Hello KHAN88,

 

Are you stating your F keys will not function without pressing the FN key along with it, is that correct?

 

Just want to make sure I understand your issue.

 

Please respond back at your earliest convenience.

Thanks

I have this exact same issue.

 

When I press F3, it shows the brightness control.

What I want: Press F3 and the keyboard sends F3 to any application I am currently using, like 99.99% of all keyboards in the world.

 

I went in the BIOS, and set the value of "Action Keys Mode" to either Disabled or Enabled. It's always the same. F3 triggers the brightness.

 

I checked that the value is preserved in BIOS, after rebooting. There is no way to get rid of this weird behavior.
