Function keys not working & no "Action keys mode" in my BIOS.

Hi, i have a Hp G61 about a year old and the O/S windows 7 ultimate. 3 months back the function keys stopped working (think it might b the "fn" key), i saw the other solutions but no i do not have the title "action keys mode" in my BIOS screen. Is there anything i can do? Do i maybe need to update my BIOS?

I have the same problem here. There is no action keys mode on my bios and it is the latest version. Yes, i checked many times, but there wasn't such mode. My "fn +" keys are not working.

 

 I also have a Hp Probook 4730s, with Bios F.29.

Function keys not working & no "Action keys mode" in my BIOS.

Hey guys,

I see that most of you are having a issue with the function keys.

Try this- http://goo.gl/gdlS3?

This is a hotfix for this issue. Now keep in mind this only supports
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Starter
Windows 7 Ultimate

So if you don't have this, then don't run this fix.

Also, If you guys can give me your product # and complete model name of the notebook you have, so I can send you a link to update your BIOS.

Here is a link to show you how to find your product #- http://goo.gl/vYKya

Thank you for your help, but another person had already answered me. =]

 

After I re-installed the keyboard drivers, the "fn + " keys became functional again. The driver i installed was "HP Quick Launch Buttons" or just "sp49456" if you want to know.

 

Thank you for your help, I am very pleased with it.
