    Alright, in other laptops, in order to use the functions on the f keys like Brightness, or volume etc.. i need to press fn and then the fkey.. on this laptop.. if i press the key, the function happens.. to use the regular keys like f1,f2 i need to press fn. So games that require those keys, i need to constantly be pressing fn key so they can work as normal. Does anyone know any fix to this? It's ridiculous!

    Yep there's a toggle setting in the BIOS for the function keys. By default it's set to require holding the Fn key down before you can use the function keys, so if you were to use the keyboard to refresh your current webpage you'd have to press Fn+F5.

    It should be easy enough to find this toggle setting on the BIOS.
