How to unlock the fn key when BIOS action key mode disabled doesn't work

Envy
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

My fn key is locked, meaning that when I press the f5 key, the page refreshes. I have already tried accessing BIOS and disabling the action key mode that controls the fn key. Whether I enable or disable it, the fn key remains locked. I am thusly without a backlight on my keyboard and have to access sound and brightness with my mouse 😞. My laptop is a windows 8 64bit Envy. Please help me unlock the fn key.
