Fn key not working on Thinkpad 12 Yoga 1st generation (french keyboard)

2016-10-29, 11:52 AM

Hello,

 

After a clean installation of Windows 10 (and update to 10.1), my Fn key is not working even with the hotkey features integration up to date (8.80.14).

Right now, the Fn key is locked through the bios and all keys functions F1-F12 (volume, brightness...) work,as they should (I can increase or decrease volume, brightness...).

But the keys which need the Fn key despite of the bios lock (actual F1-F12, Esc for FnLk and Space for keyboard backlit) do not work. The problem is with the Fn key. Does anyone have a similar issue?

 

Thank you in advance and let me know if you need further information!

Do you mean that you changed some BIOS setting in Config -> Keyboard/Mouse?

If this isn't what you mean, then what do you mean by "The Fn key is locked through the BIOS"?

Hi, thanks for your reply. I meant the Fn key is always active (set up in the bios), when I press F1 I mute the volume (I don't need to press the Fn key at the same time) .

I'm still confused.  Can you tell me exactly what your BIOS settings are in Config -> Keyboard/Mouse?

Sure:

Fn Sticky Key: disabled

F1-F12 as primary function: disabled

These are the default settings.  So you haven't changed anything in BIOS, correct?

I checked my Yoga 12 here, and I'm not seeing any problem.

Does Fn-Esc make green LED on Fn key turn on and off?
