CTRL and FN keys suddenly swapped [Elitebook 8460p]

Hello, 

 

the CTRL and FN keys of my notebook suddenly swapped. 

Now the FN key performs as CTRL key and vice versa. 

 

First I thought the CTRL is not working at all. 

 

This is really annoying. 

Any way to change back to the default behaviour or is this a warranty case?

 

Thank you & best regards,

Philipp

Folks with the 4530 series ProBooks found by removing the battery and AC power, then re-applying power seems to solve this quirk....

I had this problem on my HP Zbook 14 and resetting the Fn Key Switch/Swap in the BIOS was not fixing the problem in Windows.  The Fn key was working like the Ctrl key in windows but the Ctrl key was dead.  By removing power and the battery and then powering up fixed the problem on my HP Zbook 14 on January 4th, 2015.

 

Thanks for the post.

 

Cheers, cH :smileyhappy:
