X240 Fn-Key not responding


I have the following problem. The 'Fn' key is not working. When I press 'Fn+Esc' to enable the FnLock, nothing happens. But when I switch the 'Fn' and 'CTRL' key in the BIOS, I can press 'Ctrl+Esc' to enable the lock (small green LED on the 'Fn' key is on). But then the 'CTRL' functionality (now on the 'Fn' key) is not working anymore. The shop where I ordered the Laptop already replaced the keyboard but this didn't help. Does anybody have the same problem and can help me?


Thank you.


Additional information:

- I ordered the Laptop in Germany, but with an US keyboard layout (the Shop replaced the german keyboard with an english one)

- I updated the BIOS when I received the Laptop (below the BIOS information):
