I am using windows 8 and HP Pavilion laptop.
I am playing games that require using f keys sometimes, but these f keys do different things in the desktop or whatsoever.
F1 opens up some kind of windows help bar, f2 makes the screen darker and f3 lighter.
I searched HP support forums and found someone else having the same problem. I followed the instructions and went to disable my action keys in system configurations. I saved the new settings and rebooted laptop, but still those fkeys work without using fn button.
What to do ?

You state after disabling the action keys in the BIOS the F keys still work without having to use the FN key along with them, is that correct? I will try to assist you with this.
Can you please provide the make and model of the computer you have, if you are unsure where to locate that information have a look at this link for help.
Please respond back at your earliest convenience.
