Fn key problem with Gateway notebook

\015 \015\012\015\012My Gateway notebook thinks that the Fn key is pressed when it is not, and it thinks the Fn key is not pressed when it is. Take the \342\200\234k\342\200\235 key ,for example. This key also has a blue colored \342\200\2342\342\200\235 on it, meaning I am supposed to get a \342\200\2342\342\200\235 if I hold down the Fn key. Just the opposite occurs. If I do not hold down the Fn key, I get a \342\200\2342\342\200\235. If I do hold down the Fn key, I get a \342\200\234k\342\200\235. The fact that pressing or not pressing the Fn key changes the behavior of the \342\200\234k\342\200\235 key, makes me think the Fn key is not stuck. It also does not look or feel stuck. \015
