Solved Function key is not working

October 6, 2016 at 12:54:48
Specs: Windows 7
When a client presses the function key on top, it only does the additional keys like lowering the volume and what not. It will not perform the function for the F keys (F5 - refresh screen, etc). In order to be able to press F5 or any other F key, I will have to press Shift first in which you normally will have to press Shift to access the additional functions associate with that key. Please help!

The device is a Lenovo laptop T440.

Wasn't able to unearth much. Fn keys covered in page 24 here (maybe page 40 in PDF Viewer) but I doubt there is anything there that you don't already know:

I wonder if some key is stuck but keep watching for other ideas.

Derek,
Actually, that manual worked. I went to p.24 which showed if you press the FN+ESC keys, this turns the F keys on or off. Thanks for your help!
