Hi, ihave HP G56 Notebook PC
i have all these strange hotkeys on my laptop doing non-standard things.. it's pretty confusing.. Alt-F4 doesn't work anymore, for instance, since the F4 key is now a monitor key.. How can i make it also the F1-F12 keys by default.. like when i press F1 it's just F1.. because when i play a game on my laptop when i press F1 key it doesn't work..
Please Help me!!
You Can disable that functionality by disabling "Action Keys Mode" in the BIOS...

Ok, that works for the fn / f1-f12 buttons, but how do I disable the column of action keys down the left hand side of the keyboard. At some point I am going to scream if Power DVD keeps lumbering into life everytime I miss the tab key.
