of "F8". Also on the homepage of KeyTweak it states:

"Can KeyTweak affect the Fn key on my laptop? No, that key doesn't generate scancodes."

which in my guessing means that the OKR key is a combination of "F8" and an unidentified, "Fn" like, code.

 

Please scan the "F8" key on your netbook and verify the results..

I am far away from fighting! :smileywink:

 

You can't rely to 100% on that KEYBOARD CHART - manufacturers reserve the rights to map keys differently (mostly done in the BIOS itself). What result do you get when scanning your OKR KEY?

That's exactly my point: it shouldn't be! If both return the same value then both keys should have the same function under Windows and do the exact same thing. Maybe you need to reflash or upgrade your BIOS?

Can you please scan and post the codes of your F8 and OKR keys?

Nope, I do no longer have my S10 - replaced it a while ago with a compact 11" laptop. I would have done so otherwise.

Has anyone been able to make this work on a U series laptop?  When I try the Key Tweak app, no scan code number is shown when I press the one-key button.  The one key button has to be a key or combination of keys, right?

KeyTweak will UNFORTUNATELY not help on newer models (like my Lenovo Y560p), which has the FN, OKR and a few other keys coded on low level (or maybe as a HID device?). Either way the only path to salvation lies within Lenovo to:

 

1) Release some source code around those keys.

2) Release some USEFUL application for once that would allow users to remap these keys.

3) Some RawInput from HID interface program (if the special keys are a separate HID device, which I am not sure of).

 

This would be just so awesome, Lenovo pretty please?

Hi,

 

I was pointed to interesting old thread, as a reply on my question here:

 

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-and-Z-series/Onekey-Recovery-7-0-Engineering/td-p/709075

 

I  just want the onekey recovery button to work again, even i bought my laptop without OS,

and installed my own Windows 7 ultimate.

 

Please Lenovo, release the software and information to make this 'Novo' button to work, after people installed

their new harddrive or own OS.  PLEASE.......
