Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Notebook ?

Fn key is broken

\015 Acer Aspire 5672. I have no current laptop keyboard because i haven't been able to afford one after I spilt soda on it. :( I'm currently using a standard USB keyboard.I'm trying to set it so I can use an external monitor and shut off the laptop lcd via the Fn+F5 key, but there is no Fn key on my current USB keyboard. Is there another way I can do this without having to replace the laptop keyboard? Thanks.\015

Answers :

Go to http://www.laptopkey.com/ and order missing key. They have a video guide how to remove and reattach keys. The easiest way i think is to order a new keyboard from ebay for as little as 25$ like i did.
Im afraid not, unless you can pull the key (im assuming its just the key) from another keyboard. note that you can change the display settins (in XP) through the desktop settings
