Having problems with your Dell Latitude CPX Notebook ?
Function Key Issue
\015 Whenever I type a key that has a function command associated with it, the function key command is executed as if the "Fn" key was pressed down. When pressing the "Fn" key and then pressing the same key, it acts as if the "Fn" key is not pressed down. I've replaced the keyboard but to no avail. I have searched the Acer support site for a keyboard driver but could not find one, also I would use the recovery disks that I created when I bought the notebook but as I'm sure you've guessed, I have lost them:( Any advice or direction on what driver I need and where I can find it, or is a Motherboard problem? I'm positive that it has had no water damage so I am baffled at this one.... \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012My Fn Key appears to be permanently on too. Have to keep holding down for regular QWERTY functions, please advise!\015
Use air compressed can to clean under and around key (if issue could be mechanical)
Try pressing the 'fn' key and the 'insert' key at the same time and that will change your 'mode;.
