My factory settings on the kayboard are such that the actual functions can only be accessed using an additional key. For example, f2 is primarily a contrast key and I need to hit "fn" then f2 to have the f2 function.
How can I set it up so that the primary functions are the f and the secondary (contrast volume...) are accesssed as secondary?

Thank you for the information.
I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
To change the action key setting from the BIOS Setup Utility.
Press and hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
Turn on the computer and immediately press the f10 key repeatedly to open the BIOS Setup Utility.
Press the right or left arrow key to select the System Configuration menu.
Press the up or down arrow key to select Action Keys Mode.
Press the Enter key to display the Enabled / Disabled menu.
Press the up or down arrow key to select one of the options.
Enabled: Does not require pressing fn to use the actions printed on the function keys.
For example, pressing f8 lowers the sound as printed on the key. Alternately, pressing both the fn + f8 minimizes and maximizes a web browser.
Disabled: Requires pressing fn to use the actions printed on the function keys.
For example, pressing f1 opens a help window. Alternately, pressing both the fn + f1 keys puts the computer to sleep as printed on the key.
Press the f10 key to save the selection and restart the computer.
And, also the Windows key on your keyboard is labelled as a Windows flag icon or and is used in many key press combinations.
